Defining Employee Skills

Employee skills are primarily used to help you choose the right employee for a shift. You can define a list of skills and select one or more from the list when you are editing or creating an employee. This way, you save time and the skills can be used to group and filter employees.

To add a new skill:

  1. From the Manage tab, click Skills. Then, click

  2. Enter the required code and description for the skill.

  3. Specify whether or not the skill is active by checking/unchecking the corresponding checkbox.

  4. Optionally, you can enter a display sort order value to effect the placement of the skill in the skills drop-down list. This is helpful when you have a large number of skills and would like to place the most frequently used skill at the top of the list to minimize scrolling.

  5. You can show a warning in the Scheduler Dashboard when the skill is about to expire. If the skill expires, you must specify the number of days prior to the skill's expiration.
