Access: The minimum permissions required to add and edit Non Contact and Duty Codes are found within the Curriculum Module of Config>Setup>Roles & Permissions.
Non-Contact time is often assigned within a Timetable Model and as such, will be automatically imported to the system, but more can be created if needed.
Additional Non Contact and Duty Codes that you create can be used on staff timetables for things such as lunch duty.

Creating a new Non Contact and Duty Code
First, go to Config>Curriculum and click on Staff Non-Contact and Duty Codes.
To create a new Code, select the New button.
Add the Code Name and Description.
Select the Save button to save the Code.
A new Code has Active ticked by default but Cover Required is not default.
Important: If you do not tick Cover Required, assigning this Code to a staff member without a Lesson will not prevent them from showing as available on Arrange Cover for these periods.
If you want the Code to prevent the staff member from being available on Arrange Cover, tick Cover Required so that assigning it to them means that are not available for anything else.
Editing an existing Non Contact and Duty Code
To Edit an existing Code, select the Code from the list and click the Edit button.
This will open the details of the Code on the right, which you can then amend.
Make any changes then click the Save to update the Code.
