Capability for Mobile App to display the same Availability numbers that are displayed on the Web App

The Mobile App only has the capability to show Availability from Jan. 1. We have several jurisdiction that do not track Availability this way. The Mobile App needs to match the same percentage that is used on the Web App.

For example, one jurisdiction uses a 12 month rolling callout percentage that is suppled to ARCOS every two weeks. The Mobile App needs to display the same values and not calculate Availability from Jan. 1

Based on feedback from our linemen, is it possible to either allow a date range choice or have pre-defined time periods in a menu (rolling 12 month, rolling 6 month, current month, calendar year, etc), and allow them to choose what they'd like to see?

Hello, 

Trying to dig into this a bit further, do you limit what they can see for any reason, or is allowing them to choose an option something that would work for everyone.  Maybe let them select a default view and can select other options as needed.

Within our company the info isn't limited- they have the clerks run reports out of desktop for the range they're interested in today. I think having a default view but having options would be fine. Would the default view be a "global" setting that everyone would have, or do you mean default at the individual user level within the app itself? So one person's default might be a monthly view, but another's would be a six-month rolling view? But everyone could have the option to choose any of the available time periods?

I would like to know what you think would be valuable.  I tend to be on the side of letting individuals set their own defaults.

I am fine with the individual setting their own default. I'm assuming you will only let the user see his own availability and not others. 

With that being said, would the Supervisors be able to access their entire team's availability? If not, that would be nice also :)

Agree with Jim on individual default's; we have 3 collective bargaining agreements with somewhat different availability rules. Individual defaults gives best flexibility. Also like Jim's idea on Supervisors seeing the whole team.
