MakeShift Live acts not only as an app to manage employees but also as a time clock to allow employees to clock in and out for their shifts. This is very useful for employees who may not have smartphones to clock in and out from or for those who simply forget their phone at home today. Some businesses choose to set up a standalone time clock on a wall or table mount so employees can access the time clock from here. We suggest using something like a tablet as a standalone time clock and securing it to the wall or a table top with a locking mounting device.
Read the following article to learn how to enter time clock mode.
Starting from the main Schedule screen, click on the Schedule tab at the top to view your options pane.
Click on the Settings tab.
Click Enter Time Clock Mode.
You are now in time clock mode. Employees can clock in and out for their shifts by entering their employee ID number here. Employees will not have any scheduling or approval access in this mode.
