After you have created either flexi or fixed shifts, you can now assign them to either employees individually, or to entire Departments at one time.
To assign a shift to an entire department, go to Company Setup>Time>Schedules>Shift Per Department.
Click the Add Shift Per Department button. The Add Shift Per Department form will pop up.
Under Department Name, you can select the particular department you want to assign the shift to. All of the Departments you have created under Company Setup>Organizational Structure>Departments can be selected here.
For each day of the week, you can select a shift that the Department will be assigned to for that particular day.
Next, enter the Shift Valid From and Shift Valid To dates. You can leave these fields blank, but please note that any new shifts you assign to the department will be valid only if you either delete or edit the validity dates of the existing shift.
You will receive an error message if you try to add a new shift with validity dates that overlap with those of an existing shift.
Note: If you would like an employee to have a different shift from their Department, you can change it in their 201 File.
