The objective of this tutorial is to help you understand how to add, edit or delete future availability.
Access from your: Android device
Applies to: Employees
Future availability is a one-time availability set for a specific date in the future. Future availability settings override your weekly availability on that specific date.
- Once the future availability is saved, it will bring you back to the main screen for future availability where you will be able to view the status of your request.
- The hours you will add will be marked as unavailable hours, which essentially makes the rest of your time available for work.
Things to know before you begin:
- Your manager must enable 'Staff can set future availability' under the Settings module to give access to their employees for using the functionality.
- If availability change requests effective date is set by the management then all the changes made for a definitive availability will only be effective accordingly.
- You cannot approve availability requests from the mobile app.
- If 'Availability must be approved by management' is enabled under the Settings module, you will have to wait for the management to approve your requested availability.
- Your manager must give access to the schedulers to approve availability by enabling 'Allow schedulers to approve availability' under the Settings module.

- Add Future Availability
