Available Hours

 Generates craft and trades personal hours

Available Hours tab allows Sockeye users to update and make changes to employees and craft work schedules  to generate the total number of hours that can be scheduled within the team, manages day to day planned and unplanned work and assists with scheduling KPI’s quickly and effectively.

The primary goal for the available hours tab is to capture the total hours at the craft and personal level in order to effectively assign the correct amount of work.

It is important to start with UPDATEING the Available Hours to generate the total number of hours that can be scheduled within the team.
