Procedures

Move lunch or short break

Move your own lunch or short break. Each move is validated based on staffing levels and work time settings. The staffing levels for both the original position and the new position for the lunch or short break affect the possibility to move it.

  1. Click the pen button for the day where you want to move the lunch or a short break. A pop-up view opens.
  2. Select the lunch or short break to move and move it to the position you want. You can move it by 5-minute increments.

    NOTE   Time periods which are not available to move to are indicated with diagonal stripes. If you hover the lunch or break over a period that is not available, a message is shown to explain why you can't make the move.

  3. Click Yes to confirm the move.
