Allowing Employees to Witness a Clock In

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.
