How can I create a new shift on the iCarol shift calender?
A. How to Create a Shift:
- Click on ‘Shifts’.
- Click on ‘Add a new Shift’ at the bottom of screen
- Enter the shift detail in the yellow information box. This shift happens – (default is ‘only once’) Shift Name – Name, Number or combination Date of first shift – (select a date) Date of last shift – for ongoing shift, select box ‘no end date’ Start time – select hours, minutes, am/pm Leave checkmark in ‘include in shifts and hours worked’ (for statistics report) Workers needed – total # of people on this shift Type of Shift – Normal or On Call Worker Person Assigned – Open Shift color – whatever you like e.g. black for normal, red for on-call Only on weekdays (Mon – Fri shifts) Only on weekends (Sat, Sun shifts)
- Click on Add shift(s)
NOTE 1: ‘Once only’ shifts do NOT display unless you uncheck the box ‘Hide the Only once Shifts’.
NOTE 2: This is currently the only way that you can create a repeating PAID shift. The ‘paid’ aspect will apply to all occurrences of the shift.
