How An Employee’s Schedule Is Determined?

Configure employee absence plans, types, categories, certificates, and reasons, including formulas, entitlements profiles, and prices. The tasks in this management and maintenance work area are part of the proposal for personnel placement in the attendance management function.

You can set employee hours in different ways. This information is used to automatically determine the official list of employees for the selected period:

  • Current schedule or opening hours
  • Exceptions for calendar events and work schedules
  • Absence notes

Published Schedule:

A published task list is created for each employee based on the workweek, basic work schedule, or regular working hours. It can also be created using published schedules from other planning apps such as Schedule Leave that provides various other employee management tools. The published schedule shows the applicable calendar events and no-shows.

The workweek is configured in the employee job file. The schedule created from the workweek also shows the applicable calendar events and absences.

Main work schedule:

The main work plan refers to one of these levels. The schedule created from the work plan also shows planned calendar events and resource exclusions, as well as appropriate absences.

  • Main duties of employees
  • Position
  • Profession
  • Department
  • Mandatory employer
  • Company

The process goes through the graph hierarchy in the specified order and stops as soon as it finds the base graph. This example hierarchy shows the main work schedule assigned to three levels. All employee plans are affected by calendar events and resource exclusions that are in the masterwork plan regardless of level. They are also affected by the absences they report in the selected period.

Standard Working Hours:

Standard working hours are specified in the employee's main duties. Schedules created with these hours also show the applicable calendar events and absences.
