Cancel Assignment vs. Swap Request

If you want volunteers to cancel an assignment instead of requesting a sub, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Web Terminal pane
  2. Click on "Web Terminal settings..."
  3. Go to Assignments
  4. Check the box that reads "Allow volunteers to cancel assignments"
  5. Click OK
  6. Click Commit Changes

If you choose to use the setting that reads "but only up until x days before the assignment", one of the two following options may happen:

  • If you have Swap Requests turned on, then after cancellations are no longer allowed, the volunteer will begin to see the "request sub" link. 
  • If Swap Requests are turned off, the volunteer will not be able to cancel the assignment or request a sub.
