  • Choose a Day or the Week Tab to see all of the shifts you want 
  • Sort the display by any column by clicking the title - Ex. if setting night shifts, you might want to sort by Time

To test the Category and view the shifts

From any Schedule View: 
  • In the Category dropdown, choose your new category name 
  • (Be sure the Positions dropdown is set to All Positions
  • The Schedule View will now include only the shifts in that Category
  • You can also filter on a position to see only shifts that are in both that Category and that Position

Note: Changing an existing shift to be in a Category DOES NOT change the times or any items set in the category defaults. Category defaults are only used when Adding New Shifts.
