Accept or reject a shift

TimeForge is a great tool for managers because it makes employee scheduling and tracking attendance simple.

TimeForge is also great for employees because it gives them the power to accept or reject their shifts for someone else to pick up. If an employee decides to deny their shift and give it up, manager approval will still be required before it takes effect.The employee will have to log in to their TimeForge account and follow these steps to accept or reject their shift.

Log in to employee account
