HVB home - How do I adjust the system to fit my organisation?

Due to it's flexibility Timezynk is used by organisations in various industries, for example, healthcare, recruitment & consulting, railway, hotel & restaurant, facilities management, etc.

While using the system with the standard settings for shifts and time reports work well for some of our customers, we believe that tailoring the system to fit one's needs is what makes the biggest difference in day-to-day operations. 

Set up for a HVB home

A HVB home shift tipically includes information about task, start- and end time as well as breaks and on duty hours. Bigger organisations also add information about which unit the shifts are scheduled to both to keep their employees well-informed and to get a better overview of the overall schedule.


In the example above we have a 24 hour shift which includes both ordinary unpaid breaks, each 30 minutes long, and 9 paid on duty hours. Which of these are paid and not paid is defined in the salary agreement that you and our Customer Success team build together.

Here are detailed instructions of how you can build an identical set up in your accout.
