Allow your part-timers to specify their hourly availability

Managing availability periods

Availability is the period during which an employee is available to work for on a given day. It’s especially useful for part-time employees who don’t work in regular timeslots. 

Note: in order to be able to add availability for a given person you need to mark “can specify hourly availability” in their profile. Go to Settings > People to do this.

Resources’ availability is displayed in the Calendar as grey cells. Full time employees’ availability is also displayed but it’s not editable. Managers and owners can manage the availability of part time team members. 

Adding availability

An availability can be added by a team member themselves or entered into the Calendar by a manager/owner. This is how to add availabilities to the Calendar:

Scroll to the person/resource you want to add the availability to. Hover over an appropriate day click the plus icon that appears on hover. A drawer will appear where you can add more info about your time entry.

The person and date will already be preselected, but you can edit that data. 

Then, enter availability periods (there can be more than one per day).

You can decide to repeat the availability on given days for a given period.

When you’re done, click save.

Removing availabilities

You can remove availabilities from the Calendar by clicking on the trash bin icon - visible when you hover over an availability or click on it. Managers and owners can edit or remove any availabilities of the part time team members.
