In the Facility Codes section, you can define codes to be used when you have more than one location/facility. Facility setup is used to segregate the employees from different Facilities for time zone purposes, for running the payroll output file, for printing reports, or as part of the system security for lockout etc. You can create an unlimited number of Facility Codes.

UDF 1 & UDF 2 (User Definable Fields)
Type the desired data into the two UDF fields (optional), up to nine characters alpha numeric. These are user defined fields allowing you to further describe the facility.
Time Shift (h) & Time Zones
Use these two options when your company’s Facilities are in different time zones. Employees assigned to different Facilities will see time stamps on their system that reflect their time zone e.g., the time stamps on messages for Shift Exchanges or Time Off Requests, and reports such as the Call Log, Audit Trail or Login History.
▪Double click to enter the Time Shift field the number of hours the employees in this Facility are behind or ahead of the server's time zone. For example, the StaffScheduleCare servers are in the Eastern Time Zone and the USA Division's facility is in the Pacific Time Zone, which is three (3) hours behind the server's time. For this Facility we have entered a -3 in the Time Shift field to represent the 3:00 hour time difference.
▪Click on the Time Zone field and select from the drop-down menu. We have selected Pacific Time.
