Set Up Automatic Breaks in Timesheet

  • Updated

Who can set up this feature

  • Dashboard Users with access to Settings in the Assignar Web App
  • Those who work in planning, scheduling, or interact with inbound information from the jobsite
  • Make sure your workers have updated their Assignar Mobile App to the latest version (min. v8.10+)
  • This feature works in both Daily Log (except Check In/Check out) and Site Diary. 


Make it easy for your workers to submit Timesheets with a break using our Auto-Add Break feature. This feature removes the need to manually tap the Add Break button as we'll automatically insert one into their Timesheet for them.

Set the default break duration

Use the setting below to set how long you want the default break to be. For example, you can set '30' to insert a 30 min break into a Timesheet.


Next, turn the Auto-add Break to Timesheet setting on and save.


Done! The next time your workers create a Timesheet, a break will automatically be inserted into their Timesheet.

Some important notes

  • If a worker is assigned to a shift longer than 5 hours, a break will automatically be added to their Timesheet. Automatic Breaks are not added if a shift is fewer than 5 hours.
  • Pro tip: If you want your workers to quickly create a loose Timesheet with a Break automatically inserted, you can set the default timesheet time by changing the setting below. This means that the next time a worker adds a loose timesheet from the Assignar Mobile App, the timesheet will be defaulted to 7:00AM - 5:00PM with a 30min break in the middle.
