Shifts define the days and times the workers are expected to work for a particular position.

Depending on an organization's needs, shifts may be simple and only include the typical working days in a week (Monday - Friday), or they might be more complex and include specific work days, hours, and start times and/or end times.

Shifts are associated to rate schedules, which are groupings of rates that apply to a position. Rates for workers can change based up differing shifts, so Shift details and Rate Schedules work together to track the rates for nonstandard work hours.

If a rate schedule is assigned to a workers, they will be required to select the Shift when completing their time sheets.

Navigating the Shift Admin Object

Select the Shift admin object from the Worker section of the admin menu to view a list of shifts associated to WorkingNet’s tenant.

Create a Shift

WorkingNet periodically performs updates to their servers on weekend nights between 9 PM and 5 AM.

You’ll need to create a shift so the workers who are assigned to cover the maintenance updates can get paid at the appropriate rate.
