How to allow employees to drop part of a shift

Turn on Drop Partial Shifts to allow your employees to drop a portion of their shift if they can no longer work the entire shift length. Managers can determine the increments of time an employee can drop their shift ranging from 15 min. to 2 hrs.

Example: Mike is scheduled to work from 8 am - 11 am. With this setting set to 1-hour, Mike will have the ability to drop 1-hour increments from his scheduled shift time.

  • Drop 8 am – 9 am and work from 9 am – 11 am
  • Or, drop 8 am – 10 am and work from 10 am – 11 am.
