Define different rules
To define the break times, navigate to “Configuration” and select “Time tracking” under categories on the left. Here you find the tile “Break rules”. First you see a list of all rules that are currently created in the system. On the left under “Actions” you can create a new rule.
Give the rule a name and check “Active”. Now you can enter in the field “Mode for manual changes” which conditions apply if an employee wants to change his break.
- “No restriction” means that the colleague can adjust the break time as desired.
- If “Identification of individual changes” is selected, the change must be documented.
- “Strict comliance (no underflow)” allows the break to be changed as long as it does not fall below the specified minimum time.
- “Dynamic” means that breaks taken, for example after the end of the first 6 working hours, are still charged against the minimum break. So if you were only able to take a break after 7 hours, this will not be counted as an extra break taken in addition to the automatic minimum break.
In the “Rules” table, you enter the working hours from which a break is to be taken and how long it is to be.
