Frontline managers can now post an open shift to help fill shifts that are scheduled unexpectedly. Open shifts are posted to your team for anyone to offer cover on web or mobile. Managers can then approve someone to work the shift. To create open shifts, managers must have group admin or moderator permissions.

Go from a photo or video to the riginal post
Previously, if you were viewing a photo or video from a post, the only way to return to the post was with the back button. This didn't work if you reached the photo or video from a link. We’ve added a ‘View post’ link to media that belongs to a post, so you can easily navigate to the post itself.
