Choosing The Period For The Timeline

Click on the Period menu on the left to determine the timescale of the Timeline.

"Start Time" and "Duration" determine the total period of the timeline. Selected Day means that when we run the graph the user will be able to select a day from a calendar. We want to report on a single day so the duration is 1 day.

A timeline would usually be set up for a whole day so the interval length should be set to 1 day, this will display a whole day on one page. The "Day Start" field is set to TIME[DAYSTART] - this means the graph will start at the beginning of the first shift.

The "Day End" is set to TIME[DAYEND] so the graph ends at the end of the final shift.

If your first shift starts at 6 am and you run three shifts ending at 6 the next morning, the graph above will run from 6 to 6, not from Midnight to Midnight.
