Unavailability import requirements
The import will require a unique ID for the instance of unavailability, along with the employee ID and date.
From there, you can add other data as required, such as:
- the duration – if it’s ‘all day’
- start and end times – if it doesn’t last the entire day
- end date – if it goes for longer than one day
- how often it reoccurs – ‘every week’ etc as per the submission form, or simply ‘Once off’
- any applicable notes
- the status it should be added as – ‘Pending’ or ‘Approved’
Once you have imported the data successfully, it will appear and can be edited under Rostering > Unavailability.
