Product Update: Time Clock Distance Calculations and Bulk Editing for Staff Details


We’re kicking 2018 off the same way we ended 2017 – bringing you great new staff management and scheduling features to speed up your processes and make your lives easier.

Let’s get right to it!

Time Clock Distance Calculations in Timesheets

When it comes to confirming time clock locations for your employees, especially those working remotely, accuracy is everything.

With that in mind, we’ve added a new functionality to our Time Clock module that gives managers more detailed timesheets and the ability to see exactly from where staff members are clocking into and out of shifts.

Managers can now easily track the distance between an employee’s captured GPS location and the actual, assigned work location.

Note: In order for this feature to work, managers need to make sure that they have entered proper addresses for all locations, both physical and remote.

When set up correctly, managers will see additional data in their employee timesheets which lets them know if their employees are clocking in and out of shifts from the proper locations. If they are not, managers will be able to see how far away from the assigned location the clock action was performed.

To get a better idea of how this new functionality works, check out this quick video:

Bulk Employee Detail Management

We have added a new functionality that allows business owners to manage and edit employee details in bulk, meaning that managers are now able to easily make changes to the account settings of multiple employees at a time.

If you want to change account settings for your employees – such as permissions, assigning additional positions or skills to employees or assigning certain leave types to your staff – you no longer have to visit each individual employee’s profile to make these changes one employee at a time.

Thanks to the new bulk editing option, you can select as many employees as you want and make changes to their account settings all at once.

We’ve put together a short video to show you how it works:

Happy Scheduling!
