  • Click Search to open the Search window 
  • Change the settings to narrow your search (ex. Published or Unpublished)
  • Enter a word or phrase to search for in the description if appropriate 
  • Choose the date range to search 
  • Choose a Category, Position, and/or employee (deleted employees are at end of list)
  • Click Search

The list of shifts that match that search will appear in the same window below. Clicking any of the shifts will open a new window with information

  • Click the employee name to bring up the View Employee Details window 
  • Click the date to go to that day in the schedule 
  • Click any other part of the row to go to the Shift Change window so that you can make changes to the shift
