Clocking in is as easy as tapping "Go" from the pocket clock screen of ExakTime Mobile on your Android device. Watch this video for a quick walkthrough:



AndroidClockFor


If a User has been given the necessary permissions, they can Clock In/Out other Users. This is done by selecting an Employee, Location and Cost Code on the screen above. When done making your selections, tap Go.

Note: Only Administrators and Employees with the ‘Edit Time’ permission will be able to change the time as shown above. For anyone else, it will just show the date and time without giving the ability to edit them.

If allowed, the User can also Clock In/Out for a Crew of Employees to speed up the process.
