One of our customers was wondering how he would go about setting up a graveyard shift category in our time tracking system for his workers so that it could be easily sorted for payroll. For that I would use an Account Code.
Account Codes are great for sorting payroll hours. (They can also be useful for the general analysis of department spending!)
To set up and use a graveyard shift – or any other type of shift:
3. Sometimes employees use one Account Code more often than others. You can change the default shift for an individual by visiting their Settings page and clicking the Account Codes tab.
4. And last if you want to see your hours sorted by shift at the end of the pay period, run a Post-Payroll Report. You can access these by clicking Reports in the Hourly Menu. Then sort the report by Account Code to see the totals for each shift.
