How to Enter Time Clock Mode

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 an iPad or iPod as a standalone time clock and securing it to the wall or a table top with a locking mounting device.
