Shift Pattern Rotations

A Shift Pattern Rotation consists of the Rotation Description being linked to the Shift Patterns as these are the patterns which comprise the rotation.

How it works:

  1. A Shift Pattern is selected to be linked to the Rotation.
  2. A sequence number is assigned to the pattern. e.g. A Rotation may have 3 Shift Patterns linked to it, but the order of the patterns is important. The sequence number indicates which pattern the employee works on in the correct order. The first pattern in the sequence should be numbered one(1) and then the subsequent or second pattern that the employee will work should be numbered two (2), etc. The net effect is that the patterns are linked in a loop, creating a seamless rotation pattern on which the employees can now be scheduled.
  3. Steps 1 and 2 are repeated until all the patterns are linked to create the rotation.

This linkage must be completed prior to employees being scheduled on the shift pattern.

Company: Select the Company.

Shift Pattern Rotation Code and Description:  Select the Shift Pattern Rotation Code and Description.

Shift Pattern Code and Description: Select the Shift Pattern. When this is selected, the saved pattern is displayed in the week days shown below.

Shift Pattern Sequence: Enter a number to assign the sequence number to the pattern. e.g. 1, 2,3, etc.


Save the record and repeat to link additional shift patterns and rotations.
