2.1Time and Attendance
Time and Attendance is used to track and manage employee hours. Employees use the time clock feature to enter arrival and departure times, as well as adjust any missing hours or benefit hours. Managers use other features to approve adjusted hours, enter missing hours, and see the total number of hours worked by each employee for each employee.
The Time and Attendance features are located in the Navigator under the Time Clock section.
How to Clock In or Out
When an employee arrives at work, he will clock in by either typing his username and password, or by swiping his employee card. After the correct information is entered in the fields, select the Clock In button to clock in, and theClock Out button to clock out. The date and time are listed as well to show the date and time of arrival/departure. The date and time shown will be the date and time recorded on the entry.
A warning will appear if you are clocked in and try to clock in again, or if you are clocked out and try to clock out again.
Entering Missing Entries and Benefit Hours
Selecting the More button on the Clockin/Clockout window allows an employee to edit his time card. Employees are not able to edit any clock entries, but they are able to manually enter missing entries or enter benefit hours. The manager in time of time clock will have the ability to approve or override any information entered in this window.
Adding an Entry
Adding a manual entry will help your employees keep their time sheets up to date and correct. If an employee misses an entry, when he tries to clock in or out a warning will pop up informing him that he’s missing an entry.
He can log in to his time sheet and make the corrections. The message will continue popping up until the work week is over, or the correction is made.
