Rounding groups in EXO Time & Attendance

Exo Time & Attendance is used to track employees clock in and clock out times, with that information being imported in Payroll. Rounding groups allow the system to set the employees times into pre-set blocks, depending on the set up of the group.

Rounding groups are used by ExoTime & Attendance to adjust an employees times to a pre-set block to avoid inconsistent rounding of the times.

To create a new rounding group
  1. Go to the Maintenance menu then click on Rounding Groups.
  2. Click on the Add:F4 button or press the F4 key.
  3. Enter a code for the Group and a brief description.
  4. Type in the Round IN and Round OUT times for this group.
  5. Click on the Save:F10 button or press the F10 key to save this group.

Round IN Times

The Round IN time determines the threshold to which the times are rounded when an employee clocks in. "Round IN Times Backwards Up To" sets the limit at which Time & Attendance will round the times backwards , while "Round IN Times Forwards To Next" gives the limit to which any times will be rounded forwards.

For example, having a Round IN Backwards limit of 3 minutes and a Round IN Forwards limit of 5 minutes will give the following results:

In Times rounded backwards to 8:30: 8:30, 8:31, 8:32, 8:33

In Times rounded forwards to 8:35: 8:34, 8:35

Round OUT Times

The Round OUT time determines the threshold for times when an employee clocks out. Round OUT Times Forward Up To sets the limit at which Time & Attendance will round the Out times forwards, with Round OUT Times Backwards to Previous defining the limit for rounding them back.

For example, a rounding group with Round OUT Forwards of 3 minutes and a Round Out Backwards limit of 5 minutes would give the following results:

Out Times rounded forwards to 17:05: 17:02, 17:03, 17:04, 17:05

Out Times rounded backwards to 17:00: 17:00, 17:01

Rounding Group thresholds are overridden by the Anchoring setup on any Daily Rules that the employees have assigned to them.
