Schedule Acceptance

In Dayforce, schedule acceptance is the process of signing off on changes made to your posted schedule. You can approve changes that work with your schedule, and reject changes that might conflict with other commitments.

When your manager makes a change to your posted schedule, you receive a schedule change offer in Work > Calendar. Dayforce marks shifts that have schedule change offers with the pending icon ():

When a change is made to your posted schedule, you can view the schedule change offer in Work > Calendar. Shifts with a schedule change offer are marked with the pending icon ():

The screenshot above shows the expanded schedule offer details for a shift. The Current Schedule section doesn’t show any details, which means that a new shift was added to this employee’s posted schedule.

You can respond to your schedule acceptance offers in Message Center and in Work > Calendar. See Manage Schedule Acceptance Offers.
