Work Shift Rules
Work shift rules are used to compute how many hours an employee worked fall into each defined work shift. Before setting up your work shift policies you need to define your work shifts, on the System > General > Work Shifts page. The Work Shifts topic has more information.
When configuring your work shift rules you can specify the following properties:
This is the list of enabled work shifts for this policy. Work shifts are global objects, but you can selectively enable/disable different ones for each policy. For instance, you might have two different night shifts: one from 10PM-6AM for employees at one location, and one from 12AM-8AM at another location. You can then create two policies and enable the appropriate night shift for each policy.
Shift Hours Depend On
This property determines how a work time entry has its hours associated with the appropriate work shift. The possible options are:
1. Each Shift Worked
Hours are proportioned into each shift that the time entry falls on. For instance, if all 8 hours are worked in Shift 1 then all 8 hours are associated with Shift 1. But, instead, if half the work was in Shift 1 and the other half in Shift 2 then each would get 4 hours.
2. Largest Shift Worked
All work hours are put into the work shift that had the most hours. For instance, if an employee worked 8 hours, with 2 hours in Shift 1 and 6 hours in Shift 2, then Shift 1 would get zero hours and Shift 2 would get 8 hours.
3. First Shift Worked
All work hours are put into the first work shift. For instance, if an employee worked 8 hours, with 2 hours in Shift 1 and 6 hours in Shift 2, then Shift 1 would get 8 hours and Shift 2 would get zero hours.
