TIPS ON HOW TO SET UP YOUR RECURRING SCHEDULE

 

You should add time blocks, representing the times your employees generally work on a typical basis.  If some employees do not have a set schedule, you should add just the employees that do have some regularity to their schedule.  If there is no regularity to who works, but the shifts are always the same, you should add open time blocks, which can be assigned later in the process in the current schedule, on a week by week basis.  If there is absolutely no regularity to either when your employees work or what times you need coverage, then you do not need to use the recurring schedule at all. The employees can not view the recurring schedule.  The recurring schedule is a manager tool, which allows you to default your current schedule on a weekly basis, thus giving you a "starter" schedule each time you begin the process of creating the schedule.  See Initializing from the current schedule.
