How can I colour code my roster to make it more visual?

Colour coding can be a great way to make rostering more visual. It is also a great way to ensure that key positions are covered so that the business is correctly catered for. 

You are able to colour code one, multiple, all or none of the positions on the roster and you get to choose what colour each position shows as on the roster.

1. Head to the positions tab

To get your rostering looking colourful like the one below start by clicking on the positions tab.

2. Choose a colour

Click into one of the positions in your list and a popup window will appear. 
Select the custom colour dropdown in the top right of the popup window and select from one of the available colours!

3. Admire your work

Once you have gone through and given all the positions a colour code they will show up as that colour when choosing a position to roster for and when that position is used for a shift on the roster.

NOTE: You are able to go back into the position and change the colour at any point.
