Make changes to rotation in the future?

Daelynn Moyer October 29, 2021

One of the things I'm able to do in PagerDuty is to edit rotations, and to define an effective date for that edit, so that if, for example, I want to add a user to the rotation, but have that addition be effective as of a certain date, I could set that date to be in the future. That doesn't seem to be an option in OpsGenie. Is there a workaround for this? Or am I just not understanding the UI?

Hi @Daelynn Moyer !


There isn't a way to add a user to an existing rotation starting sometime in the future. Once you edit a rotation and add a user to the participants list, that user becomes part of the rotation.


What you can do, is set-up a new rotation with that additional user, and set the Start Date/Time for that rotation to a future date. And then set the End Date/Time of the existing rotation so that the rotation will end when the new one starts.

Existing Rotation ends on December 1st:


New Rotation starts when existing rotation ends, i.e. December 1st:



Hope that helps!

Ah, yes! That's just what I needed. Thanks for the tip!
