Saving as Draft: allows you to create a full draft schedule and publish it upon confirmation

This approach is useful if you have multiple work centers and employees as it saves you time selecting shift timings and employees simultaneously.

3. Select (1) the work center and (2) the shift timing you would like to assign, and mass select employees by clicking on the check mark on each cell for all employees who will be scheduled that particular shift for that week

4. Continue to mass select employees for other shift timings for all your work centers as needed. Each shift is colour coded. You can un-assign a shift by clicking on the "x" icon. Click on Save Shifts when complete.

5. All your employee shifts will be scheduled in draft stage, click on Publish Shift to notify your employees of their scheduled shifts for the week
