Have you ever wondered what the icons on each shift represent? Noticed them but haven’t quite figured out what they mean? Well, the shift icons are there to help you to quickly and easily get an overview of key shift information about all your published shifts. Our staff schedule maker allows you to schedule smarter by letting you work with the most up-to-date information in an easy-to-read format.
