As a planner, you can easily create a work schedule based on the availability of employees. This way, you always know that employees who are scheduled are actually available!
In order for employees to be able to specify their availability, you need to give employees the appropriate permissions to do so.
Administrators can enter employee availability from within Shiftbase. To do this, go to the Schedule tab and click the Arrow in the upper right corner of the green Add shift button. Next, click on Availability.
You will then arrive at the screen below. Here you enter the availability of the desired employee.
- Period: The period for which the availability should be specified.
- Employee: The employee for which availability should be specified.
- Copy from the previous week: Copy the availability of the previous week in relation to today.
- Options per day:
- Available all day
- Available from
- Unavailable all day
- Unavailable from
⚠️ Note: Unavailability indicates a preference not to work. Want to make sure you won't be scheduled? Then request absence.
