Supplement 1

If you want to use special attendance items such as "legal holiday overtime", "non-legal late night", "fixed non-legal holidays" as alert target items, you need to extend the "attendance item setting unified function". 


Customers who issued accounts before February 14, 2018 will not have this feature expanded. If you wish to expand, please contact us from the inquiry form.


Notification function of alert settings Created alert settings  can be notified by e-mail to the target employee  when the standard value is met. See here for  details on "Notification Settings" .

Supplement 2

Alerts have an item called "Priority order". 


"Alerts" are checked in order of priority, and those that match the monitoring criteria are applied. Therefore, if there are multiple alerts with the same target attendance, the alerts will not be displayed as desired if the "priority" is incorrect. 


The order of priority is the display order. You can move with " ∧ " and " v " on the right side. 





In this case, the higher priority is the yellow alert "over 20 hours overtime". If "20 hours or more overtime", which has a smaller number of monitoring reference hours, has a higher priority, when the overtime hours in a month reaches 30 hours or more, the alert "20 hours or more overtime" will match first, so "Overtime 30 hours or more" alert does not apply. Please raise the priority of the alert "more than 30 hours of overtime".
