Employees normally have a 60 minute lunch, but one employee had 30 minutes in their timecard, why is this?

When an employee is set to ‘scheduled and must check in/out’, you have the option to set them also to ‘can check in/out on days without a schedule’. When you do this, you must enter their default break and meal breaks. The reason for this is that the system has no way of knowing, since they are not scheduled, how long they will be working. Because of this, we don’t know how much time to allocate based on the setup. So you must specify what they are allowed.

When I try and add a schedule, I receive the error ‘The maximum allowed scheduled time for this department is 8 hours , this schedule exceeds that.’

As part of the rule setup, one of the values you enter is the maximum shift time. This prevents supervisors from over-scheduling employees. If you need to make this change, go to


and edit the department in question.

How to check my schedule

Friday, October 28th, 2011

From the home page, click “View My Schedule” along the bottom menu.

On this page, you will be able to view your schedule for the current month. This schedule will indicate the department you will be working in, as well as the times.

You can also review any requests that have been approved or pending. As well, you will be able to see any personal times that you are unavailable to work, that has been approved by management.

Why can’t I add or edit a schedule

There are 2 reasons why you would be unable to add or edit a schedule.

Reason 1:

If the schedule has been posted, no changes can be made to it. The top right of any posted schedule will alert you if this is the case:

If the schedule has NOT been posted, you can make changes to the schedules and the top right will show:

Reason 2:

Employees who are marked as ‘NOT scheduled and can check in/out at any time’ will show on the schedule page, however they will not have the option to add a schedule (because this option does not allow for schedules).
