Step 1: Add Positions

Positions represent the skills or job codes within your organization. For example, a restaurant might have positions like server, bartender, and hostess. Add some positions so that you can organize your schedule. 

If everyone on your schedule is working the same position then you can skip this step. To learn about managing positions in ZoomShift see this help guide.

Step 2: Add Locations

Locations represent the physical locations, sites, or departments within your organization. If you only have one location then you can skip this step. Otherwise, add some locations so that you can filter your schedule by location. To learn about managing locations in ZoomShift see this help guide.

Step 3: Add Employees

Before you can start creating your schedule you need to add your employees. You don’t need to invite your employees to join ZoomShift. You can send invites later, but to start you will need to at least enter a first and last name for your employees. To learn about managing employees in ZoomShift see this help guide.

We recommend adding a few shift templates to start, but you can skip this step if you’d like. To learn about managing shift templates in ZoomShift see this help guide.
