How do I add staff working hours?

Before your staff members can start using the calendar, you’ll need to add your staff members and set their working hours.

Add staff working hours

Your staff working hours are the hours when your clients can book your services with your available staff members. 

To set up your staff working hours: 

  1. Go to Staff and select Staff working hours.
  2. Use the drop-down menu to filter by date, location, and staff member.
  3. Select a box on the date you would like to apply working hours.
  4. Adjust the Shift start and Shift end hours.
  5. Select Add another shift for built-in breaks, such as a 1-hour lunch break.
  6. Choose whether you would like the shift to repeat Weekly or Don't repeat.
  7. Decide whether you’d like the shift to be Ongoing or finish on a Specific date.
  8. Save changes.

NOTE: When choosing Repeat Weekly, the hours you’ve scheduled will be automatically added for that staff member each week for that day indefinitely or until you make a change.

PRO TIP: Clients are only able to book online during the hours set up under your Staff working hours. If you don't set up staff hours for a given day, clients won’t be able to book your services online for those days.

Remove staff working hours

If a member of staff is on annual leave or sick leave, you'll need to update the staff working hours to ensure you do not receive online bookings on these days. 

To delete staff working hours on a particular day:

  1. Go to Staff and select Staff working hours.
  2. Click on the shift you’d like to edit.
  3. Scroll down and select Delete.

NOTE: If the shift you’re deleting is repeating weekly, you'll have the option to Delete upcoming shifts or Delete this shift only.

PRO TIP: Your trading hours will be determined by your working hours. Use the Closed dates feature for bank holidays or any other irregular days where you need to close the entire business but don’t want to remove working hours.
