  • No standard day selection

 

Fortnightly Standard Days/Hours
 
The values that can be applied for a single week can also be applied to a fortnight. This allows users to set different standard days or hours between an individuals first and second week. To open the fortnightly options change the drop down tab labelled 'One' in the 'Number of weeks' section to 'Two'.
 
Once the value has been changed to two weeks the display will change. Week 1 will be displayed on the left and week 2 on the right. 
 
Values can be adjusted in the same way as outlined above. Values can be different from week one to week two.
