Can you use shift to bind together the entries for a single overnight shift (which spreads over two days) for overtime calculation?

Employee's general shift is 8PM to 4 AM.

If employee enters time like 8PM - 1AM (Monday), 2AM- 7AM (Tuesday), your expectation is that all the hours (10) will be used for calculation of Monday overtime. 2AM- 7AM block of time has the start time inside of employee's shift and should be counted for Monday's overtime calculation.  But the current system has no impact on the explosion even when you attach a shift to an employee through rotation plan value on earning policy. Current system takes the 2AM- 7AM (Tuesday) entry as part of Tuesday's entry and does not use it as part of time from last night shift to add to Monday's overtime calculation.

If employee is attached to a shift through an earning policy, you would expect to see the hours grouped together for a single day in case of overnight shift.
