Managing Sign-Up Lists : New User Interface
*Select Shiftboard sites are currently using the new interface. If you do not yet have access to the new interface, please continue to refer to our existing Support documentation.
As shifts are created, they can be designated to include a sign-up list. When the shifts are published, no one is assigned to the shift. Instead, a sign-up list is created, and people can add their name to the list for the shifts that they want to work. The manager can then use the sign-up list to influence how shifts get assigned. If you want to add yourself to a sign-up list, see Join Sign-Up List. This article covers managing sign-ups lists for managers and schedulers.
See Add Shifts for creating shifts for sign-up.
