What are flexible work timings?
Flexible work timings refer to a work arrangement that allows employees to have some degree of control over their daily working hours. Employees are typically required to work a certain number of hours per day or week, but with flexible work timing, they have the flexibility to choose when they start and end their shifts.
For example, instead of adhering to a fixed 9-to-5 schedule, employees with flexible work timings may have the option to start work earlier or later, take breaks during the day, or adjust their work hours to better suit their personal needs or preferences.
Flexible work timings can be beneficial for both employees and employers. Employees can have a better work-life balance, reduce commuting time, and accommodate personal commitments. Employers can experience increased productivity, higher job satisfaction, and reduced absenteeism.

Step 1: Go to Settings >> Attendance >> Work Timings.

How check-in, check-out, and extra hours work in case of flexible work timing:
Depending on the start and end time limit, the employee is expected to fulfill the required working hours as configured in the flexible work timing.
If the employee logs more number of hours than what is expected, it will be captured as extra hours on Time and Pay adjustments.
No action will be taken if the employee logs less number of the expected hours.
As per the existing functionality, employees can check in before the start time limit and there will be no system restriction on this.
