Version 366

Updated by Leigh Hutchens

Important Update

As part of our quest to improve quality and deliver value to our customers and users, Quinyx WFM Classic will move from 3 week release cycles to 2 week release cycles from January 2020 forward. There are multiple reasons for this change:

  • Shorter time between identification and correction of bugs
  • Fewer changes with each release, decreasing the risk of bugs
  • Faster and more frequent delivery of new features and improvements
  • New functionality available in Neo, Classic, and Mobile at the same time

For you as a customer, this means that you will have one day less to familiarise yourself with new functionality on RC. However, the benefit is that with shorter release cycles, each release will contain fewer changes, so there won’t be as much to try out in each release.

New functionality

Option for overtime to be generated on absence

It is now also possible to allow for overtime to be generated on a day with absence. Today, with the current functionality, the overtime is generated on the closest day before the absence within the same schedule period that contains a punch.

The setting is activated on each leave reason in order to choose employees who are allowed to have overtime generated. The setting is placed on Settings Tables Leave types → Chosen leave type

Not all payroll systems are able to handle both transactions generated from overtime and absence at the same day. Before changing these settings please check your payroll manual and also make sure to do extensive testing before using this in production. Setting this setting wrong may impact payroll negatively

New daily overtime method

With this release, we have added a new overtime quota avg. nominal hours per day.

This quota will look at Nominal days/week and full time working hours to calculate average nominal hours per day.


Full time working hours - 40 hours, Nominal days/week - 5 = 8 avg nominal hours calculated per day

Full time working hours - 40 hours, Nominal days/week - 4 = 10 avg nominal hours calculated per day

Overtime methods are configured in Settings Tables Overtime methods → Add new / Edit

Split punch on tasks through Webpunch

It is now possible to split punches on scheduled tasks when punching in and out in Webpunch.

Splitting punches on tasks will happen when employees punch out from Webpunch and agreement has the following settings:

  • Time → Agreement template Time
    • Type of time reporting: Punching IN/OUT but no breaks
    • Allow punching on tasks: Unchecked
  • Time → Agreement template Mobile punch flow
    • Split punch on tasks: Checked

Example: Scheduled shifts and tasks during a day
