Configure Work Rest: Shifts

Shifts are templates that allow you to fill a crew member's schedule in quickly with the correct distribution of working, resting, on watch and/or traveling time. Shifts are organized into groups called shift types which can be assigned to specific assets to ensure that those assets see only the shift types that apply to them.

To add shift types and shifts

  1. On the Personnel > Schedule > Work Rest tab, click the Settings button to display the Settings window.
  2. From the menu bar on the left, click Shifts.
  3. Click MANAGE SHIFTS.
  4. Click New Shift Type to display the New Shift Type window.

  5. In the Shift Type Name field, enter a name for the shift type, example "Underway" or "Tied Up."
  6. To add a shift, do the following:
    1. Under Shifts, click ADD SHIFT and use the Shift Name field to enter a name for the shift.
    2. Under Shift Times, click ADD TIME as many times as necessary to add the time periods for the shift.
    3. For each time period, enter the start and end time until 24 hours have been assigned.
  7. (Optional) Repeat step 6 to add additional shifts.
  8. Click Save to display the Shifts table.
  9. In the Shifts table, select a work type for each time period then click Save.

NoteTo edit or delete an existing shift type, click the kebab icon (three dots) to the left of its name in the table, then select Edit or Delete. Be careful: selecting Delete will immediately delete the shift type and all related shifts.

  3. (Optional) Click the Filter button to display the Schedule Filters window. Select the specific divisions and assets by which you want to filter the displayed list of assets, then click Apply.
  4. (Optional) Select the UNASSIGNED check box to display only those assets that don't yet have an assigned shift type.

    • To assign assets one at a time, to the right of each asset's name, select the check box that represents the shift type you want to assign.
