What is an unassigned shift

  • An unassigned shift is a roster shift that currently isn't assigned to an employee.
  • An unassigned shift can exist on a roster template, as well as a published or unpublished roster

When would you use an unassigned shift

  • An unassigned shift can be used on a Roster Template if the shift is covered by different employees each week
  • An unassigned shift might occur on a Published Roster if the shift needs to be covered but the manager was unable to find an employee to work the shift. Depending on your organisation settings, an employee may offer to work an unassigned (or 'Open') shift
