What is “Day Change Offset”?

By default, a normal day begins at exactly 12:00AM (midnight). However, some companies may have employees who work overnight shifts, their actual workday starting late in the day or evening and ending sometime on the next day. Day change offset can be used to move the employees’ workday change time backward or forward from midnight.

If you do NOT have employees that work through midnight, leave this setting at the default.

If your third shift employees begin working on Day 1 and end working on Day 2 and all hours are credited to Day 1, leave this setting at the default.

If your third shift employees begin working on Day 1 and end working on Day 2 and all hours are credited to Day 2, set the Day Change Offset to your shift start time minus your shift start round.

Example: If your Shift starts at 11:00 and you have a 30-minute round, you would set your Day Change Offset to 10:30pm.
