I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Direct Employee Messaging

    There should be a way for an Admin to directly message the phone of all (or certain) employees through ClockShark.

      Hi Chris!

      Depending on what information needs to be communicated to employees (schedule changes, upcoming job start time), there may already be a notification available in ClockShark. Feel free to check out http://help.clockshark.com/knowledgebase/articles/1133746-using-notifications to see how those notifications suit your needs. :)

      Regarding the ability to craft particular messages and send them directly through the app, this is a request that we are hearing more-and-more. I’m sharing this with our development team, and we’ll continue to monitor the votes here for this idea, so we can know when we should add that for you.

      If you have any other ideas or suggestions, you can let me know at cliff@clockshark.com. I love to hear how we can improve ClockShark for you.

    • Improved vacation tracking

      I would love to see better vacation and reporting features:
      -a separate line item on reports that totals vacation hours
      -Quickbooks integration for vacation hours
      -vacation time requests within the app that would automatically add the vacation hours once the request is approved

      Features that would be handy, though not essential:
      -vacation accrual tracking, so employees could see how much time they have available and how much they've used in the pay period
      -settings that auto-fill vacation if employee hasn't worked the weekly minimum hours (i.e. 40)

        • schedule

          I would like a option for schedule days off , holidays etc. also would like to have the scheduler go at least a month out I know you can go a month but I think it should be like the one week two week option.

            Hi Joe,

            A great way that our customers note holidays and off days in ClockShark is by naming both a Job & Task as “OFF” or “Holiday”, and then placing it in employee timesheets and schedules. Do you think that helps out with keeping track of those days?

            With respect to the schedule view, you are correct. The month view of the scheduler does look a little different, just to display all days in the month in one screen. I’ll definitely pass along your suggestion for making that like the single/double week view.

            We’ll also monitor the votes here to see what other ClockShark users think of the idea too! I’d love to hear any other suggestions you may have.

          • Calendar Search Feature

            When in the calendar, there needs to be a Search field, so we can see if a particular job or appointment has already been put on the calendar, and when it is scheduled.

            • Job Grouping

              It would be helpful to be able to sort jobs by some sort of category, similar to what you can do with Employees and Departments. All of our jobs are assigned to specific manager it would be nice to be able to sort the jobs by the particular manager. Secondly some of our Jobs have multiple job site address. To allow ClockShark to work we have to separate the job into multiple Jobs in ClockShark. This is fine, but it would be nice to group these separate jobs in ClockShark.

              • Make GPS ping time adjustable

                Make GPS ping time adjustable between 5 minutes and 30 minutes in 5 minute increments per employee. That would allow for tighter control on troublesome employees and looser control on good employees.

                  Hi Glen,

                  This is a really great suggestion! Currently, ClockShark updates an employee’s location at 15 minute intervals. This is a conservative interval that ensures that employee cell batteries aren’t taxed by using their GPS.

                  Thanks for explaining why a different interval would be so helpful to your company. As your idea catches steam here on our voting page, we’ll look into adding that to ClockShark. :)

                • Add a separate field for Parts/Tools Used

                  Add a Parts/Tools Used Field, much like the notes field.

                  In our line of business we use all sorts of tools and do many runs for parts everyday, a place to input those aside from the notes field would be superb! Please and Thank You!

                  • you should be able to add attachments from the schedule screen , not have to go back to the jobs screen every time.

                    it make no sense that we would need to go to jobs screen to add attachments without option to add at schedule screen , since jobs are changing and being updated all the time, would be quicker and more efficient to add on the go and when setting up schedule .

                      Thanks for sharing this idea here, James. We hear this suggestion from time to time, so it will be great to have this post where folks can register their support.

                      We will keep this under consideration for a future update.

                    • Payrates for reports

                      It would be nice if there was a way to put in the employees pay rate so when you run a report on a job you can see not only the hours but also how many hours per employee times their pay rate to have a more accurate accounting of the total job labor cost.

                      • kiosk mode time punch

                        I would like to have a kiosk mode type of time punch. I have guys out the the shop environment that i would like to punch in using a dedicated computer station. The problem so far is the need to log in and out with passwords is a bit time consuming. Not all my guys have smart phones and the ones who do i would rather not go that route as it could lead to them texting and playing around with the phone during production hours

                        • Custom Reports

                          Allow an option for setting up a custom report. I want to be able to spit out my employees time sheets in a certain order like by day with job number, task, total time that day for that task, and then a sum total of the hours worked that day as well as a week total. Right now I have to get an excel file from clock shark and then convert formats and copy and paste it into a excel template I've made. It's very time consuming.

                          • Auto Clock In & Auto Clock Out, Based on GPS Location & Geo Fences

                            I would LOVE to see the option on Clock Shark !!

                            There are already other products that offer the same functionality of Auto Clock In & Auto Clock Out, Based on GPS Location & Geo-Fences.
                            Its offered by a company called (My geo-tracking) they call it a touchless time card & it doesn't even require an app to be installed on the phone.

                            The only issue that the online dashboard and setup process for us managers is complicated and confusing.
                            clock shark is much more user-friendly.

                                Thanks for sharing your idea, Shelly. Making ClockShark something that clients interact with too is definitely something we will want to explore, especially as your idea garners more votes.

                                Feel free to let me know if you have any other suggestions: I love to hear them.

                              • Adjust screen size when adding notes on iPhone.

                                When I try to add notes on my iPhone, the keyboard comes up and completely covers the notes section, so I can't see what I'm typing. This worked fine on the previous generation of Clockshark, but is no longer working after the latest update.

                                  Thanks for the suggestion! Our engineers our planning to roll this out in the next app release, so this will update soon. Sorry for the temporary inconvenience of that screen.

                                • Make the schedule private until you are ready to publish it for your employees to see it.

                                  Make it wear if your working on a schedule your employees can not see it until your ready for them to. In some businesses we work on schedules a couple of weeks out but may need to change them. Your software allows everyone to see it and that's a problem!

                                    Hey Rebecka, thanks for the suggestion. Having a “staging” schedule is a great idea, so thanks for posting it here for others to vote on.

                                    As support rolls in, we’ll keep you updated on any development plans.

                                  • Warning, Flag or Error notice for overlapping times on time sheet

                                    It would be very helpful if the time sheet would provide some sort of flag, caution, or error notice that 2 jobs have overlapping times allocated to them. Without an automated warning, there’s a very real possibility that an administrator won’t catch the error and an employee will be overpaid.

                                          Hi Audra, thanks for the suggestion. Just to clarify, where would you like the notes to be visible? Employees in the app should be able to review their entered notes, and admins should find them on the website.

                                          If you have any questions about where to find those notes in-app, feel free to give us a call @ 1.800.828.0689. We’d love to make sure that everything is working as it should for you.

                                        • Add a hover feature on the schdule page so that when you hover over a job that is scheduled you can see the notes and details.

                                          Add a hover feature on the schedule page so that you can see the job information (like what is being done or notes) without having to click on edit shift and then cancel out of it
