It's easy to import shifts into DigiQuatics. If you are coming from another scheduling tool or simply have been doing staff scheduling in an Excel spreadsheet it is easy to migrate over to DigiQuatics.
Step 1: Navigate to the Shifts Importer
To get to the Shifts Importer, first click the "Gear" icon at the top of the navigation bar.
Then on the settings page click the "Scheduling and Availabilities" tab on the accordion menu.
Lastly, under the "Shifts Importer" header click the link for importing mass shifts.
Step 2: Load your data
Next, you will see the shift importer grid / spreadsheet in DigiQuatics. From here you can either copy and paste cells, columns, rows, selections of data from Excel into the shift importer or type in the cells directly. We also have various cells directly linked to your account so you can easily assign a row to a particular employee, position, location, etc. Be sure to include all the required rows: Date, Start Time, End Time, Location and Position.
Pro Tip: The Shifts Importer can also be used to mass create shifts in DigiQuatics once your organization is already setup in the app.
Step 3: Import your shifts
The last step here is to click the "Import" button. DigiQuatics will now import your shifts, do a quick validation to check if any data is missing, and send you an email with the results. Your shifts should show up nearly instantly on the staff schedule but regardless you can expect them to appear within 5 minutes.
That's it. You have now migrated your staff schedule into DigiQuatics.
