How to always add a meal when you create a shift ?

Go to Settings > Preferences :

  • Check the "By default add a meal per shift"

  • Save

i.e. : The option is set for the entire account.

How do you set the compensation type used at your location ?

There are 4 types of meal compensation :

  • Meal allowance : Meals taken on site at a flat discounted rate.
    In catering, this is equivalent to a meal allowance (for the meal not taken, you get financial compensation)

  • Benefit in kind : Free meal taken on site

  • Restaurant voucher : Known as luncheon voucher

  • Baskets allowance: Lump sum financial allowance for a meal taken outside

To set up compensation for your location, go to Locations & Schedules :

  • Choose your location

  • In the “Labour settings” section, select the meal type to default to your shifts

  • Save

i.e. : When a shift is created with a meal, the default selected meal type will come out directly ! You still have the possibility to change the type of compensation when creating the shift, or not add any.
