The mass update is very effective when updating several shifts at once. This tool is efficient in reducing the time consumption of updating shifts individually, as long as the update being made is consistent across all shifts.

Highlighting Your Shifts

The first step is to highlight the shifts you would like to make the update too. Once you've highlighted your chosen shifts to change, click the Shift Tools option in the top right hand corner, as displayed below.
