About the Shifts Screen
The Shifts screen displays in list form the schedule of Shifts as well as any Unavailable Periods. The information displayed is filtered in accordance with the values set within the Filter Area.
The Shifts screen also allows for Shifts to be turned on and off, and well as the creation of new Shifts from a Shift Pattern or as one-off events.
Changes made within the Shifts screen are automatically and immediately synchronised with the Factory Client application.
A Shift defines the Available Period to which Activities can be assigned both on the Factory Client application and the Production Scheduler application. Shifts can either be of type Standard, Custom or Adjusted. Standard Shifts are created from the Shift Pattern, whereas Custom Shifts are created on a one-off basis to extend the Available Period where necessary.
