Adding Single Shifts (Grid and Gantt Views)

Need to add just one more shift to the schedule? This article will help you add a single shift, in both the Planner views.

Adding a Shift in the Grid View

1) While in the Gantt view, locate the team member you want to add a shift for. You can use the "Find" search bar in the top left to view a single user. You can also create a new shift as "Unassigned" at the bottom.

In the example below, we will add a shift for Phil on Tuesday, the 14th.

4) When you're all set, click "Create"

5) Your team member will now have an unpublished (yellow) shift.

2) Use your mouse to click and drag a new shift on the date you need a shift. In the example below, I started my mouse on 9:00AM on the 15th. I clicked and dragged over to 5:00PM, and then released my click. This gave me a new 9:00-5:00 on the 15th!

Important: When creating a new shift in this way, the shift will NOT have a team associated with the shift. On the left hand side of your screen, click "No Team" and use the dropdown to add a team to the shift.
