Step 3 - Getting around Swag

From the home page you can view the amount of your last payslip and when your last pay was received.  

In Swag you can:

  • View previous and upcoming shifts
  • Log and view leave requests
  • View your personal payroll details
  • Log and view expenses
  • View you leave requests

Note: If you log out of the app, you will be prompted to enter your email, password and pin number to access the app. If you leave the app and come back later, you will only be prompted to enter your pin number.
