The market allows you to advise other HosPortal users that you wish to give away or swap a shift, and allows the other users to take the shift by simply selecting it from the market.
The Market is a feature that may or may not be enabled for your site, or your role. If you can't see "Market" in the HosPortal navigator bar, it may not be enabled at your site. Talk to your administrator.
If the market option is enabled for your calltype, you can place shifts on the market. Shifts can be either placed as "swaps" or "gifts". One or both of these may be available at your site.
A "gift" means someone can take this shift from you. A "swap" means they swap your shift with one of their own that matches certain criteria. A "bounty" is a sum of money a user can attach to the swap or gift to encourage other users to take the item off the market. This is an arrangement between you and them, and HosPortal plays no part in this transaction other than to communicate the amount before and after the market transaction.
To market a shift
You can market one of your shifts from either your dashboard or directly from a selfroster period. Simply click one of your shifts and a market dialog will appear:
Select whether this is a gift, a swap or both (ie. user can either take the shift or swap it) plus add any bounty.
After you save this, it will be on the market. Any shifts on the market will be visible on both your home page and the market page.
Clicking any of your shifts currently on the market will allow you to remove them from the market, or change the options such as gift, swap or bounty.
When another user takes your shift off the market, you and they will receive an email with details of the change.
