Aggregated Metrics

The normal hours, overtime and short time for each day are calculated based on the budget hours and the shift setup specified for that day. When aggregating the hours for a week, they are categorised based on days of the week. This categorisation includes Weekdays (Monday to Friday), Saturdays, Sundays, and Public Holidays. This approach ensures that the calculation of hours worked, including normal hours and overtime, is accurately aligned with the specific working conditions of each day of the week.

Employee Timeline

To delve into the specifics of an employee's daily activities after generating the employee overview report, simply click on any cell within the table. This action will open a timeline dialog, presenting detailed information for the chosen day. Within this dialog, you have the flexibility to add overrides or input additional information related to the employee for that specific day, offering a comprehensive and interactive way to manage and review individual employee data with ease.

Exceptions

Efficiently managing exceptions in time and attendance data is crucial, and the employee overview report simplifies this task with integrated filters and bulk management tools. This report highlights several key exceptions:

  • Absent: Indicates a lack of employee activity (clocks or piecework) on a day where the budget hours exceed zero and the day is not marked as optional.

  • Missing Clock In/Out: Occurs when an employee has either clocked in without clocking out, or vice versa.

  • Overtime: Identified when the hours worked surpass the day's budget hours.

  • Short Time: Recognized when the hours worked fall short of the day's budget hours.

  • Extended Day: Indicates when an employee's workday extends into the next calendar day.

  • Missing Template: The employee is not linked to a clock template on a specific day. This can be caused because the employee is not linked to a team, or the team the employee is linked to is not associated with a clock template.

    • Missing template on a weekend can be caused when the clock template is not configured for all the days of the week.

    • When configuring clock templates for different seasons of the year make sure that the templates are linked to each calendar month of the year.

Filter exceptions

Click on the exceptions button in the actions section to view the total number of exceptions for all employees in the selected period. Click on one of the exceptions in the list to filter employees and days for the selected exception.

Click on Clear to reset the table to all the information.

Daily Exceptions

Below the date of each column, a summary of all the exceptions will be represented by round colour icons. Hover over these icons to view the types of exceptions and the total number of employees applicable to this exception. Click on these icons to perform bulk actions for each of the exception types.

The following bulk actions are available for each type of exception:

  • Absentees: Add full days, clock ins and outs or add leave for all absent employees

  • Missing clock in or out: Add bulk clock ins or outs for all employees

  • Overtime: Override employee hours and adjust the total hours worked

  • Short time: Override employee hours and adjust the total hours worked

Bulk Overrides

Bulk overrides allow for efficient handling of attendance exceptions in the employee overview report. They can be applied when there are the following exceptions: Absent, Overtime, and Short Time.

How to Add Bulk Overrides

  1. Click on the date exception indicators located at the top of the table, below each date, to access the daily exceptions view.

  2. Navigate to the specific exceptionโ€”Absent, Overtime, or Short Time.

  3. Select the employees affected and click on 'Bulk Override'. You'll then have several options:

    • Default to Budget Hours: This will adjust the total hours to match the budget hours set in the clock template for the selected employees.

    • Set Overtime: Enter the amount of overtime to be added for each employee. Their total hours will be their budget hours plus the provided overtime.

    • Set Short Time: Enter the short time hours to be added for each employee. Their total hours will be their budget hours minus the provided short time.

    • Set the Total Hours: Specify the total hours for the selected employees, which may result in overtime or short time depending on how it compares to the budgeted hours.

Remove all overrides

If you wish to remove all overrides for a given day, click on the gear icon next to the date in the header row and select "Remove all overrides"

Overrides

Total Hours Override

Overrides enable the adjustment of an employee's total daily hours worked, while maintaining the original clocking data. The configured budget hours in the clock template are still used for calculating normal hours and overtime. When overriding the hours, you only provide the total duration that the employee worked; start and end times are not needed.

Overrides can be added in the following two ways:

  • Access the Employee Timeline and clicking on the "Add Override" button.

  • Viewing daily exceptions for overtime and short time. Refer to this section for more information: Daily Exceptions.

When selecting the add override option the following dialog will appear. If the employee has existing information it will be prefilled:

  1. Add overrides for more than one activity. Click here to add an additional line.

  2. Change the existing activity. If the employee have existing information for the day the activities will be pre-populated on this list.

  3. Add a block (Optional): Associate this activity and hours with a specific area or block.

  4. Specify the duration in hours and minutes for this activity. You can specify a duration per activity that will be aggregated to calculate the total hours for the day.

  5. The budget hours for the day as configured on the clock template shift. Overtime or short time will also be indicated here if applicable.

  6. Night shift: If this option is enabled this day will be counted as a night shift on the metrics.

  7. Add or update the current override.

  8. Remove items: Remove all activities and durations for this day.

Add Clock Template (shift) Override

Use this feature to adjust an employee's working hours on a day. Common use-cases include weather disruptions or break alterations.

Use this feature cautiously, as it may impact payroll calculations. When changing the shift on a specific day, it will also affect the total ordinary working hours in the week.

To add a clock template override click on the icon with the three dots in a cell or next to the cogwheel in the date row to add overrides in bulk. Please note that when adding bulk overrides for clock templates all employees in the table will be selected automatically.

Add an override for the shift on the selected day:

Please refer to the clock template section in configuration for more information on how to setup shifts: Clock Templates.
