Weekly availability will repeat every week, the same day & time unless changed otherwise. You can select the time-slot you want to set yourself unavailable or drag to select multiple time-slots.

Future availability is a one-time availability set for a specific date in future.

Things to know before you begin:

  1. At the top right of the weekly chart, there is an option to switch between 60 and 15 min increment chart, helpful when setting up an hour partially available/unavailable.
  2. This availability is reflected within the shift window to know in advance when someone is not available for a shift.
  3. ‘Submit for Approval’ tab is only visible if the related setting is enabled.

The scenario outlined in this tutorial consists of the following building blocks:

  1. Staff Profile - Weekly Availability
  2. Staff Profile - Future Availability
