Employee Scheduling is a part of the Sparkrock Manage solution and allows employees to manage their schedules, request absences, split shifts into smaller units, and so on.
In order to use scheduling, you must have implemented the Payroll Administration granule, and all employees who are going to use scheduling must haveusers configured in NAV. This is necessary to establish the positions and pay cycles used by scheduling.
Note: Employee Scheduling uses entirely new tables from the previous Scheduling solution. There is no conversion process, it is necessary to re-implement scheduling in order to move to the new release. Please speak with your Project Manager or support representative if you wish to explore this process.
How Employee Scheduling Handles Overnight Shifts
An overnight shift is any shift that spans midnight (for example, 8 pm to 8 am). With overnight shifts its important to use the actual date worked when calculating overtime and performing other payroll calculations. This can be a challenge with overnight shifts as they transfer to payroll with the date the shift started.
When the system encounters an overnight shift, it checks to see if an activity has a start time after midnight. If an activity has a start time after midnight, when transferred to Payroll Journal Line enter work date that is the shift's Work Date +1 (the next day). Activities that cross midnight will be allocated to the day in which they BEGIN.
When creating overnight shifts, the best practice is to split activities at midnight.
