If the employee has weekly shifts, for example, from Monday to Friday the working time is 9:00 am to 18:00 pm and saturdays and sundays day-off, it is recommended the using of an Auto-schedule for this employee, in order to complete the schedule faster than by programming shifts manually for each date.
