The required time rule sets the time period within a day when employees must be at work. All violations of the rule are marked as missing time and presented with the purple line. The required time period is presented with the thick blue line on the views and violations are presented with  

There are two types of the rule available: 

  • The required time by days defines the required time for each day in a week. 

  • The equals to paid time defines the required time to be the same as paid time.

1. Go to Settings/Global Time Rules/System Rules view and select Required Time

  Note: If you do not see the view, contact your account administrator to give you appropriate permissions.

2.1 Select the Edit button and select the appropriate rule type.

If the required time by days type is selected, set shift start values for each day in a week.

The duration parameter defines the amount of time in a shift that counts as required time. The start offset parameter moves the required time period to the right side of the shift start. If the value is not set then the required time starts at the same time as the shift. 

Additional, you can set different parameters for days that are marked as holidays.

If the rule is disabled, there will be no violations of the required time in the system.

2.2 If equals to paid time type is selected, the required time is the same as paid time for each day in a week. 

Additional, you can set the tolerance at arrival/departure. The tolerance parameter sets the grace period after the beginning and before the end of required time in which employees are allowed to clock in or out. 

If the Affect paid time option is selected, the paid time will be shortened for the amount of tolerance at arrival/departure.

3. Finish the process by selecting the Save button. The Period selection dialogue will appear where you select from what point in time the rule will be valid. Select the appropriate time point and select the Save button.
