Advice and answers from the Tanda Team

You may need to roster a split shift if your staff work 2 shifts within a day with a break in between. There are two ways you can roster a split shift dependent on what team the staff member works in. Option 1, is for staff working within the same team across both shifts. Option 2, is for staff who will be working across two different teams.

Option 1: One Shift with a break in the middle

Create a shift and roster the start and finish time as the start of the first shift and the finish time as the end of the second shift:

Next, click the pencil icon and select Add break, which will take you to the Day View of the roster. You can also access day view at any times via the roster sidebar view toggle.

In the Break column, enter the end of the first shift and start of the second shift in the format as above.

Now, back in the Week View for the roster, when you hover over the break icon, it will now show you the time in between the split shift. This will be sent through to the employee in an SMS/Email similarly:

Option 2: Two separate shifts

The other way to roster a split shift is to create two shift cards. This will allow you to roster that person into a different team in one of their shifts.

As above, the employee is working in one Team in their first shift and then a different Team when they return back for the second part of their shift.

Important Information

the staff member on a split shift will have to clock in and out for their break in between, so that Tanda knows that they did not work for this time.
