Complying with working time rules made easy – with the new timr version 6

[one_half] [infobox]



With the August update of timr we laid the foundation for our main focus of the last weeks, which is: Making work easier for our customers by extending the automatic checks.

With the October update (timr version 6.5) there are now even more helpful functions available.

1. Automatic review of rules regarding labor law

In timr a number of options are available to check labor law regulations. For this purpose we have extended the existing “break model” to “working time rules”.

The new working time rules will be assigned in the working time model, just like the break model so far.

1.1. NEW Define rules for legally required rest periods (holiday rest, …)



Define rules for daily and weekly rest periods as well as for holidays. timr automatically checks all work time records for compliance with the defined rules.

The new working time rules are assigned in the working time model, just like the break model before. Details on configuration can be found in this manual.

1.2. NEW Define flex time and core time frameworks


If you have agreed upon a flextime frame and core hours with your employees, simply configure this accordingly in timr.
If an employee records times outside of the flextime frame or does not adhere to the core times, you will receive a corresponding message in the time account.

1.3. Automatic review of the maximum daily and weekly working time



At the moment there are the following validations:

  • Daily maximum working time
  • Weekly maximum working time

If the defined maximum limits for the daily and weekly maximum working hours are exceeded, you will automatically receive a warning message.

2. Plausibility checks

You can let timr check your employees’ records for plausibility.

2.1. NEW Review project time with supporting working time



If activated, timr automatically checks if the project time has been booked within working hours.
This allows to detect errors when booking working or project time early.

Details, including activation, can be found here.

2.2. Review of overlaps for working hours and project times

To prevent an employee from tracking an hour twice (e.g. 8-9 a.m. and 7-10 a.m.), you can activate an automatic validation of working times.

You can also use this to prevent a customer from being billed twice for the same project time.

3. NEW Automatic review of internal guidelines for project time recording



As a supervisor, you want to make sure that employees book their working time accordingly to projects and tasks.

In order to facilitate the verification, you can define in timr how much project time should be recorded compared to working time. For example, you can define that project time has to be recorded for 80% of the working time.

More details can be found in this manual.

Is there anything that you currently still need to check manually on your employees’ times on a regular basis?

Please let us know in Support and we will check whether we can automate this.
