Deputy Locations

When scheduling a worker to a shift, it is important for the worker to know the location of the shift. This is especially import when the worker is attending client premises.

Locations may relate to a client premises, an agency office, or another location.

If a location will be scheduled in relation to a client service or activity it must be set up in your CDS Database.

If the location is only required for internal purposes (e.g. Team Meetings) you will need to create the location directly in Deputy.

  • Create Location in CDS Database
  • Create Location in Deputy

When created in the CDS Database, the location will be sent through to Deputy with the first shift scheduled at that location.
