The Shifts tab allows you to view and create shifts, which define the most common start and end times employees may be assigned to in your rosters.
You can have as many shifts as you need to cover your standard start and end times. These default start and end times will be used when creating Roster Plans, but can still be edited on individual shifts as needed when your roster is loaded.
To make a new shift, go to Manage > Shifts > New Shift. Set a Shift Name and the Start Time and End Time.
Under Additional Settings you can also manage how the shift should be treated when employees clock in and out:
Strict Start - When ticked, employees who are rostered to work against this shift will have their start time snapped to the rostered start time rather than their actual clock in time, if they clock in up to one hour earlier than expected.
Strict End - When ticked, employees who are rostered to work against this shift will have their end time snapped to the rostered end time rather than their actual clock out time, if they clock out later than the rostered end time.
Default Break Duration - If an employee clocks in and out for this shift but doesn't take a break using the time clock, the default break duration will be applied. If they do take a break using the time clock their recorded break time will be used instead.
