How to Create Shift Templates in the Weekly View

Created by Aimee Bridges, Modified on Tue, 06 Sep 2022 at 04:18 PM by Jacobus van Zyl

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. 

 

Considerations

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:

  • Click the day on which you would like to schedule a specific worker
  •  Select Create New Shift
  • Add position and time, and optionally add instructions for the shift
  •  Select the Also save as shift template box at the bottom of the window
  • Select Save
