How does it work?
As an admin, you can create and define a project in the Time Management Settings to be an exclusive Travel Hours Project for your company. This is done in order to avoid a user's work hour balance from exceeding and getting out of hand.
For example, if the daily work hours for a user is 7.5h / day and if they
are working for 6 hours on project-related work and require 6 hours for project-related commute, this would mean the user's daily work hours would be 12h, i.e 4.5h of flexitime/overtime.
However, If the Travel Hours are enabled in the Settings, the 6h spent on project-related work can be tracked as regular work hours to the project and the additional 6h on commute can be tracked to the Travel Hours Project. This way, the work hour balance will only calculate the hours spent on project-related work and the additional hours will not affect the hour balance.
