Navigating the Calendar Tab

A busy schedule can be challenging to manage when you have lots of shifts, meetings, and team members to juggle. But a quick visual scan of your Calendar tab highlights just the elements you need. Crew’s Schedule, Shift, and Meeting features keep your team running smoothly; the Calendar tab is your key to running those features just as smoothly.

Note Shift Manager, Shift Cover, and Meetings must be added in the Admin tab to initiate those features. Additionally, Shift Manager and Shift Cover must be toggled on through the Admin tab under “Crew Schedule,” or from the Settings wheel at the top of the Calendar tab. Thereafter those features can also be managed via the Admin tab or the Calendar Settings wheel. If you don’t see the features you’re looking for, make sure they have been added and toggled on.

See Who’s Working, and When

Color coding, large text, and team photos in all the Calendar views can be read at a glance, allowing you to easily see who is working, and when.

Know When Action Is Needed

The Calendar tab makes it clear when Admins need to take action on pending items—such as cover approvals and time-off requests—ensuring that work gets done faster and nothing is lost in the shuffle.
