Rotate team members in an on-call shift to distribute team accountability and responsibility for handling issues.

Role required: Responder, Manager, or Administrator

Note: Only the responder who created the team, the manager of the team, or an administrator can edit rotation of a shift.

About this task

The Rotate Members field appears only when you have more than one primary member or more than one pair of primary and backup members in a shift. Rotation happens between sets of primary and backup members and not between the primary and backup member of the same set. Incident Response supports only daily or weekly rotation. By default, the rotation is set to be a weekly rotation.
