Now when employees login to their Employee portal > Availability they will see Availability in their menu to update as needed.

Admin's can view Availability:

  • Through Time & Attendance > Availability (Availability Request Tab) this is where you can see all the availability requests (availability and temporary availability requests).

Setting block out days

  • As an Admin you're able to set days that you do not want any staff submitting leave for. This could be a peak day for example.

To set a block out date:

  • In the quick menu navigate to Time & Attendance > Availability and select the Set Time Off Preferences Tab.
  • Here you can update Time off Periods such as block out date where staff cannot take leave by clicking on the date, entering in the details e.g. Time off is unavailable and saving.

To select dates where staff are available to book leave for:

  • You can create a availability request for dates that are available for your staff to take leave.
  • In the quick menu navigate to Time & Attendance > Availability and select the Set Time Off Preferences Tab.
  • Here you can update Time off Periods such as block out date where staff cannot take leave by clicking on the date, entering in the details e.g. Ideal on this/these days and saving.

When a casual staff member now tries to submit a temporary availability request (if they would like to take a day off ), it will now show them these preferences.
