Delete shifts

Modified on Tue, 23 Aug 2022 at 05:23 PM

In day-to-day shift planning it is very common that plans can change. As a shift planner, you need to continue to adapt to those changes and keep your employees updated. There can be many scenarios under which you need to delete a published shift - you no longer need that shift, or you decided to have someone else do the job, or your employee is taking a day off and you dont need a replacement. 

Therefore, you can delete both published and unpublished shifts by clicking on the bin icon

You will then be asked again if you would like to delete the shift. Additionally, you can decide whether you would like to notify your employee about the change.

When you delete an open and thus unpublished shift, it simply vanishes from your shiftplan, as it has not been accounted for in your capacity planning. But when you delete a published shift:

  • The shift is removed from your shiftplan.
  • The capacity data of the associated employee is updated.
  • If you decided to notify, then the employee gets notified that they have been unassigned from a shift.

The magic here doesn't happen just because you can delete a published shift, but because you can keep your employees informed almost immediately. For every change you make to planned and published shifts, your employees are totally in the loop. This allows you to be more agile and increase employee satisfaction - by showing them that you care.
