You can classify employees in Time Clock MTS by shifts. This is useful for reporting purposes. You can also apply a loading to shifts to automatically effect payroll calculations for employees assigned to a particular shift. You can also specify a start and stop time for a shift. These times will be compared with employee clock times and allow you to specify alerts to appear on reports. The Tools->Options->Shifts screen is where you can add, edit, or delete shifts.
Defined shifts are displayed in a list. To Add a Shift click the button. To Edit a Shift click on it in the shift list and click the button.To Delete a Shift click on it in the shift list and click the button.
