When an employee is scheduled for a full day, but is spilt between 2 departments, does the system recognize the full shift and allot the proper meal and break periods?

If you have an employee that is scheduled for a full day, 8AM to 5PM, but is split between 2 departments, how do you have the system recorgnize this? There are two ways you can achieve this:

Method 1:

Create 2 separate shifts, one for each department the employee is working in. Add one shift from 8AM to 12PM and the other 1PM to 5PM (assuming they have a lunch from 12PM to 1PM)

Method 2:

Create 1 shift for the full day and in the NOTES, mention the department they will switch into, ie. ‘After lunch, cover hardware’.
