To create shifts, once you log into your profile you will need to navigate to the ‘Rota’ tab located on the top left-hand side of the below screenshot.

Once you select the ‘Rota’ tab the following screen will appear:

Scroll down on the rota until you see the employee you would like to assign a shift to. Simply, navigate to the applicable date and hover over the '+' (plus) icon and you will see the option to 'Add Shift'.

As shown in the below example for ‘Rory Pharmacist’ on ‘Tue 28 Jun’:

Once you select the option to ‘Add Shift’ the following screen will display:

From here you can input information around the ‘Shift Details’, such as ‘Start Time’, ‘End Time’, ‘Unpaid Break’, ‘Labels’ & whether or not you wish to mark the shift as overtime.

If required you can navigate to the ‘Shift Notes’ tab to detail additional information on the shift, before selecting the green button to ‘Create & Publish’.

The shift will then populate within the Rota as displayed below:

From this screen you’ll be able to edit the ‘Shift Details’, alternatively you can utilise the tabs on the left-hand side of the above screenshot to also view the person assigned, shift notes, clock-in events & shift events.

Once you’re happy with the changes you’ve made, select the green ‘Save Changes’ button on the bottom left-hand corner of the above screenshot. The shift will then update on the Rota calendar.
