The objective of this tutorial is to help you understand how to edit shift breaks, while ensuring compliance requirements are met.


Access from your: Computer
Applies to:
Managers, Supervisors, Schedulers and Employees with Schedulers Permissions.

Change time for shift breaks by editing (if needed) that you scheduled your staff for keeping your staff members organized.

Things to know before you begin:

  1. You must have a Manager/Admin, Supervisor, Scheduler or Employee with scheduler permission account privileges to edit shift breaks.

  2. 'Enable location-based break rules to automatically create paid and unpaid breaks' must be enabled under 'Settings' module.

  3. The 'Break Rule' must be applied to the Location where the shift is created if you want shift breaks to be auto-assigned.

  4. If breaks are not compliant with the break rule, break conflicts will pop-up.

  5. If you want to create customize schedule shift breaks, you must not add break rule next to the location.

  6. Break conflicts must be enabled under 'Conflicts' tab from 'Settings' module.

  7. Position break rules will not be accessible if you have applied location-based break rules.

  8. If you want to use 'Break' feature with 'Time Clock', using position break rules is recommended.
