Set up time types

Before you get started

If you value certain hours differently from overtime for travel, commuting or on-call duty, you can use time types to record and compensate these hours.

Please note that only the Activities - hours, Activities - days and Attendance - schedules regulations are eligible.

If you need to use time types for a non-eligible regulation, you can specify your requirement on our product portal.

Alternatively, here are the steps to follow to configure time types.

1. Check that the regulation has tracking by time type

There needs to be a regulation with tracking by time type. If the regulation is tracked by time type, a "Time types" section is visible under the "Time accounting" section in Settings.R_glementaire_avec_section_types_de_temps.png

Otherwise, you need to create an Attendance - times or Activities - hours or Activities - days regulation with tracking by time type.

To apply the regulations to submitters, you need to link their work cycle to the regulations (Settings > Selection of regulation with tracking by time type > Define concerned submitters). If you create a new regulation, you must first detach their work cycle from the old regulation (Settings > Selection of previous regulation > Define concerned submitters). Please note, to apply the regulations to submitters on a specific date, this modification must be made once the previous timesheets have been approved.

2. Set up time types

The "Time types" section displays the time types applied to the regulation. The "Set up time types" button is used to access the time type settings window, where you can create, modify and archive time types shared by several regulations.

A time type is characterized by:

  1. its name
  2. its processing in payroll
  3. the regulations it is active in

The time type listed first is the default time type entered when the submitter enters data. It is usually called "Attendance".

The second important element is payroll processing. By default, payroll processing must be based on actual working time. The "Working time" and "Other time type" payroll processes are available to meet specific requirements stipulated by the working time agreement.

You must select the name of the regulation for the time type to be active, i.e. visible on the timesheets of the regulation's submitters.


If the regulation is selected, the time type will be listed in the "Time types" category of the regulation.


If a time type becomes obsolete, you can archive it from the time type settings window. Archiving the time type makes it unavailable for selection on submitter timesheets, but you retain the history on submitted timesheets.
