New! Request Cut-Off Setting
Schedulers can now set the cut-off date for provider off and shift requests to a specific number of days prior to the start date of a schedule period.
This new feature is designed for locations with schedule periods that do not begin on the first day of a calendar month. It allows the scheduler to not worry about creating new periods in advance in order to adjust the cut-off date.
Here’s an example:
A location with 4-week schedule periods had set its Tangier default cut-off date to the “15th day, 2 months prior.” At times, two periods might begin in the same month and therefore, have the same cut-off date – e.g., periods begin on July 2 and July 30, with May 15 being the cut-off date for both.
With this new feature, the location can now set the request cut-off to exactly 45 days prior, so the July 2 period’s cut-off would be May 18, July 30 period’s cut-off would be June 15, and so on.
To change a request cut-off date in the Tangier Sky Scheduler View:
- Go to the Location page.
- Select the General tab.
- Click the Schedule bar to display the options.
- Select the radio button and enter the number of days.
- Click Save.
For locations that are part of a schedule group, the cut-off for all can be updated to the same date via the Group page General tab under Provider Limits.
