A new dialog box will appear where you can choose the members of staff you wish to assign the working pattern to. Once you have added all the staff members, click on Assign. It will then tell you how many employees are assigned to that working pattern.
Now if you go to that staff member's profile and click on More and then on their working patterns tab
you will see their new working pattern
Please note: Existing working patterns for selected employees will not be removed, you must do this manually by clicking on past working patterns and deleting each one. If your employee has changed their working pattern part way through the year and has already taken holiday using their old working pattern, then do not delete the old pattern as this will affect their holiday allowance
