Setup an approved, or even a pending, Time Off Request (TOR) for your employees, and have that appear blacked out on their worker calendar. Also, if any unaware scheduler attempts to assign a shift to them during that approved TOR time frame, a warning message will alert them. There is also the option with Utilities, and the Application Settings, to not just warn, but Restrict users from Scheduling over an approved TOR. You can also assign a security level minimum to override this setting. If a Paid Time Off (PTO) request was chosen as the specific type of TOR, this will allow for that employee’s PTO hours to appear on the appropriate Timesheet and payroll processing reports. Watch for the step by step instructions on how to set this up.
