3. After clicking on 'apply' the site will ask you for confirmation about applying just in case. If you are absolutely certain you wish to apply for this shift, click 'apply' again, and your application wish will be sent to your employer and the status of the shift should now be 'Submitted' instead of 'Available' and now all you need to do is wait for confirmation from your employer.

4. If you wish to cancel your application for whatever reason, click on 'Cancel' and again, the site will ask you if you're absolutely sure you want to cancel your shift application. If you click 'Confirm', your application will be cancelled.
