Time in Lieu or Rostered Day Off

RDO (Rostered Day Off) and TIL (Time In Lieu) are used to keep track and manage the extra hours worked by employees, which can be used as a leave balance at a later date.

TIL or RDO settings are used to automatically accrue these balances.


Enable TIL or RDO in the Global Settings.

If your employees are entitled to RDO's or TIL you can set this in the entitlement settings section of your Global settings.

Navigate to Menu > Settings > General > Global > Entitlement Settings

Change the Rostered Day Off Time in Lieu settings to either RDO or TIL


Auto TIL

The auto TIL setting can be used to automatically balance out an employees hours in comparison to the Basic Hours set in their Employee Profile.

Code lookup

Codes can be used to add a payment to the employee every time the code is present in the roster notes.

This can also be used for Time In Lieu, for example, when an employee works an hour longer than normal.

We can put in the code TIL@60 in the notes and this will  automatically take the 60 minutes and add it to the

TIL balance when you run payroll. Please note, this only works if entered in minutes. 

Code lookup for TIL

When you run payroll, the 60 minutes will automatically be taken off the total hours.


 The hour taken off is automatically added to the TIL balance.
