Tip Tuesday – Time Clock Basics

Welcome back to Tip Tuesday! This week we will be talking about the tips and tricks to using the time clock as an employee and implementing it as a manager/administrator.

Implementing The Time Clock

In order for your employees to be allowed to use the time clock, you first need to go to the general options on your account and make sure that “Use Attendance” is checked. The time clock is a user level feature, meaning that you turn it on and off at the user level. Therefore, if you have certain employees that are not paid hourly, then you may chose to not use the time clock for them. However, since it is at the user level you can have some users use it, but not others. In order to run it on at the user level you simply go to the user record for a user that you would like to implement it for then under the Attendance tab simply check “Use Time Clock”.

Using The Time Clock

The time clock is very easy to use. Once you sign into your account as an employee there should be a box titled “You are clocked out”. Within the box there is text saying “Click here to clock in”. Upon clicking this text, you will be clocked into the system and the text on the title will change to “You are clocked in.” while the text within the box will change to “Click here to clock out.” If you would prefer a different way to clock in, you can also drop down “My Attendance” on the left-hand menu and click “Clock in” or “Clock out”.

Upon clocking out from your shift, a time block will be automatically added to the attendance schedule for the hours the employee was clock in for. Managers and admins can see this under the “Attendance Schedule”. You will then have the total hours that each employee was clocked in for so that you can run payroll for those exact hours!
