If you have employees who are working during night or late evenings, you might have a separate "night" overtime pay rate for those hours.

There is a feature to enable "Night hours" & specify a range during which any shifts are considered as "night hours".

Once enabled, these "night hours" will appear in a separate column in Excel export - very useful for accountants!

To enable night hours, go to Settings > Scheduling & tick the "Enable "Night hours" in Excel export" checkbox.


There is also option to specify even further by defining how long shifts, which start during the day & ends at night are handled. In some countries there are specific rules about this so we have a setting for this:
"For overlapping shifts consider night hours only if shift falls more than X hours in defined "Night hours"".

This means that: 

  1. If shift starts in the evening & ends during night hours but sooner than defined in the "X" hours (in the setting above), then those hours will not be considered as part of "night hours".
  2. If shift starts in the evening & ends during night hours but later than defined in the "X" hours (in the setting above), then all of the hours which were after defined start of "night hours" will be considered as "night hours"

    Same goes for shifts which start during night hours & end during the day:
  3. If shift starts during "night hours" & ends during the day but the night hours are less than defined in the "X" hours (in the setting above), then those hours will not be considered as part of "night hours".
  4. If shift starts during "night hours" & ends during the day and the night hours are more than defined in the "X" hours (in the setting above), then those hours will be considered as part of "night hours".


This might sound confusing but remember - this is an advanced setting! If you have any doubts or questions - please reach out to our support team & we'll be happy to set everything up for you :)
