Tip Tuesday – Adjusting Day Start Time

Welcome back to Tip Tuesday! This week we will be talking about the tips and tricks to adjusting the daily start time for your company. The main purpose of this setting is so that the hours will be calculated for the correct days according to your company policies.

If your company starts it’s day at a time other than midnight this feature will be very useful. For example, if your store opens at 7am and closes at 11pm, but your employees don’t get out until after midnight you may want those hours after midnight to be counted for the day before. That is where this rule will come in handy. It’s important to note that all of the hour calculation is done in the background; therefore, the current schedule will still look the same and will always start with 12am.

See below for the setting in general options that must be changed:

For this example I have changed the daily start time to 7 am. Therefore, if employees work after midnight any hours before 7am will still count for the day before. You can see this working as described in the image below:

As you can see in the above photo, all 7 hours prior to 7am are recorded for the previous day; while the one hour after 7am is recorded for the current day. However, even if all of the hours are recorded for the previous day, like in the picture below, the shift will still show on the current day.
