When an employee is set to ‘scheduled and must check in/out’, you have the option to set them also to ‘can check in/out on days without a schedule’. When you do this, you must enter their default break and meal breaks. The reason for this is that the system has no way of knowing, since they are not scheduled, how long they will be working. Because of this, we don’t know how much time to allocate based on the setup. So you must specify what they are allowed.

Employees who are marked as ‘NOT scheduled and can check in/out at any time’ will show on the schedule page, however they will not have the option to add a schedule (because this option does not allow for schedules).
Once the schedule is unpublished, you will be able to make changes/updates. Don’t forget to re-publish it when you are finished!
Yesterday we launched ‘Grouping By Employees’ for scheduling. This feature allows you to create a group picking specific employees that will show up in the scheduling ‘Department’ list. This is useful if you want to schedule all department managers on one screen.
