If your company is currently using MakeShift to keep track of time and attendance, you may have the ability to clock in and out directly from your phone. This depends on whether the management at your company has decided to use this feature. If this feature is enabled, follow the directions below to clock in or out for a shift.
Click the Time Clock button at the bottom of the screen. This button will not be accessible if your company has not enabled this feature.
On the Time Clock screen, you will see your next upcoming shift at the top. The details will include the time of your shift, the department and position. If you do not have an upcoming shift within the next 12 hours, this area will be empty and you will be clocking in for a shift that hasn't been scheduled. This may happen if you have been called in to work for a shift that wasn't already scheduled.
On the map, you will see a blue pin which shows the location of your workplace and a blue dot surrounded by a shaded circle which represents your own location. Your company has set a geofence so that you are only able to clock in or out when you are within this zone. If you are outside of this geofence area, you will not be able to clock in or out for your shift.
Click the Clock In button when you have arrived at work and are ready to clock in for your shift.
The time that you have clocked in at will be recorded. You are now signed in for this shift.
Click the Time Clock button at the bottom of the screen to return to the time clock.
Click the Clock Out button. Keep in mind that you are not able to clock out if you are not within the specified geofence location. It may be helpful to set a reminder in your phone so that you remember to clock out before you leave your workplace.
The time that you have clocked out at will be recorded. You are now signed out for this shift.
**Note: If your employer requires employee photo punches, you may be asked to take a photo of yourself in addition to your clock in or clock out.
