Before adding employees to your Timesheet Manager, you'll need to configure the following: shifts, classifications, companies, pay codes, and awards.

Shifts

This configuration represents the different types of shifts that can be selected from later, when assigning a particular shift to an employee. E.g. AM, PM, Night Shift, Stock Shift etc

How to set up your different shifts:

  1. In the Shifts box, click on Configure.

2. Click on 'add shift'.

3. Label your shift and click Save

4. Shifts can be edited or removed at any time.

Classifications

Under this configuration, managers can create different types of work classifications to assign to their employees e.g. Full time, Part Time, Casual etc.

How to set up your different classifications:

  1. In the Classifications box, click on Configure.

  2. Click on 'add classification'.

  3. Assign a name for an employee classification, e.g. part time

  4. Classifications can be edited or removed at any time. Once you have assigned your employees to a particular classification, a number representing the amount of employees in each classification will be visible under the 'employees' column.

Companies

In cases where businesses rely on contractors from external companies to work for them, this configuration enables managers to add in the different companies they contract from.

How to set up your different companies:

  1. In the Company box, click on Configure.

  2. Click on 'add company'.

  3. Assign a name for the company, and select the company location, if applicable.

  4. Companies can be edited or removed at any time. Once you have assigned your employees to a particular company and location, a number representing the amount of employees in each location will be visible under the 'employees' column.

Public Holidays

Under this configuration, managers can enter in the various public holidays relevant to their employees. Often public holidays vary based on the location of the business, so this enables managers to ensure they are assigning the correct public holiday pay code to each employee based on their location.

How to set up your different public holidays:

  1. In the Public Holidays box, click on Configure.

  2. Click on 'add holiday'.

  3. Assign a name for the holiday, select the date, and then select the company locations where the public holiday is applicable.

  4. Public Holidays can be edited or removed at any time.

Once these configurations have been set up, you're almost ready to add your employees to your Timesheet Manager. We have written a separate FAQ that covers how to configure Awards and Pay Codes for your business here.
