What is BD?

BD = Business Decline. This indicates to the employee that there is no firm shift end time.

Here's an example to show how BD works in 7shifts:

In this case, you are scheduling an Employee from 5pm-BD.

Employee Perspective:
From their perspective, they are working at 5pm and will be sent home when things slow down, with no specified end time.

Admin / Manager Perspective:
Since 10pm is entered as the shift's end time, you will get an approximate labor cost for this shift (5 hours).

⚠️ You will still need to enter a shift end time in order to get an approximate labor cost for this shift.

Don't worry, the shift end time is not visible to the Employee.
