Ordinary hour splits

The Settings → Ordinary hour splits page lists the different ‘ordinary’ spread of hours your staff use. These definitions are then used when multiple day leave requests are made – so the system knows how many hours of leave to subtract on each day. The split is also used to make budget reports more accurate.

While it’s not incredibly important to define each an every split, it can be very useful if you have pre-agreed ‘normal’ working hours with your part-time and full-time staff.

To create a new ordinary hour split, click the Create new button at the top of the page.

Below you will find a breakdown of all the fields in the Settings → Ordinary hour splits location of your account.

Field NameExampleDescription
ID*WS10001A unique identifier for the work schedule. An ID can be comprised of text and/or numbers up to 20 characters in length. If the ID used belongs to an existing deleted work schedule it will be un-deleted.
Pay schedule*WeeklyThe pay schedule the work schedule relates to. The work schedule will only show as an option for staff connected to this pay schedule and where their ordinary hours match the total hours defined in the 'Day x ordinary' fields. If the pay schedule is weekly, 7 days worth of 'Day x ordinary' hours need to be defined. If the pay schedule is fortnightly or monthly, 14 days worth of 'Day x ordinary' need to be defined.
Start date*2014-12-01The start date of the work schedule. This can be in the past or future. This becomes the 'anchor' point for the work schedule's cycle. If the pay schedule you're connecting the work schedule to is weekly or fortnightly, we recommend using the start date of one of the pay cycles.
Day 1 ordinary*7.5The amount of hours normally worked on the first day of the work schedule. If the date entered in the 'Start date' field is the first day of the pay cycle (recommended for weekly and fortnightly), this number will be the hours normally worked on the first day of the pay cycle.
Day 2 ordinary*7.5As above.
Day 3 ordinary*7.5As above.
Day 4 ordinary*7.5As above.
Day 5 ordinary*8.0As above.
Day 6 ordinary*0.0As above.
Day 7 ordinary*0.0As above.
