Spend some time to view the different functions within the Tools menu. All of them are described with a brief text. As a basic principle, what you see in the schedule is what is going to be exported to print. Please also check your View Options settings on the View Options menu − how your data/schedule will be displayed. 

  • Shift Codes − where you handle all shift codes. 
  • Replace Shift Code − here you can replace the shift code for selected users. 
  • Create Rotating Schedule − here you can copy a schedule already created. This function is good to use where you have a rolling schedule in place. Please read more in Scheduling. 
  • Insert Value into Unspecified Row − enables you to populate your schedule with different choices. Percentage of Cockpit Target or Cockpit Planned can automatically be inserted by using this function. 
  • Submit To Budget/Forecast − where you submit your Cockpit Planned Hours to Forecast or Budget. 
  • Alerts − where you handle the alerts used. 
  • Add Alerts To Workers − if activated, here you can set alerts connected to workers; for example, maximum number of hours during a month.
