We ♡ our customers. And we are happy about the valuable contacts as well as successful partnerships. THANK YOU.
In our newly launched newsletter series «TimeTools Knowhow Box», we provide tips & tricks, valuable advice as well as practical professional knowledge about working time recording for everyday working life.
The definition of desired parameters for the calculation of time data is ensured in the TimeTool system via so-called day plans. A day plan summarizes the most important features such as target working time, break regulations or even overtime zones for the automated calculation of time data.
Among the many possibilities you will also find parameters for configuring tolerance times - also known as grace times. But do you actually know what the task of a tolerance time definition is?
Usually, tolerance time definition is applied in case of fixed working time or shift operation. In this case, the corresponding work start is defined as a time in the daily schedule. In a next step, the time range before the work start can be defined as a tolerance range. The prerequisite for this is defined overtime ranges. In the following example, 5 minutes before the specified start of work at 5 a.m. and 10 minutes after the end of work at 1:30 p.m. are defined as such zones.
If the employee's time is now booked in the tolerance zone marked in green, for example at 04:56, the working time is automatically credited as overtime without the need for approval. The same applies, for example, to the going clock-in at 13:38.
If the clock-in clock-out is registered before the defined tolerance range in the morning, the overtime is not automatically credited. In this case, the accrued time must be approved or rejected by the responsible supervisor via the TimeTool Message Center. In case of rejection, the working time is counted from the defined start of work at 5 o'clock. The same rule applies to overtime after the end of work.
This procedure is intended to prevent individual overtime minutes from generating additional work for supervisors in the area of overtime approval.
Do you have any questions about time management in everyday working life? Our consulting team will be happy to help you.
So, finally an end to the confusing paperwork! The «Image Upload»* function (e.g. for medical certificates, expense receipts) in the pipoPRO app makes it possible.
And it works as simple as this: Take a picture of the document/expense receipt, optionally enter a comment and/or assign the picture to a project, subproject or activity, press «Capture». Done.
With time (time recording and absence management) or project, the activity recording module of the pipoPRO app, you can use all licensed features - everywhere, immediately and at any time. The add-on module project, for example, allows you to record working hours directly on projects, sub-projects and/or activities.
