Users with Admin or Superadmin roles have the authority to directly enter Overtime data for other employees. Apart from the Overtime submenu, you can also use the Attendance menu to directly enter overtime data without the need to go through the Approval stage. There are two ways to enter Overtime data through the Attendance menu, namely manually by changing Employee Attendance data or by using the Import feature in bulk. In this section, you will learn about both ways to enter employee overtime data.

Here are the steps:

  5. Check Overtime and fill in the information regarding the duration of overtime and the duration of breaks during overtime if any.


    - Overtime Before is overtime done before working hours.
    - Overtime After is overtime that is done after working hours.
