If you want to apply location-based break rules, learn how to enable the settings for it.

Once the setting is active, you will be able to:

  • Apply break rules on location level
  • Get breaks created automatically on shifts
  • Create paid and unpaid breaks within 'ShiftPlanning' module
  • Get conflicts if managing breaks against the break rule
  • Get reminders for the break start time

Things to know before begin:

  1. You must have a manager/admin access privileges in Humanity to enable location-based break rules.
  2. The 'Break Rule' must be applied next to the location where the shift is created if you want shift breaks to be auto-assigned.
  3. If you want to create customize schedule shift breaks, you must not add break rule next to the location.
  4. Position break rules will not be accessible if you have applied location-based break rules.
  5. If you want to use 'Break' feature with 'Time Clock', using position break rules is recommended.
