KB39081: WFS breaks configured less than 15 minutes not scheduled correctly

Article ID: 50937 - Last Review: September 14, 2010


Workforce Scheduling breaks that are configured to be less than 15 minutes long are not scheduled correctly.


Breaks configured to be 5 or 10 minutes long cannot be scheduled to their configured length when "Smallest Scheduling Interval" in User Preference is set to 15 minutes or greater. When drop inserting the break onto an already scheduled shift, the scheduled break ends up having a duration of 15 minutes.  Also, when scheduling the break with Schedule Builder, no breaks of this type are scheduled.


This is caused by a logic error in the code.


In user preferences, change the drop down value for "Smallest Scheduling Interval" to 5 minutes.  This will allow you to insert breaks of the correct duration.


If using a Fixed Shift type, configure and associate a Fixed Break of duration 5 or 10 minutes to the Fixed Shift type and Drop Insert this shift.  However, there is no workaround for the inability to schedule 5 and 10 minute breaks in Schedule Builder.
