It’s up to the user to set up a variety of different timetables, all of which will go into action on the dates they choose. To further understand this, let’s look at an example.

Imagine someone who works as a bartender in the night and a barista in the mornings. The employee has the option of selecting whole days or time slots when making changes to their availability settings.

On Mondays, for instance, they could indicate their morning shift at the coffee shop by marking themselves as “Available” from 7:00 am to 12:00 pm, and their evening shift at the bar by marking themselves as “Available” from 6:00 pm to 2:00 am.

All parties benefit from these availability settings since workers are better able to organize their time and managers can know exactly who is available and when. Now that we know availability can be adjusted in HotSchedules, let’s learn how this is done:

For iOS users:

  • Step 1: Make a fresh request by going to My Availability through the menu and clicking the Add button.
  • Step 2: Choose the start date for the new availability, then click Done.
  • Step 3: To update, choose the day that requires modification. When a date is selected, three alternatives appear (Available, Unavailable, Partially Available).
  • Step 4: After making your selection, click Done, and then, after entering each day, click Save.
  • Step 5: Specify the reason for the change and choose the manager who must approve it.
  • Step 6: Finally, hit the “Submit” button.

For Android users:

  • Step 1: Find and pick My Availability using the menu followed by the Add icon to make a new request.
  • Step 2: Pick the new availability start date and hit OK.
  • Step 3: Choose the day that has to be modified in order to update. Now you may choose from one of three available alternatives (Available, Unavailable All Day, Partially Available).
  • Step 4: After making your selection, click Done, and then, after entering each day, click the check button.
  • Step 5: Choose the manager who will approve the change after indicating the reason for the change, and click Submit.
