Tech Tip: Trade Your Shift With Me!

I've recently started getting spam messages to my cell phone and it is making me livid! This on top of what has become a daily routing of de-spamming my email inbox (and due to my personality, I go through all emails in "junk" just in case something good went there by happens...), I find myself feeling inundated with electronic communication! I'm spending more time than I should figuring out what is important and what isn't.

We wouldn't want you to feel that way about your Aladtec online employee scheduling system. 

I'm going to focus on one particular item that seems very popular among users of EMS Manager, FIRE Manager and Zanager: Trade Requests. While I'm sure many of you practice this already, others may not be aware of its presence. When submitting a trade request, you have the option to select who you specifically send trade requests to: 

Swap Details: Trade Recipients

You can even hold the CTRL key (Command on a Mac) to select multiple recipients. By default, trade requests are sent to all eligible recipients. This means any member who isn't already scheduled during the shift time to be traded and who is qualified for the schedule and position will receive a trade notification.

But let's say that you've already talked to someone ahead of time about the shift and you simply need to document the trade in your system. Send the request JUST to the person you plan on trading with! This way, other members will not receive a notification of your request. Of course, if you want to open your shift up to all eligible members, proceed as usual.
