KioskClock™ allows multiple employees to clock in from a single tablet or smartphone, using only 4 digit PIN. This feature is perfect for any situation you would use a traditional time clock. KioskClock™ transforms a mobile device into an easy-to-use time clock, and can be placed in a central location so employees can easily access it.
To use KioskClock™, you first need to enable it for the employee that you'd like to have KioskClock™ permissions. To give an employee permission to use KioskClock™, visit the employee's settings via the website in the menu under Admin > Employees.
In the settings screen for each employee you will find an option labeled "Allow Clocking In Using KioskClock™ via Mobile". Check this box to enable the employee to use KioskClock™.
To enable facial recognition with KioskClock™, check the "Require Photo Capture" box. To deter buddy-punching and provide peace of mind, each time an employee clocks in, KioskClock™ will take a picture and compare it to the reference photo of the employee. You can read more about facial recognition here. 👈
There are two roles within KioskClock™, Administrator and User. Administrators can enter and exit KioskClock™ mode, while KioskClock™ Users are only allowed to clock in and out using their PIN when the app is in KioskClock™ mode. Once you’ve selected the employee’s role, finish by creating a 4-digit PIN they will use to clock in and out with at the KioskClock™.
Once enabled, the KioskClock™ Administrator may need to log out of their mobile app and log back in. Once they log back in, they will see a new menu option in the mobile app labeled KioskClock™.
From this menu item, the Administrator can put the mobile device into KioskClock™ mode using their 4 digit PIN. (Note: only the Administrator who initiates KioskClock™ on the device can take it out of KioskClock™.)
Once the device is in KioskClock™, employees will enter their 4-digit PIN to clock in and out. After they enter their PIN, they will choose their job and task on the following screens, and then clock in. 🕑
Note: If you have facial recognition enabled, KioskClock™ will switch to camera mode and photograph the employee before clocking them in.
The punches will be visible in near-real time in your web-based dashboard, along with the GPS location of the punches. Whenever they need to switch jobs, or clock out, they will simply re-enter their PIN and perform that action.
At any point, employees can re-enter their PIN to view their current clocked in status, switch jobs, or start their breaks. Pressing the red “Exit” button will return the KioskClock™ to its home screen, and allow another user to enter their PIN.
To take the device out of KioskClock™ mode, the Administrator will press “Exit Kiosk” in the top right of the screen, and then re-enter their PIN. This will return the device to the ClockShark mobile app.
Administrators can exit KioskClock™ while their employees are clocked in on KioskClock™ if they need to check timesheets or employee schedules. Be sure to check out our help page on Manager Permissions so you can enable those permissions to anyone who isn’t a company administrator.
Note: Check out how to lock a tablet or smartphone so that it can only run ClockShark's KioskClock™.
And voila! You’re now all set to go and use KioskClock™ like a pro! Remember: with KioskClock™, multiple employees can clock into work from a single smartphone or tablet using a 4-digit PIN. This timeclock on a tablet can go in the office, at the site, or in the truck: anywhere you need to take a timeclock.
Oh, and it includes fool-proof facial recognition. 🖻
