Configuration 1: Creating a night time shift in which the employee punchs-in a day and punchs-out the next dat

When an employee works night time (it means that punchs-in a day and punchs-out the next day) it is necessary to avoid CHRON to understand that the employee has punched-in and forgot to punchs-out, and so take that second punch as a punch-in the for the next day.

3) Click on the shift type Set Hours e após no comando
4) Program the First part for the desired shift, for example 22:00 am to 6:00 pm


5) The Shift Name can be any text and will be used to identify and select shifts in employee´s schedule
