This article outlines how to block out staff on the calendar if they run late for their shift.
Marking a staff member as late can be done on the appointment calendar by creating a break. If a staff member is running late, that is not their fault, you can add in a paid break to block out that time on the calendar. For more info on paid breaks, check out this guide.
Single-click on your calendar where you want to create a break, then press Break at the bottom of the screen.
In the Label, note that the staff member was late for their shift. Then, select how late they were in minutes.
You can mark the absence as Unpaid by leaving the Staff in Paid During This Break box unchecked (this will then make sure your reports match up).
When running the payroll report, it will consider this and ensure the staff member is not paid for the lateness. Keeping it on the appointment calendar will ensure you can see it at a glance.
