MSP Procedure: Updating your scheduling preferences and the "Unavailable dates / times" on your MSP Profile

Many thanks for your participation and support to the services at the Cathedral.  Please spend a few minutes each quarter logging into Ministry Scheduler Pro to indicate your availability for the system to create a new schedule for your liturgical ministry.   

After Logging onto the Web Terminal, on the "My Profile" page, please scroll down to the Ministry & Scheduling section to add your preferred scheduling frequency, preferred services, scheduling restrictions and unavailable dates/times (click the image to enlarge)

We have provided the following examples on how to enter unavailable dates/times for the regular Sunday services as well as special services.  

1. Can't serve at regular Sunday service (8 am or 10 am) on a date or a date range.  

lease use the combination of "for a specific service" and "At this shift" to specify a date or a date range. Please only enter dates within the requested scheduling period.  When appropriate, please try to always use this combination to provide your date(s) so that you won't block any special services unintentionally.  Please Click "OK and Add Another" if you wish to enter more data. Otherwise, click "OK" to complete the entries. (click on the image to enlarge)

2.  Can't serve at a special service. Please select a special service from the "At this shift" drop down list. On that list, you will only see services that you are qualified to serve. Please only select a service within the requested scheduling period. Click "OK and Add Another" if you wish to enter more data. Otherwise, click "OK" to complete the entries. (click on the image to enlarge)

3.  Can't serve at any services on a date or a date range.  Please select "during the date range" or "on the following date" as the option. This will block all the services within that period.  Please only enter date(s) within the requested scheduling period.  Click "OK and Add Another" if you wish to enter more data.  Otherwise, click "OK" to complete the entries.  (click on the image to enlarge)

Once you click the "OK" button as in the examples above, you will see all your entries as following.  You may make more changes by selecting any date(s) and click “Remove” or “Edit.” You must click the Submit button at the bottom of this page for your request to be processed.  You can go back and change the dates at any time before the scheduling deadline.
