General information

Required fields

Working Hours are located in the Work Information tab.


Working Hours are related to a company’s working times, and an employee cannot have working hours that are outside of a company’s working times.

Each individual working time is company-specific, so for multi-company databases, each company needs to have its own working hours set.

If an employee’s working hours are not configured as a working time for the company, new working times can be added, or existing working times can be modified. To add or modify a working time, go to the Payroll app ‣ Configuration ‣ Working Times, and add a new working time or edit an existing one.

After the new working time is created, set the working hours for the employee.
