Keep the following points in mind when you set up schedules for employees:
If you do not have employees working in shifts, use only Shift 1 to schedule your employees.
Each time you create or copy an employee's schedule, ensure everything is fine by checking if the employee is visible on the Appointment Book for a given date or dates. Similarly, do a random check to see that the employee does not appear on the Appointment Book on her weekly offs.
Click the date on the top panel to open the calendar to navigate to required dates and set schedules quickly.
Use the Copy forward to __ days/weeks/months as per your convenience. Each of these options are available under the Days/Weeks/Months tabs, respectively.
If an employee is unable to come into the center to discharge her duties, select the name of the employee from the Employee drop-down list and select Special Leave in the Update status to drop-down list for the day, week, or month.
If you want to schedule employees with a specific role who follow the same weekly offs and working time in a week, you could copy forward weekly schedules using the Roles filter.
As far as possible, use the Weeks tab to set schedules and copy forward these schedules for the rest of the year.
