Days based patterns will allow you to simply specify the days - from Monday to Friday. These patterns work based on days based absence type(s), as the booking method will relate to the configuration of the pattern.  


If you wish to create a new Days' based pattern, please refer to the below: 


  • Navigate to:
    •  Admin > Global > Rota Set Up.
  • Press the blue Add Rota Pattern button at the top of the page.
  • Set a distinctive name for the new rota pattern. A description can be added also.
  • If your rota pattern recurs on a weekly basis, select Weekly Pattern and then specify how many weeks are in your rota pattern, below. If your rota pattern recurs on a specific number of days, select Custom Pattern and then specify how many days are in your rota pattern, below.
  • Set the Calendar Day View for the rota pattern. This setting determines the time period that is represented for each day on the calendar display.
  • For each day of your rota pattern, set the working period by selecting one of Not working, Full day, Half day (AM), or Half day (PM).
  • At the bottom of the page press, the orange Save button.
