What are Work Patterns and What do they do?

Work patterns work alongside the Time On (timesheets) and Time Off (Leave tracking) modules of HRLocker

Assigning a work pattern tells HRLocker which days are working days and their working hours for any employee on any given day of the year. It also allows HRLocker to auto populate timesheets for convenience, and to accurately capture timesheet data when employees are on leave.

Knowing how many hours are in each employee's working day also facilitates HRLocker in operating our Hourly Leave system.
