Availability preferences are the days and times that an employee can (or can't) work during any given week. Availability is not for specific dates, but rather it is applied to every week on the schedule.

Not all schedules have availability enabled.

As a manager you can disable the availability add-on. You can control which add-ons are enabled for you schedule on the add-ons page.

Adding/Editing Availability Preferences

You can create an availability preference for an employee on the schedule. When you are on the schedule you can click on the plus icon next to an employees name on the left side and you will see an option for New Availability.


When you click to add a new availability preference you will see a pop-up form like the one below. Also, once an availability preference is added you can click on it and you will see this same form.


Availability on the Schedule

Availability preferences are visible on the schedule to make it easy to know which employees are able to work. When creating your schedules you may accidentally add a shift that conflicts with an availability preference. If this happens you will notice that the shift will turn red. This indicates that the shift has an error.
