While using Advanced Rostering, it is possible to have two or more Roster Types scheduled on the same day. For example, a staff member may need to take annual leave in the morning, but will be working in the afternoon. Another reason would be when scheduling lunch in the Roster so it's counted in the Wages Report.
If you haven't created your Roster Types yet, please visit the Setting up your Roster with Advanced Rostering article. Otherwise simply follow the steps below:
1. Go to your Roster page.
2. In the Operators row, select the green plus button (+) next to their name.
3. In the right side panel, select the Roster Type dropdown menu and select the relevant type (e.g. Annual Leave or a custom Roster Type you have created).
4. Select the day(s) this Roster Type is applicable, fill in the Item Time (i.e. the start and finish time) and then Save once complete. You will see the item added in their row.
5. Now select the green plus button (+) again for the same operator.
6. In the right side panel select Rostered ON (or the Roster Type you have created), and again choose the day(s) this Roster Type is applicable. Fill in the Item Time (i.e. the start and finish time) and then Save once complete.
There will now be two Roster Types for the same operator. You can repeat this process and have as many Roster Types as needed for one day.
Important Note: When you schedule your Roster Types, make sure they don't overlap in time. For example, if you have Rostered On from 9:00am to 3:00pm, and you want to add another Roster Type for the same day, it should be scheduled to start after the previous one ends. In this example, you would schedule it from 3:00pm onwards, ensuring that there is no overlap between the two Roster Types.
Once you have setup multiple Roster Types, here is an example of what it can look like:
As a further example, if you used the Annual Leave or Lunch Roster item, you will see that the Appointments page will be blocked off for the selected times, and the operator will be free to take appointments or tasks for the rest of the day where they are Rostered On. Here is an example of what this can look like:
