Shift Swapping

To learn more about the Tanda Shift Swapping feature click here.

  • Enable Shift Swapping
    You are able to decide if you would like Shift Swapping to be enabled or disabled for you staff be either having the check box ticked or not.
  • Shift Swaps Requires Manager Approval
    If you would like your managers to approve all shift swaps between employees ensure the box is checked.  By un-ticking the box your employees would be able to swap shifts among themselves without a managers approval.


The All Staff rule will always apply to all staff in your organisation.

Custom Rules

To create a custom rule press + New. You would create a custom rule if you wanted certain validations to apply to some staff but not all. There are two methods for targeting a subset of staff. They can be used independently or together.


To target staff by age we can enter either a minimum, maximum or both. To target a specific age we would enter the same age number for both minimum and maximum.

Award Tag

To target staff by an Award Tag, select one or more from the dropdown menu. The filter will apply to staff who have any of the selected Award Tags.

Once the filter has been set, we can see the affected staff by hovering over the blue text here:

Shift Validation

  • Max shift length: The maximum length of a shift, given in hours.
  • Min shift length: The minimum length of a shift, given in hours.
  • Min hours between shifts: The minimum amount of time between two shifts on two different days, given in hours.
