In Payclock, under Payclass, you can set rounding rules for all registrations. Click here to understand the default rounding rules Payclock offers. When you utilize the Payclass Break settings with a minimum break amount, the starting point of the rounding rule is different than the normal rounding intervals. For example:
- If you set your Payclass to 1/4 hr with a 5 minute break point rounding, and you do not have a Payclass break setting, the rounding intervals will be every fifteen minutes starting from zero. For example: 1:00 1:15 1:30 1:45.
- A punch then will round to the closest interval utilizing the breakpoint to figure when it will round forward. So a punch OUT for lunch at 12:28pm will round to 12:30pm and punch back IN from lunch at 1:04 will round to 1:00pm.
- If you have a minimum break amount set under the Payclass settings, under the break tab, then the rounding interval actually starts not at the 1/4 hour but from when the OUT punch for the break is. For example, 12:28pm will be the starting interval and the next two intervals will be 12:43pm and 12:58pm.
- This means the OUT punch of 1:04 will be between rounding intervals 12:58pm and 1:13pm. Utilizing the break point of 5 minutes we know that any punch between 12:58pm and 1:02pm will round back to 12:58pm. Any punch at the break point and later, from 1:03pm to 1:13pm will round to 1:13pm. This means the OUT punch of 1:04pm will round to 1:13pm.
When utilizing a minimum break amount under the Payclass break settings, the OUT punch for lunch will be the starting point for the rounding intervals. Without a minimum break amount the rounding intervals will default to the regular points discussed in the link above.
