Adjusting your end workday to split timesheets
If you have a night work schedule, this might be useful for your team
Splitting your timesheets can be done by managing your work schedule.
The default time to split timesheets is at midnight 12am, which is the end of your workday/start of a new day. Your end workday indicates the cut-off point for your timesheets for the day.
What this means is that any time entries that are recorded after this set time will be considered a new day.
- If your end workday is set at midnight 12am, this means that any time entries after midnight will be counted as a new day and displayed on the next working day on your timesheets.
- If your end workday is set at 3am, this means that any time entries after 3am will be counted as a new day and displayed on the next working day on your timesheets.
Important ❗: Changing this setting will affect how timesheets are displayed. There will be a confirmation modal for you to confirm the changes. It can be reset back to midnight.
Who is this useful for?
Splitting the timesheets is part of Jibble’s timesheet app and is useful for teams who have an unconventional work schedule such as night shifts that go past midnight.
In this scenario, we recommend changing your end workday to a later time to ensure accurate overtime calculation.
If you have set your end workday to after midnight to split timesheets, i.e. the next day, it is also possible to set the end time on your work schedule arrangement to the next day as well.
- Split timesheet at 03:00 am (end workday)
- Start-end work hours: from 06:00 pm to 02:00 am (end time)
In this scenario, a full working day indicated on timesheets spans from 3am (current day) to 2:59am (next day).
If today is Monday, 13 March, a user will see his time entries shown on the 13 March section of his timesheets spanning from 3:00 am (13 March) to 2:59 am (14 March). For the next day, time entries will be shown on the 14 March section of his timesheets spanning from 3:00 am (14 March) to 2:59 am (15 March).
For example, here are some time entries to explain Alan’s situation:
- Clock in – 6:00 pm on Monday (13 March)
- Break – 9:00 pm on Monday (13 March)
- Clock in – 10:00 pm on Monday (13 March)
- Clock out – 1:00 am on Tuesday (14 March)
Since his timesheets are split from 3:00 am onwards, all of the above time entries will be displayed on his timesheets for 13 March (spans from 3:00 am 13 March to 2:59 am 14 March).
If Alan then clocks in at 4:00 am (14 March), this time entry will be displayed on his timesheets for 14 March as it is considered a new working day (spans from 3:00 am 14 March to 2:59 am 15 March).
