This article describes the process for submitting Schedules within the Scheduling module.
Setting a Location to ‘Closed’
If the Location has recently closed, there is functionality available to be able to set this Location as ‘Closed’ within the Forecast page of Scheduling.
- To do so, tick the Department Closed box for the required day(s). This must be applied daily, and to each Location individually
Please Note: The ability to tick Department Closed on the Forecast page is a user permission, and can be applied to additional User Levels as required to assist in the smooth running of the business. To request this functionality, please liaise with your Fourth contact.
