Knowing when someone will be off or on vacation is incredibly important to scheduling your team. Having that information handy helps you make better decisions about how to staff your team’s upcoming weeks, and helps you determine more realistic timelines for projects. In Forecast, Time Off is highly visible within your schedule views so you can quickly see how they affect your timelines.
Today, we’re adding more flexibility in Forecast by allowing you to schedule partial time off. While you can already mark full days off for team members in Forecast, the reality is people also take just a couple hours off. With today’s release, you can mark a team member’s time off for as few or as many hours in a day. Schedule around your designer’s 2-hour doctor appointment next Monday, your project manager who leaves early on Thursdays to pick up their kids, or those half-day summer Fridays. This partial time off feature lets you get a more accurate picture of what’s in store in the future.
You can also schedule partial time off for Everyone at the company. We hope this insight leads to more accurate schedules and planning. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to the team. Happy scheduling!
