Weekly Overtime Alerts


Managing employee overtime can be a challenging task, but with our Weekly Overtime Alerts feature, it's easier than ever to stay informed and take action. This feature allows you to create customizable alerts to ensure that admins, managers, and employees are aware of impending or occurring overtime. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to set up and use these alerts effectively.

Why Weekly Overtime Alerts Matter

Weekly Overtime Alerts play a crucial role in managing labor costs, complying with labor laws, and ensuring employees' well-being. By receiving timely notifications, all parties can stay informed about overtime status, helping to prevent unauthorized or unexpected overtime work. This not only helps in efficient payroll management but also in maintaining a balanced workload for employees.

How to Set Up Weekly Overtime Alerts


  1. Go to Settings in your Timeero dashboard.
  2. Navigate to the Notifications section.
  3. Under Notifications, select the Advanced Options category.
  4. Tap on Add Overtime Alerts.
  5. Title Your Alert: Give your new alert a meaningful title to easily identify it later.
  6. Select Alert Timing: You can choose to be notified before overtime or after overtime. Decide which one suits your needs best.
  7. Set Notification Timing: Specify the number of hours before or after overtime when you want to be notified. For example, you can set the alert to notify you 1 hour before overtime occurs or 3 hours after it happens.
  8. You can assign the alert to individual employees or to a group of employees. Ensure that the employees are assigned to a specific payroll.
  9. Tap Add alert to finalize the setup.
  10. Choose Notification Method: Admins can set up how notifications will be received, either via email or push notification.
  11. Tap Save to finalize the setup.

How It Works

Once your alert is set up, you will receive an email or push notification based on the timing you specified, provided the employee is clocked in. If the employee is not on the clock, no email will be sent, ensuring that notifications are relevant and timely.

Benefits of Weekly Overtime Alerts
