Employees can have multiple availabilities that will go into effect according to their active date. For example, if an employee has to attend school for the fall semester, they can set up an availability set for that time frame and another for when the spring semester starts.
Managers are able to submit these availability changes on behalf of the employee on the staff list. When editing an availability set, users can select an entire day or just a time range. To go off of the example above, if the user has class from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm on a Monday, the manager can set up their availability to reflect this. This will appear on the schedule for all managers as well.
