How can I set up Automatic Breaks?

What is an Automatic Break?

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

Each position can be tailored to the 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, and 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.

• A worker taking a break during their shift 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.
