Absence Tracking

The absence / holidays planner in Chronos is based on the familiar Outlook calendar. You can see information for an engineer at a glance in day, week, working week, month or year views. The key at the bottom left tallies with the colours of entries in the calendar, allowing you to quickly see what types of absence are recorded. This can help plan work schedules and assist in spotting absence patterns.

Screen shot 1 shows the absence for one engineer. If others have absence planned on the selected dates (selected by using the calendar at the top left), these are shown in the grid marked Engineer Absence. Clicking one of these will bring up that engineer's planned absence. These details are also used by Chronos when Allocating a Job to check that the engineer is actually available on the selected date.

The second screen shot shows the dialogue for creating / amending an entry.
