Use the Shift table to define and manage work shifts for an organization.
This table supports Response integrations for Fleet accounts.

For variable shifts that can start and end within a given time period, specify both the start and end time. For example, for an 8-hour shift that can start between 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM, specify EarliestStartTime=8:00:00 and LatestEndTime=18:00:00.
