The Schedule Preparation section is where Schedulers will create Schedule Templates and assign shifts to officers.
Access this section by following this path:
Dashboard > Schedules & Attendance > Schedule Preparation Section
The options in this section allow schedulers to create shifts at different operational entities such as Sites (Clients), Departments or Zones. From the Schedule Preparation section, select where you would like to schedule the employee’s shifts.
Sites (Clients): Dedicated or static officers can be scheduled at sites because their duties never require them to leave the assigned site.
Departments: Administrative staff and salaried supervisors can use the departments option.
Zones: Mobile or patrol officers should be scheduled at zones since their duties typically require them to visit several sites during their shift.
