Timesheet Mobile makes the job of creating, managing and publishing work schedules as easy as a few clicks. Schedules can be added from multiple locations based on your work flow (see How to create work schedules).
There are a number of settings available to customize Timesheet Mobile scheduling to the specific needs of different applications. The available schedule options are as follows:
- Allow Available/Open Shifts. Set this to On to create available shifts (shifts that are available for one or more employees to take) or open shifts (shifts with no assigned employees to use as placeholders until employees can be assigned). See Available Shifts and Open Shifts for Planning for more information about using this feature.
- Work Day Start Time. Use this time as the default time that paid time off is added to the schedule. This can be adjusted for individual days off but time off entered will default to this value.
- Default Shift Length. Use this value to set the default shift length used when creating new shifts or dragging/dropping in the master calendar on the Scheduling page.
- Publish Schedule. Select Immediate to have employees notified as soon as any new shift is added/deleted or an existing shift is modified. Select Manual to work on schedule updates without notifying employees. Click Publish when the schedule is ready for employees.
Schedule settings can be accessed from the Settings selection on the side menu or by clicking on the icon in the upper right hand corner as shown below:
