A. Group Duty Roster for New Year
If there’s no setting for the Group Duty Roster for the New Year, the downloaded clocking data will not be generated into the Attendance sheet due to no schedule can be referred to by the system.

To set the Group Duty Roster for New Year, go to Attendance > Group Duty Roster, then select the desired year at the top right of the window.

Proceed to click on Edit button. The following screen will be prompted. Here, you can choose to import the roster or create the new Group Duty Roster by the assistance of the Auto Schedule functions. If the settings of the year that you have selected earlier are similar to the previous year, you may open the previous year’s settings as your reference.

Press ‘OK’ to proceed. The New Year Roster is now ready with the proper schedule that has been arranged according to how you set in the previous steps.

  3. Hello, how can I setup to make all public holiday pay automatic normal time and if staff work on holiday, they get double time.

    Thank you.

  4. Hello,

    I ask again,

    How can I make Public Holiday add normal hours, and if employee works(punches time) adds hours to overtime column.
    Thank you

    1. Hello Sir,

      Regarding your query, please explain further on your requirement to add normal hours to Public Holiday , and if employee works.

      By right, if you want data for Public Holiday to be calculated as normal hour, you may untick on this option in clocking schedule :

      However, if you want data for Public Holiday shows as an overtime, then you need to tick on option in screenshot above and generate attendance sheet again.

  5. Hi Athirah,

    If employee is not at work, i want the system to add days normal hours under Work Column, If they work, then the hours worked to be under Diff OT Column.

    Thank you

    1. Dear Sir / Ma'am,

      Good day to you,

      Referring to your inquiry, kindly be informed that our system does not support that kind of requirement. The employee must work (clock in and clock out) in order to gain the normal work hour.

      Please send email to should you require further clarification on above issue as our team can assist you further.

      Thanks & Best Regards

  6. How can I add Public Holiday hours as Paid? i have a situation HERE WHERE I need to allow the system to automatically add 8 hours of paid Time Off.

    1. Hello Athira, Could you please contact me on my email?

      Thank you.
