Group Events

The Group Events option in the Time Off / Event Calendar allows you to schedule events and have those events then populate on select employee's calendars, along with the CrewScheduler. This is useful, for example, if you want to place an event on an entire shift's employee personal calendars.

To add an Event, simply click the + Add event button.

Group events will populate on the right side of the CrewScheduler, just above the Employees Off and Misc. boxes.
