With Placeholders, you can add virtual users to Scheduling. This means that you can schedule people that are not yet a part of your organisation, or you just want to plan ahead and see if you should look for new teammates.

Placeholders can be assigned a role and a cost rate, so you can see how their assignments will impact your budgets.

To add Placeholders, go to Settings > Placeholders. Click on Add Placeholder to create a virtual user:

First, make sure you give the virtual user a name, then set the planned salary and click Create:

To take it a bit further, you can use Placeholders in Insights as well, for example in Capacity & Availability Insight:

To edit a Placeholder, simply go to Settings > Placeholders where you can rename it, change the colour scheme and change the cost rate as well.
