To request a swap with another Participant, first enter your SignUp using your personal SignUp link found in your confirmation or reminder email from firstname.lastname@example.org. (Can't find it? Click Find My SignUp in the menu at SignUp.com to get new links sent to you.)
Once on the SignUp page, click the My Spots button to the right of the assignment you want to swap and select the Swap option.
Then review other participant's commitments and choose which spots you are available to swap. Just click on the Swap tab and the spot will be added to your list of requested people to swap with at the top of the page. You can select any number of potential spots/participants to request a swap with.
Then, click Next and enter a message to send to potential people to swap with.
An email swap request will be sent out to everyone on the list. If the recipient chooses Click Here in the email, s/he is taken to a screen to accept the swap request. If another participant tries to accept the swap after it has been confirmed by someone else, they will see a message saying "Swap is no longer available, thanks for trying!"
