Tip Tuesday – Adding Time Blocks

Tip Tuesday – Adding Time Blocks

Welcome back to Tip Tuesday! This week we’re going to talk about the numerous ways to add time blocks to the current schedule. There are many ways to do this and they can be very efficient and helpful to know.

The Add Buttons

You can click on either of these two buttons to add new shifts from scratch:   .  This will bring up the normal window where you can add a certain shift. The only difference is the blue add button will automatically make the shift an open shift.

Copy Shifts

You can copy shifts to the current day or week from other days. You can even copy an entire week to the current week. All you have to do is select the time blocks you want to copy, go to the current week, and click on the day you want to place the time blocks. There will be a “copy selected time blocks to this day” option you need to select.

*If you select time blocks from multiple days, then copy them to one day, it will still keep the time blocks on multiple days. See the picture below:

Initialize from Recurring Schedule

This is one of the best ways to populate your schedule with time blocks. All you have to do is select the  button and it will automatically fill your current schedule with time blocks from the recurring schedule.

Initialize from Template

Initializing from a template is a great way to add multiple time blocks. You can have multiple templates and you can initialize from whichever templates you want. You can even initialize from multiple templates onto one schedule to get shifts from each template. This is really helpful for diversity within a company and great for each companies specific needs.
