Thanks for sharing your support for this idea here! As support continues to mount for this idea, our development team will plan how to bring this to you in ClockShark. :)
Reading this idea, and all the comments below, I can see that the consensus is that administrators would like a way to designate an Off/Holiday/PTO day, without having to insert any time for an employee. Currently, in ClockShark there is an available workaround that’s equivalent to the feature being requested.
If you’d like to see how to designate that an employee will be taking (or took) a day off, Morgan from our Customer Success team explains how to do that here: https://soapbox.wistia.com/videos/SkNhqgi9Kc

POST-IT NOTES to schedule board.
Have the ability to write notes on a certain day without having to schedule a job to do so.
Hi, thanks for the feedback. We’re always working on ways to improve GPS accuracy and performance. To a certain degree, the ClockShark app is reliant on the device itself in this regard.In terms of the update interval, 3-4 times per hour is used currently to minimize battery drain and create the best overall balance of system performance.
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 email@example.com. I love to hear how we can improve ClockShark for you.Linley Meisch commented
This is useful if you have any employee who is part time (and cant work after 2pm) or if an employee has a specific day(s) off for sickness/vacation etc or if the company is closed for Holidays or for any other work related reason.
Kind of like a Post-it note on the schedule.
