It might be necessary to cut the value of the balance if you want to define a maximum and / or minimum amount (flexible hours) for the balance value. The settings are made in the Worktime section in either the Working Community or Setting group level.
1. In the settings group menu, select the correct settings group and in the function menu, select Setting group settings.
2. Select Work hours > Accruals & overtime hours > Calculation settings > Balance > Maximum negative / positive balance.
If the settings are defined to take effect at the beginning of the day, the maximum and minimum amount of the balance value is limited before the working day balance calculation. In practice, the limitation is made on the value of the previous day's end balance. If, on the other hand, the setting is made to apply to the end of the day, the limitation is made after the balance calculation for that day.
Setting a date for balance cut
By using the validity function, the day on which the balance value is cut can be flexibly set through a setting exception. In this case, you can specify that the balance is always cut on a specific day, such as the first day of each month.
Open the validity tool. Click Add setting exception and enter the desired value and time of the cut in the Rule field.
Below is an example of a definition that would always cut the balance to 40 hours on the first day of April each year at the end of the day:
The date of the balance cut can be flexibly determined by various exception rules. For more information on exception rules and how to use them, see Configure exceptions to settings.
