Future off Requests

To help with long term schedule planning (such as coordinating summer vacation times), ByteBloc allows providers to enter off requests up to five years in advance. Select the 'Provider' tab > 'Future off Requests' to access this screen. Future off Requests are transferred to the 'Shift Requests' screen when the associated request schedule is available. You will receive email notification of each and every 'Future off Requests'.

View List







Note: 'Future off Requests' for prior schedules can be retrieved in the Future off Request 'View List' (tabular view). From the view, a report for the requests is available through the use of the table export tool.

  1. A 'Need off' request is removed (i.e., the provider is marked as available)

  3. A 'Need off' request is changed to a 'Wish off' request

  5. The number of requests allowed in any given day is increased for the location

Note: The conversion of future off requests from 'need off' to 'wish off' is indicated in the future off request calendar as part of the tool tips for the requests


Note: 'W(N)' is now shown when a 'Need off' request is converted to 'Wish off'



Optional: If required by your schedule administrator, you can make your 'Need off' requests for the day more specific by holding down the appropriate letter key before clicking the date; 'A' for admin, 'C' for CME, 'X' for personal, 'V' for vacation and click the menu at the same time.
