How do I tag an Employee as a Resource Type?

An employee can be used as a Resource, just like any Resource that you create (How do I add a new Resource?)

Therefore, to allow flexibility, an Employee can also be also tagged as a Resource type, in the same way a Resource can (How do I add a new Resource Type?)

To tag an Employee as a Resource Type, choose Manage > Employees > List

Click the Edit icon against the Employee’s name  

Click on the Resource Types tab

Use the checkboxes to select which Resource Type/s you would like to add to this Employee

Please note: if you have not created any Resource Types, this section will be blank

Click Save

A Resource type can then be added to a Service (How do I link a Resource / Resource Type to a Service?)

An example of this would be a scenario of where a second employee is required for a service:

  1. Create a Resource Type called 'Assistant'
  2. Tag all employees that are available as an assistant with the Resource Type 'Assistant'
  3. Add the 'Assistant' Resource Type to any Service that requires an assistant to be assigned
