2. Click the red Delete button:

You will then be presented with two delete options which include:

After you've made your selection, confirm the action by clicking the red Delete button once more.




Q: Can I apply a repeating shift to more than one employee?

A: Yes, when you initially create a repeating shift you'll be able to select which employees it should be assigned to from the dropdown menu. Please know, you can't assign additional employees to an existing shift. Only during the initial creation of a shift can multiple employees be assigned.
