The first day of the template corresponds to the Start Date of the user's template assignment.
For example, if you create a four-day template of two 8-hour days followed by two days off, and assign it to Anna Dell starting March 3, she will be scheduled to work March 3 and 4, and will have March 5 and 6 off, and the schedule will repeat again.

Note:
The template assumes that the 7 day template is for the week and it does not require a start date.
