In this post we will cover how to assign users to our shift or allow your users to sign up for shifts themselves. Within TexCom there are two different ways to assign users. The first is if you have full-time users assigned to the same shift for a period of time, such as a month or longer. The second is to assign users to a specific day and shift. This process is great for fire departments that allow part-time users to pick the days and shifts they want.

In this multi-part blog post we will discuss what was one of the most requested features of TexCom: Shift Scheduling. We are happy to offer this as a part of TexCom and at the same time offering it Free to our users. The goal with this series is to help you understand the best practices in setting up your department to use TexCom as your shift scheduling source. Even though we may discuss this at a fire department level, our shift scheduling scheme is commonly used in other areas of public safety such as police, ambulance companies, and any other organization that has a need for schedule rotation. This first part will deal with the basics of how our shift scheduling started and how it is set up within TexCom.
