Guidance from the Commodore on the use of Dutyman:
When filling any gaps remaining after most club members have volunteered for duties on dates of their choice, it is inevitable some individuals will find they are rostered on days for which they already have commitments. When this occurs, it is important to re-allocate duties reliably while avoiding an unmanageable administrative burden on the volunteers who look after the roster.
The Dutyman program used to maintain our duty roster has a user-friendly interface for requesting swaps and this should be used in the first instance. Simply log into Dutyman (directly or via our website), click on the 'Request a duty swap' link, and follow the instructions.
Please only contact the Dutyman administrator to swap duties in the following circumstances:
- You have requested a duty swap through Dutyman but you are unable to swap because you are not free on any of the available dates.
- You would like to swap for a duty that has not yet been allocated (it is not possible to swap with a 'blank' duty through Dutyman).
- You would like to be removed from an allocated duty and for a specific reason feel unable to undertake a replacement.
