This feature will enforce managers to add a comment on shifts when they approve a shift with a variance between the rostered time or cost, and actual time or cost of the shift.
For Administrators: Enabling the feature & Reporting
You can report on these comments using the "Shift Comments for Period" platform report.
You can then find it under the Platform tab, in HR reports
Then search for "Variance Approved"
Alternatively, comments are also available on shifts
Q: How does this work with Auto Approving Timesheets?
A: Approve all will approve all shifts with no variance, but those with variance will still require manual approval.
Q: Does everyone approving need to add a comment?
A: At the moment, yes.
Q: Does this work on the mobile app or API?
A: No, not right now.
