If your employees do not tap in/out for the break, but a break needs to be added, you can use one of the options below.

You can't do this setup yourself: contact our supportteam for this.

Note: breaks in Strobbo are always unpaid and are therefore not counted as worked time.

1. Take a break from the planning

When you include the break in the planning, this option ensures that the break is added to the clock time (** see details at the bottom)

2. Automatic break via the time clock

When not all time entries are linked to the planning, or when you do not want to register the break with the planning, you can have automatic break rules set up based on the agreements in your labour regulations.

The automatic break works as follows:

  • we can set a break of x number of minutes

  • from a certain number of hours worked

  • breaks can be set per statute

For example: a break of 30 minutes from 6 a.m. onwards for blue-collar workers, a break of 30 minutes from 4 a.m. onwards for students.

The break cannot be set per employee. The setting is only possible for statutes.

**Your employees can of course still register their breaks via the time clock. Suppose the duration of the clocked break is shorter, we will make it the duration of the automatic break by default. If the duration of the clocked break is longer, we take the latter.

Please note that if you manually change the break in a time recording, the system will not overwrite it, even if it is shorter than the set break.

An example: you have an automatic break of 30 minutes. If John clocked only 15 minutes of break time that day, the system will automatically make it 30. If John takes a 45-minute break the next day, we will keep the 45 minutes. The break cannot be taken between a certain time of day, e.g. every day between 13:00 and 14:00. If you wish, you must let your employees clock in and out. What is possible, for example, is a one hour break from 9.00am.

These automatic breaks are processed at night, so the break only appears in the overview the next day.
