This article relates to Classic.

This view is used to edit texts that are used throughout the application, e.g. information provided to staff when they book shifts that have to be approved by a manager. To edit a text, select the corresponding radio button in the menu on the left and make the change in the text box to the right, then click Save.

Rules and regulations

The Rules and regulations text is displayed when the user clicks on the corresponding link in the page footer, which is visible in both the staff and admin portals. It is possible to format the text and link to external websites.
