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