Breaks (kiosk)

Breaks allow employees to specify when they’re on a break via a kiosk.

They can start or end their breaks using your kiosk terminal.

Later, in reports, admins and managers can see when each employee was on a break and for how long.

Breaks are an extra feature, which you can enable by upgrading your account to any PAID plan.

Admins can enable Breaks in the Workspace settings.

Starting a break #

  1. Go to kiosk
  2. Select your profile
  3. Enter your PIN (if required)
  4. Choose Start break

If you’re clocked-in and start a break, you’ll be automatically clocked-out and a timer for break entry will start immediately.

People who are on a break will have an orange dot next to them on the kiosk list.

Team Dashboard also shows who’s currently clocked-in and who’s on a break in the web app.

Finishing a break #

  1. Go to kiosk
  2. Select your profile
  3. Enter your PIN (if required)
  4. Choose Finish break

When you finish a break, you’ll be automatically clocked-in again (a timer for break will end and a new clock-in timer will start).

Reporting on breaks #

You can distinguish break entries from regular work entries:

  • On the Timer Tracker, Detailed report, and Approval, a break entry will have a gray “Break” tag
  • In the Calendar, a break entry will have a coffee cup icon on it
  • In the Timesheet, a new line shows all breaks summarized

You can define to which project break time will be tracked in the kiosk settings:

  1. Go to Kiosk page
  2. Click three dots next to some kiosk
  3. Choose a default project for break
  4. Save kiosk and all break time will be tracked to the selected project

If you click continue icon on a break entry (via Time Tracker or Calendar), a timer for a new break entry will start running.

On the Timesheet, you can edit breaks, or copy them from previous week or via template.

In the Detailed report and Time Tracker, break entries can be edited in the same way as other time entries . You can also include them in invoices if they’re billable.

You can filter reports by break and non-break status in the Status filter.

You can see break status of each entry in the Detailed report export (Excel, CSV).

It’s not possible to remove the break tag from an entry.

If you need to manually create a break entry, duplicate an existing one and modify its information (eg. start/end time, user, etc.). If you duplicate it while the Break feature is disabled, a regular entry will be created instead.

If you’re no longer on a paid plan, Break feature will be disabled, but time entries for break made by that point will remain visible, but not editable.
