View your schedule
View your schedule in MyTime. Use the week view to see the schedule with all details or the month view for a high-level overview.
In the week view, each day has a header and today’s date is highlighted in blue. If there is a defined bank holiday within the period, the date is marked in red. The header shows the shift category, the start and end times of the shift and the total contract time. If the day contains scheduled overtime, this will also be stated here.
The shifts are shown with the start and end time for all activities. If the activities are too short to display any text, hover the activity for the type of activity and the start and end time. If an activity has diagonal stripes, it is an overtime activity.

The month view gives an overview of the schedule for a full month. For shifts, the shift category is shown and indicated by color. The start and end times of the shift and the shift contract time are also shown. Days off are indicated by diagonal stripes.
