Work patterns allow you to set up regular working and 'weekend' days to assign to employees who work on a fixed schedule. This means that employees will only be recommended for shifts on days when they're actually working, and if they book a block of leave we can make sure to only take the number of days from their allowance that they'd have been working anyway. Neat, right?

  1. Head over to the settings page by clicking on the cog icon at the bottom left of your screen. 
  2. Select the 'Work Patterns' tab under the General Settings heading on the left of the screen.
  3. Here you'll see the various working patterns that have been set up for your account.

    1. To add more work patterns click the 'Add Work Pattern' button in the top right and enter the pattern name, then choose the days of the week that should be counted as working days before saving.
    2. To edit an existing work pattern click the 'Edit' button to the right of the listing.
    3. To delete an existing work pattern click the bin icon to the right of the listing.
    4. You can also use the 'Primary Work Pattern' toggles to set one of your work patterns as the default. New employees will automatically be assigned this work pattern (although you'll still be able to change them on a case by case basis).
  4. Once you're happy with your work patterns you can assign them to your team by editing their profile.
