Availability preferences let you know when an employee prefers to work. You might need to edit an employee’s availability yourself if the employee communicates preferences to you outside of When I Work.

You can also edit an employee’s availability preferences from your computer or iPhone.


  • You must have supervisor, manager, or admin access privileges to set availability preferences on behalf of an employee.
  • You can add, edit, or delete availability preferences that take place in the future but not preferences that take place in the past or on the current day.
  • Employees can set their their own availability preferences. Encourage them to set their availability preferences from their iPhones, Android phones, or computers.
