To view your own activity, select 'My Rota' or 'My Oncalls'. To see activity across your department, select 'Activities', 'Oncalls' or 'People'.

Throughout the app you can navigate forwards and backwards to view different days or weeks by either tapping the arrows at the top left and right of the screen, or by swiping the screen left and right. You can also tap on the date at the top of the screen to bring up a date picker that allows you to jump directly to any particular week.

Swiping downwards will manually refresh the page if you have an internet connection. The rota can still be accessed through cached data if you re-open the app without a connection, but the information may be out of date as a result.
