Here's how to add a new Location to your account or update the Location's Settings.

⚠️ Note: Billing is per Location, so you will be charged an additional fee when the Location is added.

To add a Location

1. Hover over the 7shifts logo and go to Locations / Departments / Roles.

2. Select 'Locations' from the tabs on the far left.

3. Click on the green '+ Add Location' button.

4. Enter your Location name and click 'Create Location.'

Location Settings:

With your new Location now created, you will need to select it from your list and verify / update the following settings:

1. General

In the 'General' tab, enter your street address, Location name, and timezone.

2. Hours of Operation

In the 'Hours of Operation' tab, enter the earliest shift's start time and latest shift's end time for this Location. These times should reflect the working hours of the Location, not necessarily the Open and Close times for customers.

Check the 'Closed' box to indicate the days that your business is closed. 

3. Holidays

In the 'Holidays' tab, you can choose to enable holidays, then select the specific holidays you would like to apply to the Location.

Once you enable holidays, you will see a list of default holidays based on your country setting (verify this by going to  your profile picture > Company Settings > General > Country).

You can then select which holidays you want to enable, and decide whether to apply a wage multiplier.

⚠️If have Holidays enabled, but you don't want a holiday to impact the scheduled wages, enter '1.0' as the wage multiplier. 

4. Custom Holidays / Events

To add your own holidays or events, simply click on 'Add custom holiday'. Click 'Save' when you are done.

5. Shift Feedback

Here you can access / enable Shift Feedback, which allows Employees to submit feedback on how their shift went via a push reminder.

⚠️To access the Shift Feedback feature, you must be on The Works plan or higher.

What's next...?

To begin Scheduling for each Location, you will first need to create your Departments and Roles within them. The Departments and Roles you create in 7shifts will help you quickly assign and organize your employees.
