An empty shift is a shift that is not assigned to any employee. You can assign an employee once you are sure who to assign the shift to and publish it to notify your employee(s).

Things to know before you begin:

  1. You may assign an employee later when you are sure who to be assigned it to.

  2. Once you have assigned the employee, you would have to re-publish the shift.

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

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