We know you’re busy, so we designed the Swing Education app for teachers on-the-go. With the app, you can view and accept requests, get access to your schedule, update your profile and more. Get started with the guide below.
Viewing New Requests & Commitments
Log in to the app — you only need to do this once — and you will be taken to the home screen. To view open requests, tap “Openings” at the bottom of the screen. To view your schedule, tap “Commitments”.
You can also sign up for waitlisted assignments. When you accept a waitlisted assignment, you will be placed into the request if the original sub cancels. To get on a waitlist, tap the “Waitlists” tab at the top of the screen. Tap the request you want, then tap “Add to Waitlist”.
Once you download and log into the app, you will be notified of new requests via push notification instead of SMS messages. With push notifications, you will now have all your Swing activity centralized in the app.
To accept a request from a push notification, tap the notification from your notification center. This will take you to the request page for that assignment, where you can view request details and accept the request.
If you'd like to switch back to SMS messages, simply turn off the notifications in the notification center. You will then receive text notifications again.
Viewing Multi-Day Requests
To view a multi-day request, first tap to open it. At the top of the screen, you’ll see the date range for the request. Tap the right arrow to see the day-by-day view.
