Why isn't an Employee able to trade shifts?
If a shift is not showing on the tradeboard, it might be due to one of the following reasons:
If your Employees trying to use the tradeboard are having trouble getting their own shifts to appear on the tradeboard, here are some possible reasons:
Note that the request to trade or cover shifts will not appear on your Manager's Pending Trades page until another Employee clicks on the shift the first Employee posted and offers to work the shift.
Managers only see requests between Employees when the Employees themselves have both agreed to the requested trade.
For instance, if Employee A posts a shift1 to trade onto the tradeboard, then another Employee B has to click on the shift on the tradeboard and offer their shift2 in trade. Then Employee A has to approve the request to work shift2 for their shift1, and then once they do THEN the request will appear on your Manager Pending Trades page awaiting approval. So perhaps your Employees are not completing the approval of the trades being offered.
