How do I set the number of minutes it takes to trigger an absence?

Adjusting the absence trigger2:10

"How do I set the number of minutes it takes to trigger an absence?"

"Absence trigger minutes" is where you give their people a few minutes leeway before marking them as absent.

To set your org's absence trigger minutes:

  1. First, open your org on: "Menu", then "Orgs"
  2. Then tap: "Attendance", then "Attendance settings"
  3. Then scroll down and select the number of minutes to: "Trigger absences after"
  4. Then tap: Save
  5. Now, with the trigger set, open a timesheet to see the effect it's got.
  6. It's best to open yesterday's timesheet because absence warnings don't show up until the current day's totally finished.
  7. Currently, because both planned and done times exactly match, no absence has been triggered yet.
  8. To try triggering an absence, set the person to start late by exactly the trigger minutes.
  9. As expected, when you tap the "Reload tab" button: (at the top), still no absence has been triggered yet, as the person still hasn't gone over the trigger minutes.
  10. Next, set the person to start late by slightly more than the trigger minutes.
  11. Now when you tap the "Reload tab" button: (at the top), an absence has now been triggered.
  12. And finally, you can now see the absence warning for the number of minutes late.

Keep in mind that:

  • The "Trigger absences after" setting applies equally to all people with planned times in your org.
  • A very strict org may set the absence trigger to only 1 minute. A lax org could set it to 30 minutes. Either way, it's your choice, but if you don't change it, the default is 5 minutes.
  • Also, for tracking absences to work, planned times need to be turned on.

And that's it! That's everything you need to know about setting your org's "absence trigger minutes"!
