TimeForge is the leader in labor management and includes a number of features not found in other software. For example, TimeForge allows you to enforce your employee schedule, and keep track of your staff’s attendance.
When an employee attempts to clock in too early or clock out too late, TimeForge will require that a manager become involved to allow the employee to clock in or out. More specifically, in these cases, the staff member must get permission from a manager before clocking in or out. Most of the clock in and clock out configuration settings can be enabled or disabled with a few clicks within TimeForge.
In some businesses, managers do not want to be interrupted with employees who are showing up early or late, and rely on a buddy system to allow employees to keep track of each other. To prevent management from becoming frustrated by early and late staff members, TimeForge allows employees to work as a witness for each others early clock in and late clock out times.

Set up grace periods for employee clock in/out.
Make sure to set up the correct grace periods for staff members who clock in early and clock out late.
Note: For these options to appear, the “allow employees to clock in at anytime” option at the top of the above picture must be set to “No.”
Allow employees to witness clock in.
Make sure that the “Allow other employees to witness an employee clock in” option is set to “Yes.”
Other employees can override the early clock in.
When a staff member is too early to work, they will receive a pop-up window similar to the above image.
A manager can allow the staff member to clock in, or another employee can provide their own credentials (username and password, or fingerprint) to allow the employee to clock in.
