Currently, Shyft does not allow employees or managers to post a shift for a specific person to pick up. If you post a shift, it goes up on the Shift Feed, there it will be a first come first serve basis for who wants the shift. If the shift is picked up by someone on the team who is not fit for it or does not have the proper skill set for the shift, a manager can deny the shift swap and re-open the shift to other people on the team. While you can’t post a shift for a specific person, you can post a shift to a specific group chat.
