Calendar

Before you can use the calendar, you must (Add Shift VIDEO), then create a schedule or (Create A Schedule VIDEO). The calendar is continuous scrolling, with a stationary month header, and another one that scrolls with the calendar. There are blank days at the beginning and end of each month. This is normal, and makes it less visually confusing than repeating 2 weeks.
calendar

It immediately displays a blank calendar, then works in the background to fill in the information. As you scroll through the months more blank days will be added, then updated every 10 weeks. If you make a change that affects a few days the update is very fast, but if it affects all of the days displayed, it can take a little longer to update the calendar.

If you have 1 person selected, your schedule is displayed normally, but if you have more than 1 selected, the hours you see are the common off-time hours between the selected schedules. The off-time comparison uses rules set on the options screen. The current rule is shown directly below the icons. Touch the rule to change it.

Holidays are listed by name in the holiday color (if enabled). If it is a scheduled holiday, the entire day will be the holiday color and hours will be "OFF".
Vacation days are indicated by "VAC" and the entire day will be the vacation color (if enabled)
Paydays are indicated by the payday symbol in the upper right corner of the day. It will be the payday color code if enabled.
Events normally display their ABBR setting. if it is blank, then their name is used.
