Schedule Shift Breaks

This feature enables managers to create scheduled breaks for their staff members within each created shift. 

This helps keep staff members organized and makes it easy for managers to make sure that their employees are not all taking breaks at the same time.

To add breaks to your staff shifts, click on the shift you’ve created and then click on the break icon (coffee mug) next to the employee’s name.

While created breaks can’t be edited, you can easily delete a break by double-clicking the marker. You can then simply create a new one.

Once these changes to the shift have been published, your employees will be notified of their assigned break times. 

Note: This feature is not directly connected to the Time Clock module. However, managers can ask their employees to clock in and out of breaks through Time Clock so that they can make sure that their employees are taking breaks according to the assignments.​

Just make sure that breaks have been enabled under Settings > Time Clock.
