Overtime Alerts

You can enable Overtime Alerts to ensure that Admins and Managers receive real-time mobile push alerts when employees enter daily overtime, weekly overtime, or are at risk of weekly overtime.

⚠️To use this feature you will need:

1. To be on The Works plan or higher.
2. To have an active labor POS integration or be using 7punches for time clocking.
3. To have Time Clocking enabled in your account (found at the top menu under 'Time Clocking' or by going to the 7shifts logo > Add-ons)


Enabling Overtime Alerts

1. As an Admin, head to Company Settings > Labor & Compliance.

If you haven't done so already, you'll need to first check the box next to 'Overtime' and set your daily and weekly overtime values.

2. Scroll down and check the box next to 'Overtime Alerts.'     

3. In the drop-down, select an 'Alert Buffer' to ensure you're notified about Weekly Overtime prior to the employee incurring the overtime.

4. Remember to scroll to the bottom of the page and click 'Save.'    

5. Be sure to update your personal notification settings under My Account > Notifications. 

Once Overtime Alerts are set, at-risk warnings will come up anytime an Employee punches in to ensure their Manager is aware of the potential overtime.

Admins and Managers will receive alert notifications as pictured below:

⚠️Managers / Assistant Managers will only receive these alerts for employees assigned to the same Locations and Departments that they are assigned to. Managers / Assistant Managers must also have the “ appear on schedule” setting enabled for these Departments in order to receive these notifications.
⚠️Real-time alerts for this feature are not supported with Heartland Restaurant, Lightspeed, and Upserve POS at this time.
