FAQ – How do I set a time interval between shifts?

Across your organization, or within an individual location, the need may exist to manage time gaps between shifts when employees cannot be scheduled. This could be due to government rest requirements, or union labor regulations, or internal cost control measures …or whatever.

Shift Buffering, creating intervals between consecutive shifts, can be done directly from your Settings tab in a few clicks. The ability to enable and define minimum time intervals between shifts exists on a location by location basis. Shift Buffering automatically ensures all Scheduling Managers across various jurisdictions are in compliance with their governing regulations at all times. A mere 7 clicks and you will alleviate all the time and effort previously needed to manually manage time intervals between employee shifts.

Scheduling Managers, District Managers, and Executive level users are able to enable shift buffering at locations they are responsible for.
