2763259 - Dynamic Break Handling: Minimum Break Deduction on Absences


As of the Q1 2019 release, the system behavior for minimum break deduction will be changed.

Typically, it is expected that dynamic break handling in the time sheet evaluation service will trigger an automatic creation of breaks such that the recorded and the generated breaks together add up to at least the amount of time which is configured in the dynamic breaks rule.

Up to now, however, there was the problem that breaks according to the dynamic break rule could not overlap with absence records because a collision check would prohibit such breaks from being generated.


Employee Central, Time Sheet


From Q1 2019, dynamic breaks which are overlapping with absence records will be generated automatically.

  • Dynamic breaks over absences will be generated if and only if a dynamic break rule is active for that day.
  • However, fixed / scheduled breaks will not be generated over absences, as before.
  • The collision check will allow system-generated breaks overlapping absences. However, manual breaks are still not allowed.
  • Deletion of such generated dynamic breaks will lead to a re-creation of the breaks.

As of 2311 release, it is possible to prevent the auto generation of scheduled break and dynamic break for SF TTR customers. Details in WNV Prevention of Break Generation can be referred to.
