Creating/Editing/Deleting Shifts to the Work Schedule

Creating A Scheduled Shift

Shifts may be scheduled by double-clicking on the appropriate start date in the calendar.  This will create a popup window, as illustrated below.

  1. To configure an individual shift, select the user from the dropdown menu
  2. Select a start and end time, and choose a recurrence rule. 
  3. For standalone shifts, leave the recurrence rule set to "Never" 
  4. click save. 
  5. This will add the shift to the chosen date or date range on the calendar. 

To configure a recurring shift, select the user from the dropdown menu, select a start and end time, and choose a recurrence rule.  Recurring shifts may be scheduled to recur on a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly basis.  Finally, a parameter must be set to indicate the end of the recurrence by choosing "Never", "After 'X' occurrence(s)", or "On (scheduled date)".  Due to certain software restrictions, "On (scheduled date)" is the only currently valid option.


Editing Scheduled Shifts

Scheduled shifts may not be edited after the scheduled date has elapsed.

Shifts may be edited by double-clicking on any existing task listed in the calendar.  In the case of a recurring task, this will created a popup window, as illustrated below.

When editing a recurring shift, a selection must be made in the popup window to indicate if the entire series of recurring shifts will be edited or if a single shift in the series will be edited. Selecting "edit the series" will bring up the recurring shift creation window.  Selecting "edit the occurrence" will bring up the simpler, single-occurrence window, as shown below.


When editing is complete, click "Save" to add or modify an item on the calendar, or cancel to prevent any changes.


Deleting Scheduled Shifts

Scheduled shifts may not be deleted after the scheduled date has elapsed.

Shifts may be deleted by clicking the "X" that is revealed on each calendar item as the mouse-pointer hovers over it.  

Once clicked, a popup window will be created.  For single-occurrence items, this window will ask for confirmation or cancellation regarding the chosen deletion.  Recurring items will create a popup that requires verification regarding the deletion of either the current occurrence or the entire series.

Clicking "Delete current occurrence" or "Delete the series" will immediately delete the chosen shift(s). No second confirmation will occur. To cancel this operation, click the "X" in the upper right hand corner of the "Delete Recurring Item" popup.
