Shifts: Split a shift

In this article

If enabled for your schedule, you have the option of splitting up one of your assigned shifts. This can be helpful, for example, if you can only work part of a shift and need to swap or give up the other portion. When you split a shift, you will be able to choose the duration for each part (e.g. if you have a 3-hour shift, you could split it into a 2-hour shift and a 1-hour shift). Once split, you can then swap or give up the portion(s) as needed.


To split a shift: 

  1. From your LibStaffer homepage, locate the shift you want to swap in your My Upcoming Shifts list.
  2. Click on the Split button.
    • Don't see this button? Then your schedule admin has not enabled shift splitting for your schedule.
Locating an upcoming shift
  1. In the Split Shift window, select the new end time for the first of the two shifts. The times for the second shift will be automatically calculated.
  2. Click the Split Shift button.
    • The shift will be split in two based on your selected times.
    • Please note that you will still be assigned to both portions of the split shift. However, you can still give up or swap one or both portions as needed.
