It really is OK to say ‘No’ – but please say yes if you can
Dutyman allows a duty holder to request a swop with up to 20 other duties at any one time. An email is sent to those being requested to swop. The first one to say ‘yes’ gets the swop and the Duty Roster is immediately updated.
If you receive a swop request please reply even if you cannot do the swop – it’s better that the person requesting a swop knows the position. It really is Ok to say ‘no’ if you cannot do the swop as the member seeking the swop can then get on with requesting swops elsewhere.
However, if you can swop then please do so. We could all be in the position of needing to swop at some time.
DutyMan has email addresses for the vast majority of the 260 members on the Duty Roster. But there are a few who do not have email and we do know that some of the email addresses that we do have are incorrect (we are working on this). We also know that some members do not look at their email very frequently. So there are a few at present who cannot send or receive any swopping emails.
