Working patterns are what you use to help set what hours employees should be working. There may be times you need to create a new working pattern, for example, for employees who work part-time hours.

  1. Click your name in the top right, then click Settings.

  2. On the settings menu click TIMESHEETS, then click Working patterns.

  3. To create a new working pattern click ADD NEW.

    To edit an existing working pattern click on the pencil icon on that working pattern.

  4. Select the working days

  5. For each working day type in what time work starts and what time work ends.

  6. If required, for each working day type in what time break starts and what time break ends.

  7. Once you have typed in the hours, at the bottom it will give you the total number of hours in that working pattern.

  8. If required, scroll down to ‘Additional parameters’ to set a default working day duration, e.g. seven hours. Specifying the full-time duration will enable overtime calculation only after the employee’s worked hours reach the value entered.

  9. Click SAVE.

Below is an example of a working pattern.

📌TIP: Applying a default working duration is a useful way set up your timesheets so that employees on part-time working patterns get overtime rates when they’ve worked the same hours in a day as a full-time employee. If the full-time duration is, for example, set to five hours, then overtime will start after those five hours if an employee is still working.
