Managing Absence Records

Members can manage their own absence record from the Member's Dashboard, but you can also manage it on behalf of your members.

Members who are listed as absent on a certain date will be excluded from role assignments when generating new schedule. However, if a member has already been assigned a role in the current schedule on a day when they know they will be absent, they should access the current schedule and Decline that role online.

Listing Absence Records

To list current absence records, navigate to Members --> Manage Absence:
