This is a legacy feature that is no longer available for customers who signed up for Tymeshift after July 27th, 2022. The functionality in this feature is now available in Schedules.
Once you set up your Schedule , you can retroactively edit or revise it even when it's published. Just don't forget to publish it again once your changes are made!
Important: until you hit the publish button (on the top right corner of your screen), the new Schedule won’t be visible to your agents. Once you publish the Schedule, the shift will change colors from red to green. This feature allows you to double-check that your schedule is fully optimized before you share it with your team.

To access this feature, simply follow the steps below:

When you right-click on an empty space in your schedule, you will see the Add Shift button. If you click on it, you can add a shift for that agent. In addition, you can go to Add Shift just by clicking on the button in the upper right corner of your Schedule Screen.
After you click on the Edit button, you will be taken into the Shift Template where you can tweak the start/end time of your shift, edit the Intraday Schedule, or delete that particular shift.
You can also edit the team Schedule by simply dragging and dropping Unassigned Shifts or already assigned shifts to any other agent. Or you can duplicate the selected shift by clicking on it, holding Control key (CTRL on Windows OS) and dragging it to another agent or day.
After you click on the Edit Repeat button, you will be taken into the Shift Template where you can edit or delete that particular Repeating Shift.
Note: if you edit a Repeating Shift, once you save the changes it will apply them to all relevant days you've set in the Repeating Shift settings including the ones you previously modified.
After you click on the Add Time Off button, you will be able to add Time Off for your agents for the scheduled shift. You can add Time Off for that entire shift or for a partial shift on that day.
After you click on the Delete button, you will be able to delete a scheduled shift (all future Repeating Shifts & all Repeating Shifts including past shifts). In order to do so, please follow these steps:
