In this blog post we want to talk about the new options we just added to overtime rules.
This will be useful in case you need to include weekends in your overtime calculations, so now you can set any hours on Saturday and Sunday to be either overtime or double time as desired.
To do this, go to the "Manage Overtime Rules" screen within the "Integration" section in the Administration tab:
Then, select the user type you want to apply the rule for, in this case, we want to do it for the "Field Technicians":
Next, click on the "Add New" button to create the new rule:
The following is an example of how the overtime and double time rules can be setup:

In this case, we have applied our rules like this:
- Any time the user has more than 8 hours per day
- Any time the user has more than 40 hours per week
- Any time the user works on a Saturday
Double time (Extratime)
- Any time the employee has more than 12 hours on a day
- If the user worked on a Sunday
Also note right on the top that we applied the rule to start from January 1st, 2019. This is very important since anything prior to the day you select here will not enforce this overtime rules.
We hope you can use these new options to your advantage, let us know if you have any questions or comments.
