Your personal schedule can change on a day to day basis. Doctors' appointments, family trips, even spare time on your hands will influence whether or not you are able to work. In Hotschedules you are able to make requests off and requests to work for an entire day or a particular time range.
Creating a Request
Log into your Hotschedules account and go to the HOME tab. Select TIME OFF & REQUESTS. Next, choose the day you would like to use. This will open up a menu where you will input details for your request.
A - The earliest available date for you to request will appear here. This is based on settings implemented by your manager.
B - You can choose the type of request you are making here.
C - Here you can select the dates you would like to make a request for. Leaving All Day checked will create a request for the entire day. Unchecking this will allow you to use a time range. For example, you could make a request for an entire day with all-day checked, or a request that only applies to 8:00 am - 5:00 PM with it unchecked.
D - You may be required to add a comment to a request before adding it.
Please note: requests do not require manager approval. Instead, they will appear highlighted on the scheduler, where managers can choose to honor them or not when scheduling. There is a report that allows you to see these requests without going into the scheduler called the Employee Request Report as well.
Once all of the above have been filled out, select SAVE to submit your request.
