What is the Schedule tab?

The Schedule tab is where you go to build your schedule and monitor how it is performing. Within this tab, we have multiple features and views.

Tip: The Schedule Tab is best used in full screen mode, where you can preview the schedule in the most optimized view. The Full Screen button icon_fullscreen can be found in the top left of the navigation. 

What can I achieve? 

The Schedule tab is used to create Shifts and appoint the right staff to this Shift. The Schedule tab can gives you an overview of which Shifts need more Volunteers and which Shifts are filled in.

What are the different viewing options?

Bloomerang Volunteer offers three different views of the Schedule (also known as Categories). Each view provides a different perspective on the Scheduled based on the structure of the Shift.

The three different views are Scheduled Shifts, Scheduled Roles, and Scheduled Volunteers. Each view of the schedule reflects a layer of the shift structure:

  • Scheduled Shifts gives a top-down perspective on all of your Scheduled Shifts. 
  • Scheduled Roles gives a middle view of all of the Roles scheduled within each Shift. 
  • Scheduled Volunteers gives a bottom-up view of all the Volunteers scheduled in each Role within each Shift. 


Change Views 

You can select your desired view by clicking on the dropdown in the top left navigation. The default tab is the Scheduled Shifts tab.
