Now you’re ready to book your first shift. Start by selecting the day you want to come to the office. You can only select days that are not fully booked yet.
Do you have questions about your quota, accessible locations or do you need an extra shift? Contact your administrator. Find the contact details on 'Your profile' page.
Select your favorite workplace
If applicable, select the location of your shift. You will only see the locations you can book. You can change the office, or select a floor, and area. The number of shifts available per location is also visible. When you come to the office, go to the location you have selected.
Share your shifts with colleagues
In Office Shifts, you can make a connection with your colleagues to see who is planning to be in the office on which days. Once you have made a connection, you can see the booked shifts of your connected colleagues, and they can see yours. Connections are easily made by sending or accepting a person’s invite.
- Go to 'Your connections' in the menu
- Search for your colleague, or enter their email address
- Send a connection invite
- When they've accepted your invite, their shifts will show up on the calendar

Manage and delete your shifts
After you've booked a shift, you can edit the location or delete the shift. Whenever your plans change, it's always a good idea to delete your shift. That will allow your colleagues to come to the office instead. To edit or delete your shift, tap on the booked shift in the calendar.
Deleting or editing a shift on the day itself is not always allowed by your company
