Viewing Cross-location Shift Coverage in the Crew App

When a shift coverage request is made from a Requesting Organization, all Covering Organizations will receive a push notification and employees can request to cover the shift by going to their Chats tab, tapping into the Shift Cover entry, and tapping 'Request shift'. The Requesting Organization's location details will be listed in the Shift Details section.

Once an admin of the Requesting Organization has approved the cover request, the approved employee will receive a push notification and will see the shift added to their Personal Calendar. The shift will also show on both organization's Team filter of the Calendar tab.
