This section provides the basic setup of shifts and does not go into detailed usage of shifts in the system. A minimum of one shift in the system is needed even if you do not plan on using features available for Shifts. The Setup Wizard imports a rapidstart file that creates an MF8 sample shift.
Shifts can be used for:
- attendance reporting
- configuring rounded payroll time
- calculating overtime
- automatic breaks
- tracking shift changes
Note: This represents the paid time, so if a person is expected to be on-site for 9 hours, but paid for 8, input 8.
When complete, the Expected Regular Time (Hours) in the top right should reflect the total expected regular hours for the week before overtime applies, and the expected Attendance time should total the expected overall attendance time for the week.
If a worker has unpaid break time, unpaid lunches, or other unpaid activities, the expected attendance time may exceed the expected regular paid time.
