If you have one or more employees who should not manually punch their hours, but should have timepunches created automatically based on the start- and end-time of the shift, you can easily do this by using the timepunch method Deviation reporting.

Follow these steps to do this:

  • Go to Staff, Agreement / Availability
  • Open the employee's agreement
  • Go to the Time tab
  • Uncheck "Use agreement template"
  • In the "Type of time reporting" drop-down list, select "Deviation Reporting"
  • Save

Now, time punches will automatically be generated to the scheduled shifts.

To make this setting for all connected to a contract template, do the following:

  • Go to Time,  Agreement templates
  • Open the agreement template you want to make this change for
  • Go to the Time tab
  • In the "Type of time reporting" drop-down list, select "Deviation Reporting"
  • Save

Now, time punches will automatically be generated for employees associated with this agreement template.
