Save shifts as templates to schedule quickly and easily! 

Examples for using shift templates:

  • When working with daily or weekly shifts

  • When you need an additional layer of saved information that's not related to a job (i.e. a customer, a project, a work type, etc.)

  • When you have jobs that may have different hours than the default shift hours

  • Tasks or jobs are usually the same (i.e. cleaning, driving, installation, etc.), but the jobs are already used for clients information

What can be included in a shift template?

  • Start and end time

  • Time zone

  • Shift title

  • Job

  • Color 

  • Enable users to claim shift (set as and open shift)

  • Location

  • Shift notes

  • Attached files

What can't be included in a shift template and why?

  • Selected users - your weekly schedule is composed of dates of the week (X axis) and assigned users (Y axis). The shift template contains everything else as listed above, so all that's left to do is choose a user and the day of the week

  • Set as a repetitive shift - if the shift repeats itself, it doesn't make sense to be used as a template. But, you can drag and drop the template to a desired location in your schedule, and then edit the shift and set it as repetitive

How to create a new shift template?
