To be able to use the shift scheduler you must first set up the following:

  • Office locations

  • Work Timings

The first step in creating your schedules is defining one or more Work Center/s.

A work center is a group of shift employees rotating between one or more shift timings and office locations, and managed by a Scheduler (who is responsible for ensuring the offices are adequately staffed with the right employees for all the shifts).

To build a Work Center follow the below steps:

Step 1: Under Configuration, click on Attendance, and expand Work Timings. Edit the default settings and continue to Add New timings as needed

Step 3: Create your Work Centers under Configuration > Attendance > Expand Work Centers and click on Add New

Fill in the details of your new Work Center by selecting an employee who will be responsible for -

  • Scheduling shifts for this group

  • Including the relevant shift timings for this group

  • Including all the offices you want to staff in this group


  • You cannot assign the same office location to multiple Work Centers

  • Employees you wish to assign as schedulers/owners of a particular Work Center, must be assigned the Shift Scheduler permission as highlighted above. Click here to learn more about roles and permissions.

  • If all your employees will be managed by the same Scheduler, you can create just one work center with all your shift employees and all office locations. 

Step 4: Select the shift employees who belong to this work center by clicking on the employee name or using the search bar

You can make edits to your work centers by clicking on the edit button as shown below
