Creating a new shift template:
Building a schedule can be a tedious task. Instead of creating the same shifts, again and again, create and use shift templates.
To create your shift templates, click the Options menu at the top right corner of your schedule, then click View shift templates. This will open a panel at the right side of the schedule page. From there, you will be able to see existing templates and create new ones.
Click Create shift template and fill in the details in the window that pops up to create your template.
Applying shift templates:
There are two ways to use the shift templates you have created.
- Choose one as you are creating a new shift
- Drag templates from the panel on the right and drop them into the schedule
From the new shift modal:
When you click the Create shift button or a blank spot on the schedule, you will see multiple tabs to select the shift format. Click the Template tab and you can choose any of your existing shift templates to populate the details of the shift. You will also have an opportunity to adjust any details (including adding a recurrence - which is not possible when dragging and dropping a template).
From the shift template panel:
From the shift template panel, you can drag and drop your templates to the schedule. Once dropped on the schedule, it will create an unpublished shift that you can adjust before publishing it. As mentioned above, this option will not provide you with the opportunity to add a recurrence.
