Templates are a fantastic way to save time and avoid rostering mistakes weekly. Having the shifts already in place with the start and finish times takes the thinking out of the weekly task of creating a roster. 

We recommend adding the shifts for the full time / permanent part-time staff that work the same shifts every week, then you can add in an Unfilled Shift. An unfilled shift is a shift you have created without assigning a person to work it yet. You can create these shifts on the roster and even save them in your templates. These shifts must be filled or deleted before a roster can be published.

1. To add an unfilled shift to the roster, click on the Plus (+) button in the middle of the timeline to bring up the select position window.

2. Select the Position you want to create the shift for. Then instead of clicking select employee, click the Leave Unfilled button in the bottom left-hand corner of the popup window.

The shift will land on the timeline where you can adjust the hours as per usual.

3. Once you have created your roster, you can click the Save as Template button in the bottom right corner.

4. To fill the unfilled shift with staff members, simply click the ? in the middle of the shift, and it will take you to the select employee page. Click from the available staff showing up as available (green).

5. Once all the shifts are filled, you will be able to Publish the roster.

NOTE: If you have forgotten to fill a shift when you click to publish, the system will warn you and prompt you to fill the shift or delete it.
