Automatically clock employees in when they enter the geofence.
Our employees are not remembering to clock in. My employees are having trouble remembering to clock in and out which makes us have to manually enter their time and makes the app a little less useful to us.
Thanks for the suggestion, Nicole. Clocking employees in precisely on the dot using the GPS in the phone is difficult to make work reliably from a technical standpoint, but our development team is always exploring this as a possibility. We’ll keep you and all other voters up to date on the status of this request.

This would be a good feature set for a specific employee who doesn't understand the system or have a up to date mobile device
I would like this feature also. When you say "squirrelly practice" do you mean ethically or technically?
I would like this option also. We should be able to set a predetermined schedule of say 8 to 5. If they are in the geo fence at these times it should auto clock in and out. If the employee is going to work an hour late then they could manually edit. The last thing I want to see are all my guys sitting there at 3 min to quitting so that they can clock out at right time or myself having to edit everyone times.
If this is added, please make it an option. It is not uncommon to drive past job sites when traveling around town - the auto clock in would have you in/out of multiple job sites that were not worked.
I do think a "ping" would be good so that a report can be generated to check the "ping" against when the clock in/out actually happened.

I don't think clocking them in is necessary nor a good thing when they arrive on site, a good employee shows up early so they are ready to work when the shift starts. But, since clockshark already knows when they cross the geofence it would be nice to be able to see this information.
It is always the notoriously late employee that seems to be the one that "forgot" to clock in. I'm sure this is the same at the end of the day with the employee that always leaves 15 minutes early as well. This would really help with time theft as well as rewarding and promoting responsible employees.
Auto clock in or out when they leave the GEO fence would be extremly helpful, we have to many " forgeting to clock out" makes it hard to know when they really left the job.

As well as auto clocking out when they leave
