Setup for mobile clocking in
Please Note: The features discussed below are part of the Time & Attendance add-on package, and are not included in the standard subscription. To learn more about Time & Attendance and start a 14-day free trial, go to the Attendance section in RotaCloud.
Mobile clocking in lets employees use the RotaCloud mobile app to clock in and out of their shifts. The app is available to download on iOS and Android.
You can enable mobile clocking in during the initial set up of Time & Attendance or via your Account Settings >> Settings under the Time & Attendance subsection.
Mobile clocking in will automatically track an employees location using their phone's GPS service. Each record on the timesheet will include a map of where the employee clocked in from.
You can also limit where employees can use the app as well. To attach an address to a location go to the Company >> Locations page and type the address and postcode into the "Address" field.
You can then set how close employees must be to this address to clock in or out via the 'Employees can clock in / out from...' drop down list.
To clock in and out, employees simply open the app and click the clock in/out button. The app will tell the employee their location at the time of clocking in and it automatically will prevent them from doing so if you have set a limit and they are too far away.
