Shifts

Shifts allow users to view safe activity in reports broken into defined shifts or group of hours. Read below to learn about how shifts work to determine if this is a beneficial feature to your business.

  • The safe business day can be configured to be split in up-to 6 shifts. By default, this feature is off, or there is only 1 24hrs shift. If there is only one shift then it’s start and end times match the business day.
  • If shifts are configured, these are applicable everyday, regardless of the weekday.
  • This is a safe level configuration and is agnostic to the logged in user performing the action.
  • Shifts can be configured in the safe or in the cloud.

How to split up the day

  • Shift must add up to 24 hrs. By default the shift hours will be calculated by 24 hrs divided by the number of shifts. 
  • If there are 6 configured shifts, then by default each shift will be set 4 hrs long (24 hrs divided by 6 shifts), these can be manually adjusted, their duration can be different from each other.
  • The last shift of the day ends at End Of Day, if the EOD time is updated the shifts will adjust accordingly.

Eg: If EOD time is set to 3 AM and shift is configured as 6, Then the shift hours will be as follows,

Shift 1 : 3AM to 7AM

Shift 2 : 7AM to 11 AM

Shift 3 : 11 AM to 3 PM

Shift 4 : 3 PM to 7 PM

Shift 5 : 7 PM to 11 PM

Shift 6 : 11 PM to 3 AM

  • If any shift ends manually before the configured time, the remaining time on the shift will be added to the next shift.
  • In the example above, if shift 1 ends manually at 6AM, the second shift will start at 6 AM (instead of 7am) but it will keep it’s set end time of 11 AM becoming 1 hour longer, a 5 hour shift instead of 4 hours.
  • If the user ends the last shift before configured time, a 7th shift will start automatically and it will end at EOD.
