If your team uses all or even some of the same people every week, create templates to help you schedule faster. If you have rotating teams, add each rotation to a template, and then import that template to any plan.
Before creating a template, set up your teams and positions.
To access the Templates tab, select Templates from the gear icon menu in a Service Type.
To create your template, click Add template.
Enter the name of the template, and then press Enter to create the template.
If you want to schedule teams of people to serve on a rotating basis, you can create a separate template for each team. For example, if you have different people who serve every other week, you can create two separate templates for your team--one that serves on weeks 1 and 3 and one for weeks 2 and 4.
A template looks a lot like a plan, but it doesn't have Times or Series information. Times and Series only belong to Plans, not Templates.
Set up your template by adding teams and assigning needed positions and people.
Add the teams and needed positions that you need to fill each time you use this template.
If you have people that you want to assign to a position every time the template is used, assign those people to positions in the template. You can have both scheduled people and needed positions for a team.
In the example above, the people scheduled to the template will be scheduled every time the template is used in a plan. The needed positions will also transfer to the plan, and these positions will be scheduled separately for each plan.
After you have set up your template with people and positions, you can:
Schedule people to the plan.
Continue to add additional service information to the template.
Reuse the template by exporting it.
