What is the Default shift time

The Default Shift time is a rule that you can set, which will define the default Start time and End time for a shift.

Note: The Default Shift Time is set is 24-hour time (00:00-24:00). Setting an end time earlier than the start time will set the end time to the next day.

Why would you use the Default Shift Time

You would use the Default Shift Time to reduce the time is takes to add shifts for situations where a staff may work regular hours each day.

For example "John" may work from 11:00am - 3:00pm everyday. You can set his Default Shift Start time to 11:00am, and his Shift End time to 3:00pm, and when you create the shift in the timesheet, values will default to those set.
