  • PDF

Article summary


The Engineer Shifts and Rota feature allows you to create different shifts for engineers and then a Rota comprised of these shifts.

The shifts and rotas inform both the Planner and Route Scheduler and can be used to incorporate holiday and any other non-productive times such as training sessions.

This will provide you with an even more efficient, easily accessible visual indication of which engineers are available for work and at which times when planning and scheduling jobs.

Set up and Permissions

To enable this setting, navigate to Settings > System Set up.

Next, click Edit and then scroll to find “Allow Engineer Shifts”. Tick this to enable the feature.


The question mark next to this will inform of the what the setting will do - ‘By enabling this feature, the system will override any individual Engineer working hours that have been selected’.

The ability to Create, Edit and View Engineer Shifts is permission based, so you can choose who has access.

Navigate to Settings > Staff > click staff member > User/Staff tab to edit permissions as needed.
