Exact details of how Self Assign works

I self-assigned two shops (my limit is 2) and completed one of them, the next one is tomorrow. Does the limit mean that I can only have two active shops in my self-assign queue, waiting to be completed? Or does this mean I can self assign 2 shops per month/week, or that I have to wait until my self-assign limit is 3 before I self-assign for a third time?

The self-assigned limit applies to the number of shops you can have in your Assigned Shops at any given moment, which you have self-assigned.


However, this limit only applies for self-assigning - you can always request an unlimited number of them, and schedulers can approve an unlimited number of requests. This means, that you can self-assign 2 shops right now, proceed to request another 100 shops within 10 minutes, and those requests can all be approved within a day, so you'd have 102 shops assigned to you,


I hope this helps!

I actually have a quick question for those of you who have more experience here. Right now I am able to self assign 4 at a time. My main reputation level is 3. It took me forever to get here and I'm proud of it lol! For those of you who have a reputation rank/badge higher than 3, what self assign limit do they allow you to go up to as you progress? I'm so curious to see how much more I can do in the future. Thank you!

Those numbers can change as the system is tweaked and improved, but currently, on your next level it should be 5 shops, and then 7 shops on level 5.

But, after that it gets really interesting. I can't share the exact numbers, but at level 6 it's over a dozen. And then dozens after that. :)


I hope you get there soon! :)

Awesome! I can't wait! However I am realizing it takes a lot longer to reach 100% on level 3 than it did on level 2 lol! I can only imagine how many shops I'll have to complete to get to those higher levels. I love the challenge though!

I have a self assign limit of three. I have completed these, but they have not yet been approved. Does that mean I cannot self assign new jobs until the current self assigns have been approved. Thanks

Once you have submitted the shops, I believe you should be able to self-assign more - even while you wait for them to be approved.

Yes as soon as you submit your shops, you can self assign new ones as long as you have no other shops assigned to you currently or aren't at your limit.


I'm trying so hard to get to level 4 but every now and again I lose points which some are completely out oof my control which is so frustrating. I was deducted points for a school shop because on my assigned date to call, the school was closed for the holidays and so I emailed the MSP, asked about if I should wait til the new year and immediately my shop was unassigned, and points were deducted! I thought it was a mistake, so I emailed him and asked but he said no it wasn't a mistake. I was really shocked and disappointed.

Thanks for the responses. One more question. Do all shops have the ability to be self assigned. If not, how would I know?

Not all can be self-assigned. Each MSC makes the decision as to whether or not to allow self-assign on each shop. You find out when you attempt to self-assign and can't - unless the MSC specifically states it in their overview of the shop - which they usually do.
