Although you can use them on their own, Skills and Attributes are an important aspect of scheduling. They can be certifications or permits, they can be skills the employee has, or items the employee possesses, such as uniforms. You can assign Skills and Attributes individual guards.

The advantages of using skills and attributes include:
Schedules: Only see employees that meet the combination of compliance for the post/position. Most likely, these compliances will be a requirement from the client that is receiving the service. I.e. site-specific training, firearm license, First aid/CPR training,
Legal Reasons: Depending on the country, state, province, or area your employees will be working. This will help by making sure they meet the minimum requirements to work for the Security Company. I.e. Security Guard Card, Driver’s License, Languages.
Employee Management: With our date fields, you will be able to control that all employees are renewing their certifications on time.
