Access from your: Computer
Applies to: Managers, Schedulers, Employees with managing permissions over specific positions
Users can create unpaid lunch breaks in a few simple steps right from the ShiftPlanning module.
Things to know before you begin:
- You must have a Manager/Admin, and Scheduler account privileges to manage shift breaks.
- This option is not directly related to the Time Clock module. Therefore, employees still need to clock in and out of scheduled breaks using this module.
- Unpaid breaks will be deducted/effective and shown under Payroll.
Adding Unpaid Lunch Shift Breaks
Step 1: Go to “ShiftPlanning” tab in the top panel.
Step 2: Choose “Schedule Overview” from the left-hand side filter panel.
Step 3: Create a shift or click on an existing shift to open the Shift Edit window.
Step 4: Click the “Manage Breaks button” within the “Breaks” section of the Shift Edit window.
Step 5: Click on the timeline to designate a start time for the break. You will be prompted to determine the length of the break and define whether it is paid or unpaid.
Step 6: Save your defined breaks and click “Save & Close” to confirm all changes.
