Using calendar alerts, a Controller can display messages onto the employees’ Calendar to advise on important events and/or discourage taking holidays on those dates. Only controllers can setup calendar alerts.
You can setup calendar alerts as follows –
You can also edit and update alerts from this area.
Go to> > .
Click on the Calendar alert button to add a new alert.
Enter the details of the alert. Then enter the date, or date range, in which you want the alert to appear. In the example below, employees are advised of a Christmas shutdown from 23rd of December 2016 to 29th of December 2016.
Choose an alert colour (red, yellow or green) to establish the importance of the alert. Click the Add calendar alert button when done.
Within the Config area, you can also choose whether holiday managers are notified when an employee requests holiday on a date where there is a Calendar alert.
The alerts themselves do not stop someone booking a holiday, but will discourage unnecessary bookings.
The alert is now visible to everyone, as seen in> > .
