Trying to capture in late and out early time and not just "undertime"

Post by webmaster » Tue Mar 19, 2019 1:25 am

Hello,
We are using TT Community version 11.5.0 automatically installed on a windows server in the USA - ohio. Love it.

We have a docking policy for those who show up late or leave early. The TT schedule policy feature is able to capture shift "undertime" but not in late or out early time. In some instances these would be the same, however with our unpaid break policy, an employee could be 30min late, but not take their 30min break and it would not count as "undertime" , additionally an employee could be 30min late, but stay 30min after and "undertime" would not be triggered. Currently we handle enacting the policy using report exports, spreadsheets, and paystub amendments.

Just wanted to throw this out there in case anyone knew of any easier / more elegant solutions to this. If there is not currently a better way then this may want to be considered as a future feature suggestion.

I'm not sure I understand what you are looking for. What you described seems to be exactly what our undertime schedule policy functionality currently does. Can you please provide more detailed examples of what you are looking for?

Hi mikeb. Here is an example :
1) Fred is scheduled to work at 9am - 5pm (8 hours)
2) Fred punches in at 9:20am
3) Fred punches out at 5:20pm

Fred was 20min late so he should receive 20 min of penalty time but since he still worked 8 hours (9:20a - 5:20p) , no under-time is logged.

TimeTrex doesn't have any policies that would deduct time exactly how you mentioned. However rounding policies may get your fairly close to what you want by rounding the In punch to something like 9:30AM, or rounding the out punch to 5:00PM.
