Shift type categories

Updated by Daniel Sjögren

You can use shift type categories to group different type of shift types into one category. There are two different ways to create new shift type categories:

Adding a shift type category

To add a new category click the green Add button, give the category a name, and click Save.

Creating shift type categories in Account settings vs Group settings

If a new category is created under Account settings > Shift type categories, it will become shared and can be seen/used by all units of your organization.

If a new category is created under Group settings > Shift type categories, it will become local and can only be seen/used by the unit it is created on.

General information

  • You can search the list of shift type categories by typing something in the search field at the top of the page.
  • You can edit the name of a category by clicking edit on the right-hand side.
  • You can delete a category by clicking delete on the right-hand side (note that it's only possible to delete a shift type category that isn't used).
  • If the list contains more than 100 items it will split into several pages. Navigate between the pages by clicking the arrows in the top right corner.
  • Shift type categories will only be visible under group settings when you are on a group that is a unit (not on district or section).
