Once the working areas have been set, the next step is to create working times/shifts in the duty rota.
There are two different types of shifts:
1. Create individual working times/shift
Click on the "Calendar" symbol on the left-hand side in the navigation → then click on an empty field in the weekly view on the right-hand side. This should be the day on which you want to create the working time or shift
Now the window in which you can specify the shift will open:
you select the working area, enter the minimum amount of employees for this shift, and specify the date and the start/end of the working time
subsequently confirm with "Save"
The entire process is shown here again:
2. Create recurring working times/shift
A recurrence is a normal shift that repeats itself in a cycle that you specify.
A recurrence can be set as follows:
Click on the "Calendar" symbol on the left-hand side in the navigation → then click on the white gear icon in an existing shift to allow you to edit it; or directly create a recurrence in a newly set shift. → Click on "Set recurrence" in the shift.
You can define in which cycle the recurrence should take place (daily, weekly, monthly, annually) under "Rule".
The span between the shifts is established when you set the intervals.
You state when the recurrence should start by specifying the date.
With the selection of weekdays, you can define on which days the recurrence should be repeated (with the period "Weekly").
To have the shift or working time run indefinitely, leave the tick placed on "Never". Otherwise, you can also specify an end date or an end after x recurrences.
NOTE: Your calendar will only show you the shifts up until one year in the future. However, the scheduling for weeks in the far future also runs in the background.
The repetition for the selected shift can be saved by clicking on "Create".
Once you have pressed "Save", the entire recurrence is now set and the system logs the specified sequence. This may take a moment.
