Manage Areas is an advanced setting for Enterprise users only - it is recommended to talk to your CSM or implementation team before using this.
Manage Areas is a feature designed to allow finer control of which managers can schedule and approve timesheets for particular areas in a location.
An example use case for this is if someone manages a particular team within a store - they can be set to only roster and approve timesheets for that area of the store, and not be able to do this for the rest of the areas in that overarching location.
Manage Areas is visible in the Employment tab of an employee profile - to edit it, press the Edit button.
Once in the Edit mode, you can press the tickbox to enable Managed Areas for the employee. Use the add area drop down to add more areas to the list, and see above areas already added.
Permission permitting, this will allow the employee to schedule and approve timesheets for any worker who works in the selected areas, and exclude the other areas. It is not recommended to use this setting unless it is practical to maintain this relationship. Note that if the employee does not have the permissions to approve timesheets or roster, or has the permissions to do this for all areas, the Managed Areas function will not do anything.
If no areas are added, it is assumed the employee can manage all areas they are assigned to work at.
