Qualifying an employee for a category item can be used in conjunction with the qualification rule, to ensure that employees are only scheduled where they are qualified. You can enter a rank which can be used in conjunction with  the rank rule, to prefer employees who are better suited for certain tasks, departments, areas, etc. when using auto-scheduling features. Qualifications and ranks have no effect unless the corresponding rule has been added in the Rules section.

 

You can also add a pay rate to these employees to change their hourly wage when working in this area. This feature will only work if payroll is selected for that category item.
