Note: You can use the Unavailability Highlight section to easily review existing unavailability data for past and future periods and highlight instances when the staff coverage is above, below, or equal to demand.

To use this feature, define values for High Unavailability, Low Unavailability, or both. High Unavailability indicates the maximum number of employees that can be unavailable at the same time. Low Unavailability indicates the ideal number of employees that can be unavailable at the same time.

Once you enter these values (either one or both), click on the Apply button to see the color-coded preview, as shown in Image 8.
