Shift templates streamline the process of scheduling shifts that have a consistent start time and end time. Instead of manually entering shift details (position, start time, end time, instructions) for each shift, shift templates allow you to schedule staff in just a few clicks.
While you can create as many templates as you would like, you can not edit existing templates. If you need to make a modification to a template, you can delete the template and create a new one that meets the desired specifications.
How To Create a Shift Template
As you are creating a new shift for a worker, you can also easily create a template based on that shift through the following steps:

(2) Select Create New Shift
