The Duplicate Shifts tool can be used to copy shifts that have the same shift structure (i.e. the same days of the week and the same start / end times). For example if in one department "Facilities" you have two jobs with the same shift structure "Front Desk" and "Weight Room Attendants" you could create the "Front Desk" shifts, then duplicate the shifts, and retitle them "Weight Room Attendants." Similarly if you have two departments with the same shift structure like "Guest Service Associates" and "Guest Service Supervisors" you could create the "Guest Service Associates" shifts and duplicate them into the "Guest Service Supervisors" department. Here is how the Duplicate Shifts tool works.
How to Duplicate Shifts in the Same or another Department:
In the screen shot below you can see that the "Front Desk" shifts have been created; the shifts occur in three hour blocks of time from opening at 11 am until close at 11 pm and the shifts exists Monday thru Friday. If the job of "Weight Room Attendant" has the same exact shift structure you can simply duplicate these into the same position and rename them or duplicate into another position with the same shift template needs. Simply choose the position to copy to.
To create the "Weight Room Attendant" shifts by duplication click on the duplicate link in the row of the shift you want to duplicate. Clicking this link will load the following menu:
By default the"Select Positon" option appears. Simply choose the appropriate positon to copy to. You may have similar shift blocks with different names. In this case simply rename the title before you copy/Duplicate. After clicking the "Duplicate Shift" button the shift will be added as an inactive shift. To use this template simply toggle the empty box under "Status" to make template active.
To complete the process just duplicate the remaining three shifts and make them active once complete your "Create / Manage Shifts"
- If you are duplicating shifts that use "Shift Based" availability the availability will be copied to the duplicated shift.
