Setting the Period of an Event Log

Click on the Period menu on the left to determine the timescale of the Log.

"Start Time" and "Duration" determine the total period of the Log. Selected Day means that when we run the Log the user will be able to select a day from a calendar. We want to report on a single day so the duration is 1 day.

The interval length for a log should normally always be set to the same value as the duration. The "Day Start" field is set to TIME[DAYSTART] - this means the Log will start at the beginning of the first shift. The "Day End" is set to TIME[DAYEND] so the Log ends at the end of the final shift.

If your first shift starts at 6 am and you run three shifts ending at 6 the next morning, the graph above will run from 6 to 6, not from Midnight to Midnight.
