If you have a requirement for more than one skill on the scheduled shifts, Humanity allows you to manage which employee would be able to opt for it depending upon the skills assigned to them in their profile

Things to know before you begin:

  1. You must have manager/admin access privileges in Humanity to enable the 'Required skill on shift' settings for your employees.

  2. Skill(s) must be added under Staff module to be reflected in the shift.

  3. The user can add one or multiple skills, however, employees will be narrowed down as per your selected settings between 'ANY' or 'ALL' from the drop-down next to required skills settings.

  4. Enabling required skills per shift will disable the current filter by skill feature on Shift Edit Window (SEW).
