Shift schedule


The plugin was basically designed to create a shift schedule for nurses, but can be used anywhere where employees work multiple shifts. The plugin can be configured for holidays, holiday holidays reorganizations, and it also handles employee leave.

In the plugin settings you can set any number of shift types to which you can assign colors and letters. This is how it appears in the generated calendar. You can set whether to aggregate one type per employee (i.e., per row) and/or per column (i.e., per day).

The completed shift schedule can be inserted on the user side with the help of [shift-schedule] shortcode, or it can be scrolled and reviewed on the administrator page. It is also possible to display a print image on the administrator page.
