How do I add tags? (Desktop)

Modified on Tue, 21 Nov 2023 at 03:39 PM

Adding tags to your schedule can be a useful way of giving employees extra info about their shifts. Want to tell them where on-site they'll be based, which till they're assigned to, or pretty much anything else? No problem. You can add tags quickly as described below, or fully manage them in your company settings.


  1. Head over to the scheduling page by clicking on the 'Schedule' calendar icon on the left of your screen. You'll default to the week view, but you can change view if you want to. 
  2. Click the filter icon on the left of the screen to view the filter menu.
  3. Click the 'Add another tag' link next to the Tags dropdown.
  4. Name the new tag, choose whether it should be visible to employees or just to managers, then click the Add button. Your new tag will be added to the dropdown in the filter menu, ready for you to start assigning it to shifts.
