I suggest you ...

Deny clock in access

Do not allow an employee to clock in until they are in the GPS fencing area. This way there is no mistakingly clocking in on the way to work .

    Thanks for the idea, Bruno. We’ll definitely consider this. Up until now, preventing an employee from clocking in because of their location is a little squirrelly for both parties. So we have a created a conservative in-between.

    Currently, you can set up Out of Bounds alerts in ClockShark that will alert you if an employee is clocking in/out from outside the GPS Fence. Let me share an article on how to set that up: http://help.clockshark.com/knowledgebase/articles/1135408-using-gps-fence-geofencing

    Out of Bounds alerts will make you aware anytime an employee clocks time when they’re not on the jobsite. We’ll keep our eyes on this idea’s feedback to see if that setting needs to be more restrictive. Keep on voting, folks.

        the geo fence option doesn't really help to much, I really think we need another option to either approve or deny clock ins. my employees are taking advantage of this and its starting to become an issue, if i set a schedule at 7am to 3pm I don't want to see them clocking in at 6am. yes I can adjust this myself but part of the reason I came to clockshark was to lessen the need for correcting these things. please give it some thought. thank you

        I would like to be able to block employees from clocking in until their scheduled shift is set to begin. Also, on the reverse side of this I would like some sort of an alert to pop-up to an employee when they clock out letting them know they they went over "so many minutes/hours past their scheduled shift" so they are aware of their hours worked. Something along these lines to keep employees within their scheduled shifts.
