On the Schedule calendar you are able to create both shifts and jobs. The main differences between a shift and a job are time and payment.

Time

Shift is created for a specific time which you can track, for example, 9:00 - 17:00. For a job you can't add start and end time, just a date by when it needs to be done.

Job is considered more like a task. E.g. there is a work that needs to be done - a carpet installation. It can be done within a week, no certain time and timesheet needed after, it just needs to be done separately or within a shiftwork.

Payment

Another difference is that whereas shifts have hourly rates the jobs have a one off payment - this means that regardless of the hours or dates it took to complete a job the payment will be fixed. This is the reason why many of our users use it also for additional pay if needed because within a shift the staff sometimes do an extra work or get benefits.
