Vacation Requests and Alerts
It would be great if an approve or deny feature for time off requests could be implemented. And then if there was a push notification for upcoming time off requests so that the scheduler is reminded of who needs time off when, in advance, without having to scroll through the calendar. This feature exists in other time sheet apps and is very appealing, such as SwipeClock and Namely. Right now, we are relying on multiple methods of tracking this time off along side Clock Shark and requests get overlooked this way.
Thanks for the input, everyone, on how you would like to see Vacation tracking integrated with ClockShark. It looks like this idea is very specific, and has many parts, so please keep voting and adding as much detail as possible, so we know exactly what to add for you.
As we respond to the suggestions with the most votes, we’ll keep you updated in the “comments” section. Thanks for taking the time to share the features you’d like to see added to ClockShark. :)
Vacation / PTO time off - a separate line item on reports that totals vacation hours separately from normal hours

Allow employees to request time off through the App with an approval process that would add the request to the schedule. Right now our employees request a day off or a time they need to be done to get to an appointment via text and then we come in and manually enter it. The problem is, sometimes the requests come through when we aren't in front of QuickBooks and requests get overlooked!! This feature is available on other time tracking apps.

Employees will be able to request time off
A link to request vacation or time off that is sent to the administrator, then there is a trail.

To Add Sick pay and Vacation Pay. To show how much has been used as well.
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)
Staff and Client Availability function including, PTO for staff (vacation, sick, etc.) and reporting for totals per quarter and year.

Allow employees to request time off whether its a unpaid day off, vacation or PTO. And allow Admins to accept, deny or partially deny(ie they requested 40hrs and you will only allow 20 hrs) these requests.

An easy way for employees to show they are using PTO.
I'd like to have extra features like docusign , or to add at time sheet report : Paid time off hours and Paid sick leave hrs .
Employees can request to not be scheduled on a day, if submitted 5 days prior. That way they won't be given a new assignment without a check.
Have the ability for employees to request vacation days from their mobile device in advance. It would be helpful that all employees see a yearly calendar some no one can request for the same days off.
