Tip from the Compeat Team – Manager Swap Approval Setting

Customer Question: Right now, if a team member “offers” a shift to a particular person, it shows up on the shift approval page as awaiting employee approval.  We have had a couple of instances where a manager accidentally approved the trade, but the employee hadn’t even agreed to it yet.  Is there a way to turn that off, where the manager can’t approve it until the employee agrees to pick up the shift? 

Compeat Expert Answer: There is a setting within the Labor Scheduling Module settings page that is allowing your managers to approve these swaps, without the second employee approving the swap first. Simply set this to “No” and your issue will be resolved.
