Clock In & Out

Employees clock in and out on the register to record their shift start and end times. Clock punches sync automatically to BackOffice with an active internet connection.

  1. Enter a four digit register code.
  2. Tap 'Clock In' or 'Clock Out' to record a time punch.
  3. A pop-up appears to confirm the employee and date/time of the clock punch.

Manage Time Clock Records

View and edit time clock records from BackOffice using a web browser.

View Clock Punches

Look at individual clock punches, total hours worked, and more. The Time Clock presents total hours in decimal increments rather than raw minutes.

  1. In BackOffice, tap 'Staff'. Then, 'Time Clock'.
  2. Tap to choose a date/time range and click 'Retrieve'.

    By default, BackOffice displays the past 30 days of time punches.

  3. (optional) Check 'Include deleted employees' to show time punches for staff members that were removed from your Staff List.
  4. (optional) Click 'Download CSV' to export the time clock records to a spreadsheet.
