  • The week available times should start on Sunday and end on Saturday
  • For each day of the week there should be 2 columns - one for start time and one for end time of available period (for example - MyEmployee B is available on Sunday from 10:00 to 20:00)
  • If employee is unavailable for the whole day - in first column of the respective day of the week please put company  the short name of  the week day (for example: TUE) and next column leave empty
  • Time format in CSV / Excel file must match with current Time format format on application (To check your current Time Format Settings, please go to My Account - Company Information)
