shift state defaultManagers are able to set a default Shift State from the General Settings tab under Shift and Schedule Settings. By setting the default Shift State, all Shifts that are made will be either in Draft or Published State.

If the schedule needs to be finalized with edits after restoring staff/volunteers into Shift Roles, it is recommended to have the default stat be Draft.  If staff/volunteers will be signing up for Shifts during the signup workflow then default state should be set to Published.
