What is Shift?

Shift defines a certain period of work or rest. It is the building block of the roster that contributes to how leave and timesheets are recorded.

What can be defined in Shift?

We have formulas to count the Overtime Minutes, Late in Minutes, Early Out Minutes, Short Minutes, and Meal Count. Please find us for more details.
