Punch validation rules define requirements for a punch. Users can create invalid punches (i.e. ones that don’t meet the defined requirements), but they will be flagged as either an error or a warning, depending on how the rule is set up.
Validation rules are assigned to punch entry policies, which are in turn assigned to users.
Replicon can create custom validation rules for you. Contact your Customer Success Manager for more information on custom validation rules.
To set up validation rules:
Mandatory Custom Fields Validation
Requires that dynamic custom fields you specify in the rule must be completed
"User's Choice" project client selection
Validates that a client is selected, for User's Choice multi-client projects
|Work Day Hours||Checks that hours recorded are within the user's scheduled work hours|
|Meal Break Validation with Waiver||Checks that the employee has taken meal breaks as scheduled; allows for waiving of breaks, where applicable|
Checks that the user is starting and ending work as scheduled
Checks that the employee has taken rest breaks as scheduled; allows for waiving of breaks, where applicable.
You define a repeating period in which a break must fall, called a work period (for example, 4 hours).
You can also specify that each break must be taken in the second half of the work period, using the Break required after major fraction parameter.
Punching at work location
Checks that the user is within their assigned place, defined by a geofence, when the punch was created
Meal Break Validation with Dynamic Penalty Pay
Checks that the employee has taken rest breaks as scheduled.
This rule was designed to meet meal break penalty requirements in Puerto Rico, where the penalty for a missed or short break is not a flat amount (1 hour), but is based on how much of the break was missed. For example, if a 30 min break was required, and only 10 minutes were taken, the penalty would be pay for 20 minutes.
No, you can update a rule’s name and parameters, but you can’t maintain two versions of the same rule.
