You can save your most frequently used Shift into Templates that can be added with one single click. Follow this procedure.
A) Creating a new shift
Bring your mouse over a day in the line of an employee
A "New shift" gray box will appear
Click on that box
B) Shift informations
You can enter the general info directly in this window. Here are a few tips:
You can type on the keyboard the beginning and end time (orange rectangle)
To create a Time off, check the box on the top left
Add more than one break per day (no need to set a specific start time)
See the impact on availabilities of the employee at the bottom (blue rectangle)
To create a recurring shift, go in the "Recurrence" tab. More on that here.
You can add multiple breaks to a shift and you have different options. Mainly you can decide:
It's duration (first box on the left)
If it's paid (by default it's unpaid)
A specific start time (optional). If you check that option, a box on the right will appear to enter the start time.
C) Draft Mode and Publishing the Schedule
When you create a shift it will be in a draft first (surrounded by dotted lines). This means employees cannot see it. When you are ready to send it to employees, hit "Publish" (Orange arrow)
Employees will receive an instant notification when you publish
If you make changes, you will need to publish them to alert employees
Published shifts appear with solid lines around them (Blue arrow)
Protip: To minimize the number of notifications sent. We recommend that you publish only once your schedule is complete.
