Busy Bunny's dedicated employee app allows employees to communicate their availability so that the Manager is able to schedule accordingly. 

When employees submit their availability, they are telling you when they cannot work.  Instant notifications allow Managers to more efficiently manage team members' time based on when they can work.  

  While employees will be able to manage their availability through through the employee app, managers will also have the ability to enter and/or make edits to  employee availability through the manager app.
