Would an expression such as "man the desk at all times" mean something like "ocupate del escritorio en todo momento"?

Regards,

    Yes, Robbie. You are right. To man the desk at all times" means that someone should always be at that desk.

    kidika: To man means to have an employee available. Personally I don't like it because it's sexist like manpower
