At GigGrafter we believe that some of the best rota templates are often the rotas you have already used for a similar week in the past.

Here's some step by step instructions on how to copy and paste a previous week's rota:

1. Select the week to be scheduled. Please note, this rota must be blank.

2. Click on "Copy Shifts From Another Rota".

3. Using the date picker to select the week you would like to copy (it can be a past or future rota).

4. Choose whether you want to copy just the "shifts" or "shifts and placements."

! Quick Tip - Copy Shifts and Placements

This is the quickest way to create your next rota and is ideal if most of your staff will be working the same shifts as the rota to be copied.

Any small changes can be handled quickly by simply reassigning shifts from one staff member to another using our simple drag and drop feature.
