    To Date and time when the coverage ends.
    Suppose for a shift, A covers from 12pm to 4pm and B covers from 6pm to 8pm. Then A edits the coverage timing from 12pm to 9pm. Changing the shift timing does not remove B from the shift. Instead, the shift coverage will be as follows:
    • A covers from 12pm to 6pm.
    • B covers from 6pm to 8pm.
    • A covers from 8pm to 9pm.
