The ability to set recurring shifts greatly speeds up the scheduling process.

Things to know before you begin:

  1. You can navigate the schedule to different dates by clicking the arrows found at top mid of the app.

  2. You can use the filters to set the filters and narrow down the view of the shifts.

  3. It is optional to create a recurring shift and have them repeated for the 'n' number of times in future.

  4. Shift breaks will be auto-assigned to the shift under 'Manage Breaks' tab, if settings are enabled against location-based break rule.

  5. Under 'Repeat Until'; you must choose the date when the shift will stop repeating.

  6. 'Custom cycle' cannot be set as a frequency under "Repeat Options" from mobile application.
