The Cross Branch Scheduling function allows the user to allocate employees from one branch into events occurring in locations in another branch.  

NOTE: If you require this functionality it will need to be enabled at the database, contact the Support Desk who can do this for you.  


Once the function has been enabled you will need to create a Cross Branch Allocate role in the Administration application.

When assigning the role to users, you specify the branches from which employees can be used.

You will also need to ensure that you have set up the reason codes that you wish to use when Cross Allocating employees, this is done in the Administration application.


To allocate an employee from a different branch:

Open the Schedule application.

Select Schedule Data.

Select the location required.

Select the event/events affected.
