To do so:

Hit Send

All employees on this schedule will now receive this attachment in their schedule email.

Turning on/off schedules

In Bizimply it is possible to turn schedules on or off in particular locations. It could be that there is no need for a schedule called "Kitchen" in a location where they don't serve food but this is required for another location as they do. 


This ability can also throw up questions like "I used to have a schedule listed but I can no longer find it" but also helps in cases where a manager might ask "I don't need this schedule, how can I remove it?"




Go to the schedule section of your location

Check the drop down list of schedules that are currently on in your location

Click on the orange options icon beside the location name

It will bring you to a section that you can turn on and off listed schedules

If you require one to be added, this ability is restricted to admins, see related articles.

If you go back to the schedule section of your account you will be able to see the listed schedules has updated with the changes you made


How Public Holidays work in Bizimply

 You can select a day to be a bank holiday in the schedule by clicking on the day in the schedule and choosing "Public Holiday". You will notice the day to be highlighted differently as seen in the image below. This would need to be done per location.


What does this mean?

Once a day is set as a Public Holiday in the schedule, it will show all selected paid times for that day in the employee timecards to be included in the P.Hol (Public Holiday) column of the report, and not count as regular hours.


This allows for an easier way of applying a premium rate for staff who happen to work that day. 


Please note those who are owed a day in lieu for the public holiday should be handled separately. Always make sure to contact your payroll department to check what's the best way to handle these.
