How it works
With employee scheduling, employees can use OnLocation Mobile to schedule where they'll be working.
The settings can be managed at both a global and location level. An Administrator for a location can turn off the global settings and select the settings that work best for their location.
Scheduling settings include:
- Choose if bookings can be made for a full day or hourly
- Allow global roaming employees to make bookings at locations they are visiting
- Limit bookings to the location's occupancy limit
- Prevent employees who have not made a booking from signing in
- Limit bookings to operating hours
- How far in advance bookings can be made
