Specify how your shifts should be displayed. The 'Display Settings' can be reached from the 'Scheduler' tab by selecting the 'Display Settings' option. The schedule display can use the same line assignments as customized for your printed schedule.
- The 'Display Settings' screen appearance is similar to that of the 'Print Settings' screen, reflecting their similarity in function. If you customized your schedule to contain 'more than one site', a menu is displayed with the site names. Unlike the 'Print Settings' screen, the 'Letter Case' and 'Leading Dash' for shifts cannot be edited from this screen.
- The 'Day Types' display the number of the shift lines in the order they were set up in the 'Manage Shifts'. Once you click on a shift name, the 'Shift display format' window will open, now, you can make changes to the 'Display Line' and 'Line Portion'. The menu is located to the right of each shift name.
You can optimize the displayed schedule appearance by following this procedure:
- Fill in any blank lines in your line assignments by moving the shifts displayed below the blank upward to fill in the gap. These changes, the schedule display will require less vertical height and may allow a larger font size or alleviate the need for scrolling the display to view the entire schedule.
- Create blank lines by moving shifts currently shown on separate lines to different line halves of the same line. Shifts displayed below the created blank can then be moved upward to fill in the gap.
- If the line position and letter case options are adequate to identify which shifts are which on the displayed schedule, you can make the font sizes larger by not displaying the shift name to the left of the assigned provider.
Copy Print Settings: 'Display Settings' can be copied from the 'Print Settings' and vice versa.
Site: (visible only if you are using sites) If you divided your current scheduling location into 'sites' within the 'Admin' tab > 'Edit Location' option > 'Schedule' tab, this information is customized specifically for each site. It displays the Site name that you selected for each shift from the 'Manage Shifts'.
- The lines for each day are numbered in the left margin, with line 1 at top. The name of each 'Day Type' is displayed above the lines that display the preview of the printed shift locations for that 'Day Type'. When you position a shift to display by entering a number in the 'Display Line' # text field, positioned on the requested line, in all 'Day Types' in which it is used. (On the displayed schedule, the name of the provider assigned to that shift will be displayed on that line in the day.) The letter case option you selected for printing each shift is automatically used for shift display; the dot string and dash markers are not used for display.
- The displayed shift positions requires only one preview for each 'Day Type', as all 'Sites' and used shifts are displayed each day, with the shifts grouped by site.
- Example: If you have established sites of ER and Clinic, and Day Types are Weekend and Weekday, then four previews are displayed: ER Weekend, ER Weekday, Clinic Weekday, and Clinic Weekend
- When you position a shift for display by entering a number in the 'Display Line' text field, the preview box displays the name of that shift, positioned on the requested line, in all 'Day Types' in which it is used. (For display of an actual schedule, the name of the provider assigned to that shift will be displayed on that line in the day.) If you divided your current scheduling location into 'Sites' in the 'Admin' tab > 'Edit Location' screen > 'Schedule' tab, the line numbers represent the line number for the shift within its site.
- The 'Day Types' will display the shifts in order. If you need to add, edit or delete a shift, click on the menu located next to the shift name to modify the shift.
