Instructions

A personal shift calendar can be generated for any year after 1970. All you need to do is supply any date that you have worked, as well as your shift type. A calendar can now be created for nearly any shift. Under shift type, you enter a simple string of numbers separated by commas. Positive numbers denote work days, negative numbers denote off days. A small comment may be used in the shift type. After each number, you may optionally enter a '=' followed by a short message. For example, if you wanted to distinguish between evening/day shifts (or on call days), you could enter this string: 4=nights,-3=on call,3=days,-4.

Examples:

  • You work every 3 days. Your shift type is: 1,-2
  • You work every 4 days. Your shift type is 1,-3
  • You work 4 days, off 4 days. Your shift type: 4,-4
  • You work 3 days, off 2 day, work 4 days, off 1 day. Your shift type is: 3,-2,4,-1
