A Schedule is a collection of Shifts within a Team. Schedules are created and filled with Shifts from a Template. They can be modified manually (by adding or subtracting Shifts). Schedules start out ‘unpublished’, which means that the Shifts are NOT viewable on the Team Calendar, and changes to the Schedule are not logged.
An Administrator can use our MESH Autoscheduler engine to automatically assign Members to Shifts, which saves time and hassle. They can also assign Members to Shifts manually in the Schedule either before or after Autoscheduling.
When an Administrator publishes a Schedule, its Shifts become visible to all Team Members on the Team Calendar. After this point, any changes to the Shifts are logged, and notifications are sent out about Shift changes.
