Publicly Browsable Shifts

Available for Rapid, Core & Enterprise-4

Shifts can be made public - this is to say that they can be viewed by people who have not signed up. This can be useful as it could help you fill shifts that are failing to meet their demand by actively marketing that shift. 

How to activate the setting in your account

1. From your Admin Dashboard follow Settings > Events 

2. Enable public browsing of Events by changing No to Yes (If the Enable public browsing of Events field is not visible in your settings you can raise a ticket on Zendesk or contact: support@rosterfy.com )


3. Adjust the Shifts can be viewed in public by default field to match requirements. 

4. Adjust Shifts are public by default to match requirements. 

5. Click Save


5. Publicly browsable shifts will now be able to be created in your account.
