It's not always easy to know how to fill in the hours of attendance at school for an apprentice or a work-study student. Rest assured, we have two options for scheduling those hours they aren't working :

  • Add a training absence

  • Schedule a shift with the 'School' label

Add a "training" absence

The "Training" absence is considered a paid absence, so it's not deducted from the employee's pay and the training hours are considered as actual working time.

In the analysis, these hours will not be accounted for in your locations' productivity ratios.

Head to the Schedule :

  • Click on the concerned day

  • Select new absence > "Training"

  • Fill in the hours

  • Save

Schedule a shift with a "School" label

Another alternative exists. You can create a shift, with a "school" label. You will be able to add breaks and meals.

The hours of the "School" shift are included in the productivity calculations !

  • Click on the concerned day

  • Select the desired label and complete the hours

  • Save
