Colour Coding Roles & Shifts


With Gig Grafter you can colour code both your roles and your shifts.

Colour coding a role provides a quick and easy way for the scheduler to see, at a glance, that key functions are covered each day.

Colour coding a shift provides additional versatility to highlight something specific or important about that shift or the person performing it.

You may have a shift for a manager, but this specific shift may be colour coded to denote that the person assigned to that shift is also a first-aider, a keyholder or is responsible for cashing up.

Alternatively, you may want to highlight a group of shifts that have different roles but all relate to a specific activity e.g. breakfast service in a hotel.

The beauty about Gig Grafter is that we simply create the tools but you define the rules.
