Individual or Team Business Hours

We have implemented an enhancement to our Business Hours rules that will enable you to assign unique rules to specific employees or teams. They way it used to be was to assign Business Hours to the whole company, but now you can easily do it for individuals.

Start by going to the Administration tab and selecting "Manage Business Hours":

Then, on the next screen, you will find all the rules that you have created, if you wish to apply a rule for the whole company, you can always use the "Default" option. To create a new individual rule, click on the "Add" button:

On the next screen you will be able to select the Business Hours, make sure to give this rule a name in the "Description" field. Leave blank any of the time fields that don't apply. By clicking on the blank section on the "Select User(s)" and "Select Team(s)" fields, you will enable a dropdown menu where you can select the users and teams that apply to this rule.

When you are done, click on Save.

The next time you come to the Manage Business Hours section, you will find your newly created rule listed with the existing ones:

Timecard GPS: Premium Pay Answers Report

The Premium Pay Answers Report is a very useful new report that will enable employers using the Premium Pay features to have a detailed summary of what employees have answered on each question.

Here is a sample of the kind of data you will be able to retrieve:

Not only you will get each task and break sorted by the time when employees took each, but the last two columns will tell you if one of the answers chosen after finishing a break triggered the possibility of Premium Pay, as well as the reason why.

On the above example, we see that the employee took a Rest Break at 8:15 AM and a Meal Period at 12:00 PM. On both cases, the employee finished the rest/meal before the expected time, on the Rest Break, it was due to his/her own election, but on the Meal Period, it had to be ended due to work requirements, so it triggered the Premium Pay flag, as noted by the "Y" in the "Triggered?" column.

We hope this new tool enables you to keep better track of your employees Premium Pay related answers and that it serves as a complement to all the Premium Pay tools we have added along the way.

Feel free to leave us a comment if you have any question.
