Additional Information

1. In case you want to stop using the extension, you can easily deactivate it. That will delete all the mappings. Shifts will remain intact though. So if you want to delete the shifts as well, you might want to manually delete the mappings. After re-activation orders are synced according to the newly set start syncing date. Shift duplicates are possible if previously created shifts are not removed.

2. bookingkit is always the source of truth for the shifts. So that the shifts should never be removed manually on Papershift backend. In case a shift is deleted, it will be created again on the next sync. A proper way to delete shifts is to delete a corresponding mapping.
