A "Series of Shifts" otherwise known as "Recurring Shifts" are shifts that occur at the same time each week for 2 or more weeks in a row. For example this could mean you have been assigned a Monday afternoon shift that is from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm every Monday for the next 5 weeks. If your availability changes and you are no longer able to work this shift, SubItUp allows you to conveniently drop all of your recurring shifts at one time.
