As well as being able to view the full rota on the Rotas tab, you’re also able to view a more concise schedule of your own on the Shifts tab.

If you’re a Manager or Admin, you can use this page to view anyone on your team’s schedule.

To view this in RotaCloud, click on the Shifts tab, which is the third icon along the bottom of your screen.


Here, your schedule shifts will be shown from today, in chronological order. If you’re an Admin or Manager, tap the employee’s name in the top-left corner to switch to another employee.

As well as your shifts, you’ll also be able to see any days on which there are available Open Shifts, days you’re on leave, or when you have the day off.

You can tap ‘Back to Today’ to quickly jump back to the top of the list, and tap the calendar icon in the top-right corner to move to another date. With the calendar open, any days on which you have shifts or leave will be highlighted with an icon. Days will show with a square, triangle, or both icons beneath them if there are shifts, leave or both on the days, respectively.

Open Shifts

If there are any shifts available for you to claim, ‘Open shift available’ will show at the top of that day. Tap this to show all shifts that are available for you to claim.

Tap on the shift to see more information about it, and if you want to claim it, you can tap 'Claim Open Shift'. Please be aware you will not be able to claim a shift if you have a clashing shift, or if you are not assigned to work that particular Role.

Shift Actions

Tap on any of your own shifts to read more information about it, including the break time and how many paid hours the shift is worth. It’s on this page that you can also ask to drop the shift, such as if you’re unavailable or want to swap it with a colleague.

You can also request leave from this page by long-pressing on a shift or blank cell.

Please note: Shift drops and shift swaps may be something that has been disabled by your Account Owner.

Sorting and filtering


You’re able to see your availability alongside each date on your Shifts page. To do this, tap the ‘Sort & filter’ icon in the top right corner. Here, you can show or hide your Availability at any time using the 'Availability' switch, before tapping 'Apply'.

View shifts only

You can also use this menu to remove any leave or non-working days from this list, leaving only your shifts remaining. To do this, with the ‘Sort & filter’ menu open, select 'View shifts only' and tap 'Apply'. The shifts page will then reload, showing only the shifts that you are working.
