You can use Shift Bidding in Team Xpress to 'bid' on shifts that you'd like to work. At the end of the bidding deadline, your supervisor will choose a bidder to work the shift.
Note: This will only be available in your Team Xpress app if your supervisor has granted you access.

How to bid on shifts
If you qualify to work specific shifts that are posted for Shift Bidding, then you'll be able to find them under the Shifts for bidding tab.
You can check mark any shifts that you're interested in working, and Submit bid. To clear those from the list that you're not interested in working, check mark them, and click Decline bid.
Shift bid status
You can use the Your bids status to monitor the status of your shift bids. This will be divided by an In progress section, and a Completed section.
You'll also receive notifications to update you on your Shift Bidding statuses.
Notifications for Shift Bidding
You will receive notifications based on shifts available for bidding, and updates on the current status shifts you've bid on.
We highly encourage that you turn notifications preferences on for both email and SMS (if your company has an SMS package), so that you're fully aware of the current status of each of your shift bids. Also, it would be wise to allow Team Xpress to send notifications to your lock screen, too.
