Humanity allows you to set your availability for specific dates in the future that may be different to your regularweekly availability.

To set an employee’s future availability, first click on their profile under the ‘Staff’ tab. When you click on ‘Future Availability’, you can set these parameters. And if you have the ‘Availability Approval’ feature enabled, then all changes must be approved by you, as a manager.

To turn on the ‘Availability Approval’ feature, go to the ‘Admin’ tab and click on ‘Account Settings’. Under the subheading ‘Vacation/Availability Settings’, mark the checkbox next to ‘Availability must be approved by management’.

Once staff have added a date and time then it will appear on their list of availabilities, where they can still edit and/or delete the availability. Green colored boxes indicate availability while pink colored boxes indicate unavailability. Click the ‘Edit’ icon to edit availability, or the ‘Delete’ icon to remove availability.

Once an employee adds a future availability request, you, as a manager, will see the request on your Dashboard and under the ‘Requests’ tab. Under ‘Future Availability’ a list of availability requests will appear.

Any updated time slots will be noted by diagonal lines.
