Work Attributes


Work Attributes allow you to  create and enter particular working descriptions / instructions for your staff members on any given working day as a Name / Label type attribute. Attributes can consist of things such as - Conference at London Excel or Health and Safety training course.

These Work Attributes can also represent Competencies / Skill Levels that can be assigned to staff to help managers plan their work load and also are crucial for Task Planning when using the add-on module Task Planner, see the separate Competencies / Skills article for more.

To create some Attributes as a Name / Label you can.

  • From the Work Menu click Work Attributes
  • Click Create New Attribute
  • Select the Type as Name / Label
  • Enter the Name and click Save
These created Attributes will then be able to be applied to any specific working day in the Work Planner. 
To apply some attributes to a staff members working time you can,
  • From the Work Menu click Work Planner
  • Use the Group drop-down box to select your required staff members
  • Click on a required Date Cell where a staff member has working time
