Rounding Clock In and Clock Out Times

TimeForge includes a powerful and flexible time and attendance management system, and is able to track (and round) clock in and clock out times on an accurate minute-by-minute clock, which is synchronized with the National Institute of Standards and Technology.  TimeForge can use the clock in and clock out times to calculate the payroll for your pay period without any problems. Accurate time tracking is part of what TimeForge does!

However, some businesses (especially in the restaurant, hotel, and hospitality industries) prefer to round clock in and clock out times for easier calculations. To make payroll calculations easier, TimeForge can round each clock in or clock out time to the nearest 5, 10, 15, 30, or 60 minute period. It is always a good idea to check with your department of labor to find out how you are allowed to round clock in and clock out times.

Navigate to the “Attendance Options” page.

However, TimeForge will not round any clock in or clock out times provided by your Point of Sales (PoS) system. If you want to round time and attendance in your Point of Sale system, please do so within the PoS software.

Note: TimeForge will not round clock in or clock out times for previous pay periods. Changing the rounding rules will only affect upcoming attendance entries.
