Overview of the target hours settings:

40 hours per week and 8 target hours per day from Monday to Friday are the default settings.

You can choose between weekly target hours or monthly target hours. Just place the tick next to the respective choice and record the target hours.

The ticks next to Monday to Sunday are the basis for the vacation and absence calculation.

IMPORTANT:  If an employee receives a new employment contract with a different regulation for weekly or monthly target hours, please create a new target hours period. If you only change the old period, this can lead to errors in past absences, and other calculations.

Here are a few examples:

Employee 1 works 40 weekly target hours and works 5 days/week, he receives e.g., 30 vacation days. The settings must then look like this:

For 30 vacation days, 5 days are now calculated per week.

Employee 2 works 32 weekly target hours and works 4 days/week, he receives e.g., 19 vacation days. The settings must then look like this:

For 19 vacation days, 4 days are now calculated per week.

Employee 3 works 140 monthly target hours and works 6 days/week, he receives 32 vacation days. The settings must then look like this:

For 32 vacation days, 6 days are now calculated per week.

Employee 4 works 100 monthly target hours and works 4 days/week, he receives 19 vacation days. The settings must then look like this:

For 19 vacation days, 4 days are now calculated per week.

The function "Target hours may not be exceeded" can be activated if you want to ensure that the employee cannot enter more than his target hours per week.

Then click on save for the settings to be recorded.

IMPORTANT: Regardless on which weekdays the ticks are placed, the employee can still be assigned to other weekdays (without tick). Then he just accumulates overtime on those days. If he then did not work on a day with a tick, negative hours form. The current balance adjusts itself at the end of the week. The ticks are only the bases for the absences. On which days are vacation days deducted from the holiday entitlement and on which days does the employee get the absences paid out.
