You can assign a corresponding work schedule to each employee. By default, one weekly schedule is created in the project, with two weekends (Sat and Sat) and a set of additional weekends and working days according to the production calendar. This schedule cannot be deleted.
In addition to this schedule, you can create your own. This is done on the "Work schedules" settings page. The schedule can be weekly and with an arbitrary cycle:
In the weekly schedule you can set up weekends (for example, if you have a six-day week and the default schedule does not suit you), additional weekends (holidays) and additional working days
- In the free-run schedule you can set the number of working days and days off in the cycle, indicate the days when the schedule starts (e.g. you do the first shift with a working day and the second with a weekend), also set the additional days off and the cycle start date (from which the system starts the schedule, in other words the first day when the schedule takes effect)
- For a schedule with an arbitrary cycle, you can look at the resulting distribution of workdays and days off by clicking on the calendar icon:
Employees with access to view and edit work schedules can view and edit work schedules, respectively.
More about additional days off
In the settings under "Production Calendar" you can configure additional days off/working days. By default they are not included in newly created schedules.
If when you create a new work schedule, you want the additional days off/working days in it to correspond to those specified in the settings of the production calendar, you need to click on the "Add from Production Calendar" button when creating/editing the schedule:
Work schedules and metrics
Only weekdays are counted on the metrics chart. If the end of the reporting week falls on a holiday, the chart will show the previous day. The daily metric displays only weekdays, so the metric schedule for an employee working in shifts will be displayed without gaps for weekends.
Once assigned to an employee, the work schedule is recorded in the history. For example, if an employee first worked on one schedule and then switched to another, the historical metrics data will be displayed using the old schedule and the new data will be displayed using the new schedule.
Assigning work schedule to an employee
The work schedule can be assigned to an employee who has editing access to users. To do this, open the user editing panel in the list of employees in the Company section and select the desired schedule in the drop-down list.
The schedule is assigned to the employee, not the position. For example, in your sales department, employees work on a 2/2 schedule. If you hire a new employee and put him/her in the position of sales manager, this schedule will not be assigned to him/her automatically; you must assign it to the employee separately.
Please note: The schedule for the employee goes into effect on the date of appointment. That is, it does not change past periods in the metrics, but becomes effective only from the date of appointment.
