How to assign staff to event shifts

Add staff to your event shifts after you collect their hourly availability.

SubItUp offers two methods of collecting availability and assigning employees to event shifts that are created in the event module - hourly-based and survey-based availability. When you create events, you can only use one of these methods to collect availability and assign staff and cannot use a mix of both.

This article applies to the hourly-based availability method. 

To manually assign an employee to an event shift:

How to schedule for an event
