Recreating Breaks After Changes to Break Rules

TimeForge can save you time scheduling breaks while you’re creating employee schedules. You can set up break rules so that breaks will automatically be created when you’re building a schedule. Sometimes you may need to add a break rule, or make changes to a break rule, even after you’ve already created a schedule. TimeForge allows you to easily update the schedule to reflect your new rules without having to start a new schedule.

Go to the “Schedules” page

Go to the "Schedules" page

After you’ve made your necessary changes to the break rules, it’s time to update the schedule. Go to the “Schedules” page and select the schedule that needs to be updated:

  • Hover over “Schedules”
  • Click “Schedules”
  • Choose the appropriate schedule.

Go to the “Weekly View”

Go to the "Weekly View"

Click on the “Weekly View” link toward the right-side of the page.

Click the schedule name

Click the schedule name

Once on the “Weekly View”, the name of the schedule will appear as link. Click  the name of the schedule to open options regarding the schedule.

Click “Recreate Breaks”

Click "Recreate Breaks"

Once you click the name of the schedule, the above box will display.

Click “Recreate Breaks” for your schedule to update the breaks based on your newly created break rules.

Click “OK”
