The main reason you would schedule lunch in the Roster is if you want the time taken for lunch to be accounted for in the Wages Report.
If you are using Simple Rostering (or don't need to schedule lunch in the roster), please visit the 'Scheduling Lunch (Or Time Off) Using the 'Tasks' Feature' article to learn how to use tasks to schedule lunch breaks.
Otherwise, to schedule lunch in the Roster, follow the steps below:
1. Go to Roster.
2. Click the + button next to the operator who you'd like to schedule Lunch for.
3. On the right hand side panel choose Lunch from Roster Type drop down menu. If you haven't got lunch there, visit our Setting up your Roster with Advanced Rostering article to learn how to create your roster types.
4. Choose the days and the time lunch starts and finishes, and Save.
5. Then you would click the + button again, and add in a Rostered ON roster type before lunch, and another one after lunch to fill out the hours that they're working.

Lunch Using the Tasks Feature
If you don't need to track wages for Lunch, you can use the Tasks feature to schedule lunch on your Appointments Page instead of your Roster. This way is the same as Simple Rostering, you can learn how to do this by visiting our Scheduling Lunch (Or Time Off) Using the 'Tasks' Feature article.
