Add Shift Labels to Schedule Days

Shift Labels can be used to add a label and color to each schedule day in Aladtec. The labels and colors can be customized to provide a sense of familiarity for members, e.g. Red/Gold/Black shifts, A/B/C shifts. With Shift Labels, whether on mobile or desktop, it’s easy to quickly glance at any of the schedule views to see which shift is working and identify upcoming shifts.

In Setup, multiple Shift Labels can be added, each with a short text label and color. Every Shift Label represents 24 hours and Shift Labels can be repeated to create a rotation. In the example below, Shift Labels are repeated to create a 48/96 rotation.

Create shift labels in setup

Once the labels and colors are added in Setup, Shift Labels are displayed in all desktop and mobile schedule views. Shift Labels make it easy to quickly see specific shift days, such as all the Gold shift days in the Monthly Calendar below.

Shift Labels on desktop

On mobile, while Shift Labels are automatically displayed on the Daily Summary, it is optional to include Shift Labels on My Schedule. To include Shift Labels on My Schedule, simply modify the View Options, as shown below.
