Job Slots and Assignments Into Them

The Job slots and assignments into them tool lets you define job slots as well as assign people to those slots. The Jobs/slots calendar tool gives you the same information in a graphical representation.

Changes you make in this tool take effect immediately. Before you make a change, though, VSys checks the status of the slot and/or assignment: if it's different from what you see on your screen, VSys will either load in the new information and continue on, or it may stop you with a warning. From there you can re-examine the slot before continuing as the changes may affect your decision to take whatever action you were planning.
