The Payboy software makes provisions for the administrator to set up and modify the default working hours of different groups of employees within a company.

The administrator can either choose to set up a company-wide working hour system or augment it with specific working hours for certain groups of employees.

Setting Up the Company's Working Hours

  • On the left-side menu, head to Company > click on Work Hours

  • Select if the majority of employees are on Flexible Timing (i.e. can start anytime during the day but must fulfill at least 8 hours of work each day) or Fixed Timing (i.e. can start anytime during the day but must fulfill at least 8 hours of work each day).

  • Edit the Start of the working period and End of the working period accordingly on one of the days.
    โ€‹(Note: Each box represents a day of the week)

  • Example A: If the shift crosses over to the following Day, check the Ends Next Day box. Without checking the box, you will not be able to key in an ending time that falls on the following day (After 12 AM).

  • Example B: If the shift does not cross over to the following day, ie; 9 am to 6 pm, uncheck the box.

  • Check the box by clicking beside the label Half Day if it is a half working day (Note that a half day has to be a working day. Hence, you will not be able to check half day exclusively without checking it as a working day as well)

  • Click Submit to save any changes made.

(Note: These working hours will be assigned to ALL employees automatically, both existing and new ones)


Setting individual employees' working hours with a pay scheme (on the employee's profile) will override the above default hours.
