In this section, you can enter the general availability for the employee. This way it will be clearly identified on the schedule when they are not available to work.
This ensures that an employee won’t be scheduled at a time when they aren’t available.
This is only for recurring availability, please note that there is a section for requests that is independent of this section.
To add information, just click on any given day and a pop up will appear offering to enter availability. The standard is available all the time. Once you save a day or time period where the employee is unavailable, that day or time period will be identified in red.
Click the + sign to add emergency contact information. It is always recommended to have such information for every employee since our business makes us prone to accidents. It is important to have someone to contact in case of an emergency.
In this section, you will add the contact name, phone number, email address, and a note box if you need additional notes on the contact.
You can always remove a contact using the “REMOVE” button,
Make sure you save the file before exiting to ensure the employee is added to the platform.
