Use the ShiftBreak table to manage break information for a specified shift.

Note Note

This table supports Response integrations for Fleet accounts.

Each ShiftBreak provides the following information:

  • Break start time
  • Break duration
  • The Id or name of the shift that the break applies to

You can create multiple breaks for a given shift. For example, you might want to define morning and afternoon breaks along with a separate lunch break for the same shift. If you assign multiple breaks to the same ShiftId, each break must have a unique name.

You can also specify whether the break must start at a specific time or within a specified time range.

Tip Tip

Before assigning breaks to a shift, use the Shift start time, end time, and maximum duration to calculate the time range for the shift. Then, make sure that all breaks assigned to the shift fall within that time range.

This topic contains the following sections:


To Create a new ShiftBreak, at a minimum the following columns must be provided:

  • Name
  • ShiftId
  • EarliestStartTime
  • Duration
If you are creating a break that can start within a time range, you must also specify the LatestStartTime.

To Update or Delete a shift, only the ShiftBreak Id is required.
