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, from the Manage screen tap Resource Types, then tap on the relevant Resource Type (or create a new Resource Type)
Use the Enable Buttons in the Employees section to de-select/re-select which Employee you would like to tag with this Resource Type
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
