  • Question

  • At my job we have a 1st shift, 2nd shift, 3rd shift, and weekend shift.

    The hours are as follows:

    1st shift 7am to 3:30pm Monday through Friday with 30 min break

    2nd shift 3pm to 1:30am Monday through Thursday with 30 min break (4x10)

    3rd shift 10:30pm to 7am Monday through Friday with 30 min break (Friday night goes into Saturday morning)

    Weekend shift 7am to 7:30pm Friday to Sunday with a 30 min break (shift only works 36 hrs a week)

    My question is when I try to set up times for 2nd shift it doesn't allow me to keep the times that I need. I input 3p to 7p and 7:30p to 1:30a. It reverts the 7:30 pm to 12:30am to 1:30am. Is there a way to prevent this?

  • Hi,

    system expects a split at midnight. So you need to split in some way.


    15:00-20:00 (3pm-8pm)

    20:30-00:00 (8:30pm-00:00)

    Tuesday - Thursday:

    00:00-01:30 (am)

    15:00-20:00 (3pm-8pm)

    20:30-00:00 (8:30pm-00:00)

    Friday: 00:00-1:30am

    Your shift will start on Monday but needs to finish on Monday, therefore only two entries. The rest of this shift will happen on Tuesday (same for working Tuesday and Thursday).

    To complete the shift starting on Thursday, you need a few hours on Friday.

    Does that make sense?
