BakeSw@p makes it easy to take a break or ‘hiatus’

What is a hiatus?
A period of time during which a circle will not BakeSw@p [Circle hiatus] or a member won’t participate in a circle’s BakeSw@p [Personal hiatus].

So what happens to your circle when you go on holidays or just want to take a break from BakeSw@pping?  BakeSw@p makes it easy by enabling you to place a circle into hiatus, if everyone wants to take a break, or set up a personal hiatus that applies only to you.

For a step-by-step guide to creating a circle go to YouTube.com/c/BakeSwap

Circle Hiatus

  • What is it: a period of time when a BakeSw@p circle will be temporarily inactive.
  • How does it work: You won’t get any circle alerts from that circle during the hiatus period. They will restart automatically in time for your first sw@p after the hiatus period ends.
  • When and how is it set: You don’t have to nominate a hiatus period – it’s entirely optional. If you would like to set a hiatus period it can be set by the circle creator during the process of creating a circle or changed by any member of an active circle.
  • How do you set it: Its super easy - you just need to put in two dates:
  • your last swap BEFORE the hiatus period starts. 
  • your first swap AFTER the hiatus period ends
BakeSw@p will do the rest!
  • Can it be changed: Yes.  Set a change request in motion for your circle by going to MY BAKESW@P > My Circles and click EDIT CIRCLE for the appropriate circle.

What happens next?

When you click EDIT CIRCLE a box will appear with a number of options for you to choose from.  Tick the boxes that apply (you can select as many as you like) and provide some details in the text box at the bottom and click SEND.  BakeSw@p will send an email to all the members of your circle letting them know about your proposed changes and asking them to respond YES or NO. Changes to your circle can only be made if enough members agree to them.  Members have seven days to respond to the change request.

If enough members agree to the changes (i.e. Change Quorum is achieved) then the member that proposed the changes can go ahead and make those changes to the Circle details as agreed by the members of that circle. BakeSw@p will send you an email letting you know if Change Quorum has been achieved and, if so, how to make the changes to your circle.  You’ll receive this email within 7-days or sooner if quorum is achieved.


Personal Hiatus

  • What is it: a period of time when a BakeSw@p subscriber won’t participate in any BakeSw@p events
  • How does it work: You won’t get any circle alerts (from any of your circles) during the hiatus period. They will restart automatically after the hiatus period ends.
  • When and how is it set: If you would like to set a hiatus period go to MY BAKESW@P > User Settings and tick the box. To end the hiatus either set an end date or untick the box.
  • Can it be changed: You can turn this on or off at any time.


Here are some commonly asked questions about Hiatus


Do I have to set a hiatus period when I create my circle?
You don’t have to nominate a hiatus period – it’s entirely optional. 

Do I have to set a hiatus period every time I want to take a break?
No. You don’t have to nominate a hiatus period.  You can simply choose not to participate in any Sw@p by responding NO to the first “Are you BakeSw@pping?” alert. No explanation required.  You won’t receive any more alerts for that round but will automatically be included in the next one. A hiatus period works well if you need to take an extended break, for example, over the Christmas holidays or if you are going overseas for a few weeks.

How far in advance can I set up my hiatus period?
You can set it as far in advance as you’d like to as long as you set a date at least 14-days before the last swap (to allow enough time to cancel alerts) or at least 14-days before the first swap back (to allow enough time to restart alerts so you receive them all).

What’s the “Last Sw@p before the hiatus”?
This is the date of your last Sw@p BEFORE the hiatus period starts. It must be at least 14 days from the date you select. This is to allow enough time to cancel your circle alerts relating to the first cancelled BakeSw@p during the hiatus period.

What’s the “First Sw@p after the hiatus”?
This is the date of your first Sw@p AFTER the hiatus period ends. You can restart your BakeSw@p at any time as long as there’s at least 14 days from the date you select before that first Sw@p. This is to allow enough time to receive your circle alerts.

Can I put all my circles into hiatus at once?
No. A hiatus is specific to a circle. You could put each circle into hiatus individually.  Or, if you want to take a break from all your circles, you might like to set up a Personal hiatus instead.
