You are able to assign a title or event name either to a whole day or to a certain period of time. The title or name can be anything and is designed to tell staff what is happening during a shift. Any shift that starts after the event start time will be part of that event so ensure events start before the first person is scheduled to start work.
This is enabled per venue under the Shift Configuration settings tab in the Manage Venues section and will display a box at the top of the shift grid page to enable the title to be entered.
You can also set this information in bulk for the whole month at the same time. See Dashboard > Staff > Manage Staff Events.
When shift events are added you can set up a new trigger.
Shift Events: Allow multiple shifts at the same time in the same space
There is also the option, under the venue settings page under ‘Events’ that allows for multiple events to be set at the same time. You can then also choose which event to assign someone to.
To use this you will first need to enable multiple events. To do this first go to Venues > Manage Venues > Edit Venues. Select your chosen venue and then go to the Shift Configuration tab.
Formatting Options for Shift Events
You also have the option here to have multiple events to be set at the same time. You can then also choose which event to assign someone to. To do this you need to choose a link type, this means you can decide whether to have a direct link to shift where each shift is linked directly to an event.
Choose ‘Direct Link’, if you want the shift to be linked directly to an event.
Then to create an event you need to select the venue you are wanting to plan your events for in the top right corner. Then go to Shifts > Shift settings > Additional Shift/Day details. You can then create a new event by adding a title to a specific day. From there you should be able to schedule overlapping events where a staff member’s shift might start during one event and then finish in another.
