ShiftPlanning allows for shifts to be scheduled for any day and time as needed, including shift times that go overnight and rollover to the next morning. We recently improved how these overnight shifts visually appear on the schedules. Prior to this update, overnight shift timestamps were paired with visual blocks of shifts that cut off at midnight. Now, overnight shifts are indicated better visually. Enable this feature in your ‘Admin’ tab settings and have a look!
Click on the ‘Admin’ tab at the very top and click on ‘Account Settings’ on the left sidebar, as seen here:
Scroll to ‘Scheduling Settings’ and check off ‘Display overnight shifts in Scheduler’ to enable a better visual of scheduled overnight shifts. (Be sure to save and refresh!)
Once enabled, overnight shifts are indicated with brackets on the right of the shift, as seen here:
In ‘Employee’ and ‘Position’ schedule view, overnight shifts will expand when hovered over:
In ‘Visual’ schedule view, you can see the complete time block off of the overnight shift:
Being able to visually create a schedule with a drag and drop interface can help with your ability to quickly schedule your employees without any conflicts. With this improved visual of overnight shifts in the schedule, we hope that you can start scheduling easier and more accurately.
