Based on the configuration of the following items, WorkSight automatically generates the default weekly schedule for each job: it creates the required shifts in the schedule from the shift pattern specified in the Job and then schedules the assigned employee for each required shift. The assigned employee field for a job can be populated or left blank when a job is created; an employee may be assigned at a later date.
A Job must always be added before an employee can be scheduled, or before any other schedule components can be configured.
A Job is a combination of the following elements:
- Auto Create Vacancy for Absence Reasons
- Remove Overlapping Assignments
- Assigned Employee
- Effective Date Range
- Shift Pattern (containing Shift Types & Reason Codes)
- Shift Pattern Offset
The ability to create or edit the job elements is accessible from the Job Details, which will appear in the Right Pane when the Add Job button is clicked or a populated cell in the Job column of the Schedule grid is selected.
