Create a shift

The Shift page in the greytHR Admin portal allows you to create shifts for your employees. You can view all the shifts your organization follows on this page. The existing shifts appear with a shift code, shift name, shift color, and shift timings. 

The page also allows you to edit/delete the existing shifts. If your organization follows more than one shift, you can drag and drop the shift to sort the order. The shift order displays throughout the application.

To view the Shift page, click the Settings icon > System Settings > Attendance > Shift.
