Although the scheduling feature packs plenty of different capabilities that should be set on your dashboard, we added some important actions that would be available for you on the go, so you can manage employee schedules when anywhere you are when you are away from your dashboard, directly from your mobile app's admin tab!

Pro tip: To learn more about your mobile admin tab & distributing the app to your employees, click here.

In this article we will go over:

How to access the schedule as an admin from the mobile app:

On your app, click on the Admin tab. Next, on the "Active Assets" list, choose your scheduling asset (may differ by name per company). If you have multiple schedules, you will be directed to a list of all active schedules

How to view and access shifts and jobs:

When you first access the schedule, you'll see this week's agenda. On the scheduled agenda, you can see all assigned shifts and jobs, all unavailabilities per day, badges for shifts statuses, open shifts, and drafts:
