Please note: If you do not have the option to add a rotating work pattern (as shown below), please contact 

To create a new rotating work pattern within People™, please follow the steps below:

1. Go to 'Settings'

2. Select 'Holidays and Absence'

3. Click on the dropdown list for 'Default Work Pattern' (weekly) and select 'Add new work pattern'

4. The first option you have is a drop down list showing all of the current work patterns. You can use this drop down list to select and copy/clone an existing work pattern which you can then amend if you wish

5. Name your work pattern accordingly

6. You should then specify how many hours this employee works per day and also specify how many days holiday will be taken from the employee’s holiday entitlement for that working day. For example, an 8 hour day would typically equate to 1 days holiday if booked off, however a 4 hour working day may only equate to 0.5 of a day, therefore only a half a days holiday would be taken if a holiday is requested

7. The 'Start', 'End' and 'Break' fields are not required, however these can be entered for reference purposes

8. To add a rotation, click on 'Add Week' at the bottom and this will copy over the existing weeks details. Edit this as required to include the weeks days and hours worked. Should the employee/s not work any hours in that particular week then leave it blank

9. You can add as many rotating weeks as you wish here/

11. Click on 'Save' and then this work pattern can then be selected for a specific employee

12. To add this, enter the required employees record and enter the planner

13. Choose the new work pattern from the drop down list and enter the effective date. Then choose which week the employee is working when the work pattern started

14. Click on 'Save'
