|Select 'Manage Rosters' from the 'Rostering' menu.|
|You will now see a list of the rosters.|
Click on the one you wish to edit.
|Now click onto the 'Roster Operations' tab.|
|You will now see the "Roster Setup Details" box.|
Just above the 'Save' and 'Reset' buttons you will see "Availability Window:"
|There are radio buttons to open and close the availability on demand.|
To open availability: - Select "NOW OPEN"
To close availability: - Select "NOW CLOSED"
Then click on 'Save'.
Upon saving the availability open there will also be an option to 'advise everyone in the department that the availability has opened'.
|HOPS can also be programmed to open and close availability in advance.|
The open and close dates can be selected and saved. Users will be advised by email when the availability entry window opens and shortly before it closes.
|Note that HOPS will only collect availability for dates on which turns exist, so ensure that you have constructed the roster (inserted all the turns) before opening availability.|
HOPS is continually being developed and updated. Sometimes the screen shots in these help files might lag behind the most up-to-date views of the screens. Generally, however, the functionality of the page will be the same, albeit with a slightly different format or layout.
Thank you very much indeed to Emma Patrick
