Click Human resources > Setup > Time and attendance > Time profiles > Profiles.

Use this form to view, edit, or create work time profiles for workers.

The profile of the worker is used to calculate the worker’s work time, pay time, break time, and flexible hours.

All workers who make registrations in time and attendance or manufacturing execution must be assigned to a work time profile. For more information, see About time registration workers.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.

Tab

Description

General

Enter information about a profile.

Button

Description

Copy

Copy a profile setup to a new profile, or copy a profile day to other weekdays.

Field

Description

Profile

The identification of the profile.

Description

Enter a description of the profile.

Pay agreement

If the profile should be connected to a specific pay agreement, select the pay agreement.

Weekday

Select the day of the week to apply profile settings to.

You can enter settings for each day individually, or you can copy settings made for one day to other days.

New 24-hour period

If a profile surpasses midnight, enter the time when the following weekday's profile should be applied.

For night shift profiles, when the profile date is the date of the clock-out time, enter a time two or three hours before the expected clock-in time. This is to allow for time for workers who arrive early or work overtime before the ordinary clock-in time.

Example

A worker who works a night shift clocks in at 22:00 on Sunday. Therefore, the New 24-hour period field for the Sunday profile should be set to a time before 22:00 if you want the Monday profile to be applied. You also select Previous day in the 24-hour period start field.

NoteNote

For night-shift profiles for which the profile date is the date of the clock-in time, enter a time two or three hours after midnight and select the Push check box to consider situations when workers are late and clock in after midnight.

Push

Select this check box to make sure that the correct profile date is used for workers who are late and clock in after midnight. This check box is relevant only for profiles that surpass midnight when the profile date is the clock-in date.

Use the New 24-hour period field to set the time when yesterday's date is no longer applied.

Example

A worker is expected to clock in at 23:00 on Monday for the Monday night shift. The worker is late and clocks in at 00:15. If the Push check box is not selected, the day shift for Tuesday might be applied instead of the Monday night shift when the worker’s registrations are calculated.

24-hour period start

Specify whether the first profile line in the profile specification is the current or previous weekday.

This feature applies only to work days when the clock-in time is before or close to midnight on the previous weekday. For example, this might apply to a night shift when the worker clocks in late Sunday evening for the Monday shift.

Overtime / flex limit

Enter the minimum amount of time a worker must work on this day before receiving overtime pay or adding flexible hours to the flex balance.

Max. flex limit

Enter the maximum number of flexible hours that can be added for the day before the work hours are converted to overtime.

Color

Select a color to represent the profile in the work planner. For information about the work planner, see About work planner.

Profile time total

The total number of standard-time work hours for the week.

Profile time day

The total number of standard-time work hours for the day.

Profile type

Select the profile type.

Start

Enter the start time for the selected profile type.

End

Enter the end time for the selected profile type.

NoteNote

The Clock in and Clock out profile types do not require an end time.

Tolerance before start

Enter the number of minutes to use for rounding off the work time.

For example, if this value is set to 15 for the Clock in profile type, a worker who clocks in 10 minutes early will not be credited for this time.

Tolerance after start

Enter the number of minutes to use for rounding off the work time after the registration for the profile type has started.

For example, if this field is set to 10 for standard time, a registration that started from zero to 10 minutes after the profile line start time will have the start time rounded to the profile line start time.

Tolerance before end

Enter the number of minutes to use for rounding off the work time before the registration for the profile type has ended.

For example, if this field is set to 15 for standard time, a registration that ended from zero to 15 minutes before the profile line end time will have the end time rounded to the profile line end time.

Tolerance after end

Enter the number of minutes to use for rounding off the work time.

For example, if this value is set to 15 for the Clock out profile type, a worker who clocks out 10 minutes later than the expected clock-out time will not be credited for this time.

Switch code

Select a switch code which, if registered by the worker, will apply another profile type or registration for this time interval.

Secondary

Enter an alternative profile type that is used for the calculation if a break is canceled or a specific switch code is registered.

For more information, see About indirect activities for time and attendance.

Start day

The weekday on which this time interval starts.

End day

The weekday on which this time interval ends.
