Bi-weekly work scheduling

Is there a way to set up a bi-weekly work schedule rule? Everything appears to be based on daily, weekly & monthly time periods. We have a new group of employees who work four 12-hour shifts one week a three 12-hour shifts the next week, for a total of 84 hours in a bi-weekly period.

IMG Define Period Work Schedules. You can define work schedules for any rotation you need. Using he same period work schedule name you can create a 2 week rotation by creating 2 entries with the same name and use the week field to differentiate between week one and week two. Example below week 1 works the first 4 days of week on off last 3. Week 2 off first 2 days of week and works last 5.
