Clock in and out for Breaks
You can enable the ability for Employees to clock in and out for their breaks in order to ensure labor compliance.
Here's how to enable this in your 7shifts account (Admins only):
Hover over the profile picture in the top right corner, then select Company Settings > Add-ons > 7shifts > Time Clocking - 7punches Settings
Check the box next to 'Allow breaks'
Once the breaks feature is enabled, you can select your break type. Choose if your breaks will be paid or unpaid.
If you would like some breaks to be paid and others to be unpaid, select 'Multiple'.
To select your Break type, click the drop-down menu and select your preferred type.
To add a break, click the green add button and fill in the Break type, Break name, Break length, Shift length and Enforced requirements to adhere to your labor laws. Then click save.
At the beginning of their shifts, Employees clock in as they normally would with their unique punch ID. When it's time for their break, the Employee will punch in again and will be presented with this screen:
Once the Employee returns from their break, they simply punch in again and will see how long they were on break for:
Admins, as well as Managers with the 'Can manage time punches' permission enabled, can see the breaks as they happen by clicking the 'Clock' icon at the top of the screen, then selecting the appropriate Pay Period.
