To create shifts on the schedule, first create a Staff Profile under the “Staff” tab. See setting up staff for tips.
- Go to the Schedule Tab
- Select the staff member you’d like to add shifts for on the staff menu on the left side
Select the Week view at the bottom to see the whole week
Depress the “Shifts” button at the top right hand of the schedule
- Choose the day you want to create a shift for, and click and drag an approximate shift. Don’t worry about being exact because an Edit box will open as soon as you let go.
- Set the boundaries of the shift - Remember to add extra time to the end of your shift if you’re using a “buffer” between appointments. For example, if you’re booking a 60 minute appointment, but have the appointment set to 75 minutes, you would want to end your shift 15 minutes later to accommodate this 15 minute buffer at the end of your appointment.
- Repeat for as long as you like. Remember to select an end date with the date picker to activate the repeat function. You can always delete or change a single shift later on without affecting the entire series.
If you want to have a set break, you can create multiple shifts in a day. You can also create multiple shifts to control which spots show as available to online booking.
