- Filter the View/Printout

All Schedule Views and the Helper List can be filtered to display only certain Positions, groups of Positions (locations), Categories, groups of Categories, etc.

NOTE: if you find that shifts are missing, or not all of your shifts are being displayed, be sure your Positions and Category dropdowns are set to "All Positions" and "All Categories."

Filtering the schedule view not only changes the display and printout, but also changes what is affected when you perform functions such as Import, AutoFill, Clear/Delete, Save Template, etc.

Filtering is done using the dropdown menu boxes in the upper right of the Schedule view pages and Helper List.

Filter category and positions

  • Categories - use of categories is optional - if you have created Categories and set shifts to be in those categories, you can choose any one or group of categories to be displayed. If you choose a Category and then a Position, the view will be limited to only those shifts in both that Category and that Position. 
  • Positions - choose which Position you want to be displayed on the screen or Select/Group Positions to show groups of Positions. 
  • Include - this dropdown appears on the Sortable List and Multi-Shift Edit Views and allows you to show 
    • All Shifts 
    • only Unassigned Shifts 
    • only AutoFilled Shifts 
    • only Preplaced Shifts (ex. "Pinned Helpers")

To filter a Schedule View:
From any Schedule View: 

  • In the Positions and/or Category dropdown, choose the Position/Category that you want to display
filter schedule view

  • The view will change to only include those shifts (the dropdown will be highlighted to remind you that you are filtered).
  • Note that the By Helper view is unique - as it will show all shifts for those helpers who can help for that position (including shifts for other positions to aid in the drag/drop of shifts function).

You also can use the Search button on any weekly Schedule View - which allows you to set different options and then show a list of shifts that match.
