What is an Automatic Break?

This is a feature that allows you to add an automatic break to a shift.

Each position can be tailored to the amount of time needed before a break is auto-added to a worker's shift.


Creating a break
Start by selecting the relevant position in the Positions tab, scroll down to Automatic Breaks which is just above Qualified Workers for this Position.

After toggling this setting you will be presented with two drop down menus. The first allows you to select the time needed for a worker to hit before a break is added to their shift.

The second menu allows you to select the break length.

After selecting your shift and break lengths don't forget to hit save!

Things to remember
• Each setting is unique to that position.

• If a worker takes a break during their shift that will override this setting.

• If you create a manual time entry - automatic breaks will not apply so please add break times when creating time entries.
