Using Open Shifts alongside the Copy Custom Range tool, you can build a repeating template for your rota.

This method lets you establish your rota requirements and then drag and drop shifts to staff on a week-by-week basis.

It's ideal if you know the shifts you'll need on each day, but the employees working the shifts vary.

  1. Build your pattern into Open Shifts. If your pattern repeats each week, build the first week. If it repeats every three weeks, build the first three weeks.
  2. Use Copy Custom Range to copy the pattern into future weeks/months.
  3. When it comes to planning your rota each week, drag shifts from Open Shifts onto the Employee you'd like to allocate to work that shift. Alternatively, publish the Open Shifts and allow your staff to claim the shifts they'd like to work.
