      12-13-16 – This feature is now released. You’ll find the Alerts screen on the website is now called Notifications and includes controls for clock in and out reminders to employees via email and mobile push notifications! Your employees will need the latest version of the mobile app for the new feature to work.

    • Optimize administration website for mobile viewing or provide mobile app for admin tasks

      The administration pages currently are not optimized for mobile viewing. It's often not practical to login from a laptop of desktop so it would be nice to be able to see and edit the guy's times from mobile.

      • Geofencing

        Geo fences to allow users to clock time only when they are at a jobsite. Once they enter the fenced area they can clock in and if they leave they are clocked out, etc. Or, you'd see alerts on the time sheet when the punches are outside the geofence.

        • Allow users to make a photo note to the boss with a short audio recording or allow documents and PDFs to be attached and shared.

          Typing takes time and can be difficult especially when you're working with your hands and a picture says a thousand words. Employees should be able to easily take a picture and speak a note to the boss with one hand. Example: "We need 2 more of these." with a picture of the code on a paint can lid. The uses would be endless. The app could also convert the audio notes to text and send the pic and text as an email or text message to the boss or supervisor. The admin could also share PDFs or photos with the…

            We’re happy to announce that a preview of the new file attachments feature is now available. From the mobile app, employees can now attach photos (or any other document) to their time sheet and you’ll be able to see it alongside their timesheet. You can even see the files appear in real-time from your Who’s Working Now Screen. Like magic! Let us know what you think!

                Hi All,

                I’m excited to share that you can now schedule employees directly from the mobile app! :) By navigating to the Menu > Schedule screen, you can change to view to see any employee’s upcoming schedule, and you can even edit it, and then notify the employee too. :)

                You may be curious if this new permission extends to employees too? It sure does. Using the “Manager Permissions”, you can allow an employee (say a foreman or office manager) to view the schedules of other employees. To learn how to set that up, feel free to check out our help article: http://help.clockshark.com/knowledgebase/articles/1803031

                Without having to race to a computer to check schedules, now you and your employees can stay up-to-date on who is supposed to be where! Thanks for your patience as we developed this feature for you. :)

                If you have any other suggestions or ideas, please let…

              • Employees should be able to clock into a job from the Schedule

                Employees should be able to clock into a job from the Schedule, on the mobile app, instead of having to search for the jobs in the job list. It would save time and it would also decrease the amount of errors of employees clocking into the wrong job.

                  Hi everyone, great news! Employees can now clock in to a job directly from their schedule in both the Android and Apple mobile apps. Enjoy! We love bringing you new features to run your business better.

                • SUPERVISOR employee type

                  need a SUPERVISOR employee type. Has access on web to schedule and "who working" but doesn't have the ability to edit company, add employees or other admin stuff.

                    Mid-level permissions for managers/supervisors are now available for the employee role. Look for the Manager Permissions section on each Employee profile page to control what manager functions each employee can do! Enjoy!

                    • scheduling employees: allow default start and end times, or let us copy and paste

                      1) Let us set a default start and end time since most contractors have a regular start and end time to their work day. This way we don't have to adjust the start and end times for each day we schedule an employee.

                      You could also allow us to copy and paste a schedule from one day to another and then we can edit it from there if we needed to. This would make it easier to schedule as well.

                        Hey everyone, in the scheduler on the website, when scheduling employees you’ll now be able to select from a list of recently used times. You can also now copy a shift to another employee or group of employees. Enjoy!

                      • Allow users to see notes they have entered for previous day(s) entries

                        Allow a user to see what notes they have entered on previous days time entries. Currently if I enter a note on Mondays time log, I can't go back on Wednesday and see what notes I entered.

                          Adding the ability to see notes for previous days entries will be added to the mobile app soon.

                          Update—We recently released an update to the time sheets view in the mobile app, which allows employees to review time sheets from previous weeks as well as see totals of overtime and straight time hours for the week. That update paved the way for the next round of planned updates to the mobile app, which will include the ability to see previously entered notes and edit them or add notes retroactively to a previously worked segment of time.

                          Update – This feature is added :)

                        • Additional Overtime Rules Options

                          Need the ability to make a Task exempt from overtime calculations. For example, hours recorded to Travel do not count in overtime calculations.
                          Also need ability to set the entire weekend as overtime, so Saturday and Sunday are always overtime hours.

                              Good news! This feature is now released and called GPSTrak Background Locations. The Android mobile app update that makes the feature work is now released on the Google Play Store, however we are waiting for Apple to release the iOS version. We expect that the iOS version will be released in the next week. In the meantime you can start getting your Android users on board. They’ll need to update their mobile app, and you’ll also need to enable the feature for them in your Employees Screen in the website.

                              For full disclosure, this is not a 100% real time tracking feature, but it does provide updates on location 3-4 times per hour while the employee is clocked in. That was done (as opposed to continuous tracking) to keep battery drain and data usage to a minimum, while still providing an assurance of where employees are during their shift.

                            • Allow manual time sheets to be entered in mobile app

                              Employees should be able to enter a manual timesheet in the mobile app in case they miss punching in or out, etc. This timesheet would be flagged in the admin interface so it is clear when reviewing timesheets that it was entered manually instead of captured by the time clock in real-time.

                              This feature could be toggled on or off by the administrator since not all companies may want employees to be able to enter a manual timesheet.

                                    It would be helpful to be able to add more than one employee at a time to a jobsite shift rather than individually adding them.

                                    • List GPS time signatures pinged for an employee.

                                      When an employee is a 1 spot for a while all the GPS location pings are "pancaked" one on top of the other, so finding the "latest" ping at that location can be challenging and take multiple attempts, then sometimes you can never be sure THAT time was the latest if an employee leaves the job site and didn't clock out like they were supposed to.
                                      Having access to a list of times the employee was pinged, in chronological order, would be helpful. Then I can take the time the employee left the site and the time they were pinged…

                                        Hi Linley :)

                                        I am happy to share that we have just released an updated view of the GPS Trak feature that removes the pancaked (that is a great image of how that used to work!) view of GPS pings. Using the new feature, you can move step-by-step through an employee’s day and see all recorded GPS locations individually. No more “Where’s Waldo”. :)

                                        If you’d like to read more about it, you can do so at https://www.clockshark.com/Blog/feature-update-all-new-gpstrak/. Will you let me know what you think of that updated feature?

                                        The one thing we love more than hearing customer suggestions is making them a reality. Thanks for your patience as we updated that feature for you! If you have any other questions or suggestions, let me know so I can pass them along!

                                      • Allow users the ability to see more prior clock-in and clock-out hours.

                                        Current "My Recent Activity" only lets a user see the time/date of their last 9 clock-in events. For example, Clock-In counts as 1, Out for Lunch as 2, back from Lunch as 3, out at end of day as 4, etc.. You can really only see the latest 2 days clock-in and out times. It would be nice for us to see the back history a little further for those of us that maintain paper timesheets in addition to Clock Shark.

                                          The latest versions of the ClockShark mobile app now include a more powerful time sheet view that allows employees to view their time sheets for the current week and previous periods. The view also shows them their regular time hours, overtime hours and (if enabled in Company Settings) doubletime hours for the current and previous periods. The time sheet they see is pulled from the system, so any changes you make to the time sheet as an administrator will be reflected on what the employee sees in the app.

                                            Thanks for this idea! Employee can be given permission to manually edit their time, which allows them to revisit completed timsheets and edit their notes.

                                            Feel free to check out Admin > Employees > Edit Employee to add that permission to the employee profile.
