This allows you to manage team member availability, team leave and online booking availability from one feature, in one location - making is easier to learn and use, and faster to set and change times.
To Access Rosters:
Go to Calendars > Rosters (found to the right of Month View selector)
In the Roster you will see your Team Members listed in rows
Multiple team members - each team member will have a Roster row and an online booking row
Multiple locations - there is an All Locations dropdown so you can see a team members roster over many locations. You can also select each location from the Location dropdown to view the Roster specific to that location
Each team member’s available times is set in Rosters and added as a Shift.
A team members shift will reflect in their calendar and be seen as grey unavailable times.
If no Roster is set for a team member, then no grey unavailable time is displayed in the calendars.
Roster is viewable in Month view so you can see at a glance the complete month
The Roster view can be updated using the Business, Location and Previous/Next controls
The selected month is displayed across the ribbon at the top of Rosters
Hovering over the dates of the selected month, highlights the column for easier viewing
Each team member is included in a row
Each team member has a row for Roster, and a row for Online Bookings
Both rows for each team member will be shown by default.
Each team members name & avatar will be displayed.
Based on shift creation, a Hours count is displayed underneath the team member name, this is the total hours for the Month they are rostered. e.g. Jane Smith 25 Hrs.
View Online Booking toggles
The top left ‘View Online Bookings’ toggle, adds and removes all Online Booking rows from the current view for the user. This allows you to easily see just the shifts, and not any online booking times for clarity and better viewing.
Online Booking - on or off per team member.
Against each team member there is a toggle ‘Online?' - this controls turning availability on and off for that team member by just using a single switch.
When this is OFF, that team member cannot be booked for any online bookings (online bookings are paused)
When it is ON, the team member can be booked, as long as it’s within the hours that the user can included for those days (online bookings accepted)
Adding a Shift:
A roster is made up of shifts - shifts are blocks of time that the team member is meant to be working.
A shift is shown in each box corresponding to the team member and date.
If the team member has no shift, the box has a + (indicating that you can add a shift)
If a box is blank, click the box, launching the ‘Add Shift’ screen

Online Booking Hours - Set availability using Team Rosters
Managing online booking availability for team members is done using Rosters. In the same way Shifts are added to a team members Roster, Online Booking hours are also added per Location, Per Team Member for greater and centralised control.
Under each Shift row on the Team Member row there is a row ONLINE BOOKING. This must be used to set the times that the team member can be booked online by a client. Setting online booking hours are done exactly the same way a Shift is created. Click to add online booking hours, add the details the team member is available for online bookings, SAVE. These hours will be reflected in the online booking engine when a client makes a booking.
