Tech Tip: How to Copy Schedules on the ShiftPlanning Module

tech tip

Humanity’s ShiftPlanning offers a solution to the repetitive and time-consuming task of manually creating employee schedules.

With the ability to effortlessly copy shifts from the past and apply them to future schedules, schedulers can save time from not needing to continually recreate a recurring or common schedule. They can now allocate their valuable time and energy towards more meaningful endeavors.

To use this function, you must be either a manager, supervisor, or scheduler. Currently it only works on the computer version of Humanity. There are two ways to copy a shift:

  • copy shift times only; and
  • copy shift times and employee assignments.

Step by step process
