· When entering time for workers who have a schedule assigned, the auto-fill feature can be used to automatically enter time blocks for the week.

· If necessary, time blocks can be adjusted after the entries are populated from the auto-fill feature.

· Automatic lunch times will display for workers who have them built into their schedule.

· If a worker doesn’t have a schedule assigned, the auto-fill feature will not be available.
