Availability Reasons

Availability reasons allow you to control the type of Availability Employees submit. An Employee will have to provide a reason if they indicate that they are not available. 

By default, your newly created account will be pre-populated with two availability reasons: "School" and "Other job". To add more reasons, go to Manage > Availability > Reasons. NOTE: Only Admins can manage reasons. 

Comments Required

You can also choose to have comments required when an Employee selects a specific reason. For instance, you might want to create a reason titled "Other (describe in comments)" and in this case, you'll want comments to be mandatory.

When an Employee is submitting Availability, they'll now be presented with a list of reasons to choose from.

Once the Employee submits their availablity, their Manager will be notified. Click here to read more about availablity approvals
