Accounts: Manage a user's available working hours

In this article

Each user has a customized set of available hours that define when that user is available to work each week. When assigning shifts, users will appear unavailable if the shift falls outside their defined available hours. Similarly, Auto Scheduler will not assign users to a shift outside of their available hours. Users will also be unable to swap or pick up shifts if the shift occurs when they are not available to work.

Each user can customize their own available hours and Admin users can also edit the available hours for any user.

Note: Admins can generate a report that will display the Available Hours for each account in LibStaffer.
