Types of schedules
These are the different types of schedules that can be in the company. There are days that are holidays and you do not have to work, there are days that are weekend and you do not have to work, days with tomorrow time, days with afternoon hours, etc.
There are also days when workers start in the afternoon and end their working day in the early hours (typical in bars and restaurants). Other days start the night of the previous day and end at 07:00 or 08:00 in the morning.
GesFicher allows you to define the different types of schedules, assigning them different colors so that you can easily identify each workday. In the calendar option you can indicate for each day the type of time that corresponds to it.
Users with admin permission will be able to manage the types of schedules.
On the main screen of maintaining time types you can register types of schedules and search for some existing type to modify or delete it.
