Before we get into "How to assign Attendance Shift", we need to remember 2 import points mentioned below:

  1. Attendance Shifts are assigned at user level (i.e. employee level). 
    This means: You can create unlimited number of Attendance Shifts but each Attendance Shift will function only when it is "assigned to the desired/required employee". If a Attendance Shift is created but not assigned, it's as good as no shift! :)
  2. Editing/Changing an existing Attendance Shifts, will affect ALL employees who're already assigned that Shift
    This means: You are allowed to edit any existing Attendance Shift at any time, but always keep in mind that any changes to the Shift will affect the employees who're already assigned that Attendance Shift(s).
