< How do I Set Up my Staff for Shift Working? < Record Staff Shifts

Click ADMIN > SETTINGS > Timecard Settings

The purpose of shifts is to help sitters to easily record time periods during which all activity is payable and exclude periods of time that are unpaid, such as lunchtimes or extended breaks in between visits, which could include any non-work related appointments.​

When enabled, this function will allow staff to "start shift" and "end shift". For example, a typical morning might look like this:

  • 9:00am - start shift

  • 9:00am - check in to Job 1

  • 9:30am - check out of Job 1

  • 9:30am - travel to Job 2

  • 9:45am - check in to Job 2

  • 10:15am - check out of Job 2

  • 10:15am - travel to Job 3

  • 10:30am - check in to Job 3

  • 11:00am - check out of Job 2

  • 11.00am - end shift

Note: None of the shift working functions will work unless this setting is enabled.

How do I enable staff to record their shifts?

  • Check the option for "Record Staff Shifts".

  • Click "Update".
