Before we get into "How to assign Weekly Off cycles", we need to remember 2 import points mentioned below:

  1. Weekly Offs are assigned at user level (i.e. employee level). 
    This means: You can create unlimited number of Weekly Off cycles, but each Weekly Off cycle will function only when it is "assigned to the desired/required employee". If a Weekly Off cycle is created but not assigned, it's as good as a week with 7 Mondays! :)
  2. Editing/Changing an existing Weekly Off cycle, will affect ALL employees who're already assigned that Cycle
    This means: You are allowed to edit any existing Weekly Off cycle at any time, but always keep in mind that any changes to the Cycle will affect the employees who're already assigned that Weekly Off(s).
