Tell the app when you start and end breaks, then finally clock out when you're finished
But what is needed is more safety and individuality. This need is answered by using biometric technology in employee punch clocks. This cutting-edge technology identifies employees through their specific physical characters such as fingerprints, hand geometries, facial scans, retinal scans, etc. The devices that use fingerprints for identifying employees are the most common. Employees are meant to place their thumbs on a particular reader device and it will record the imprint in the form of binary information. This is a onetime enrolling procedure. Later, whenever the employee clocks in, the reader will tally the imprint with the information already present and on that basis grant or deny access.
Dominion’s Time & Attendance software gives you an overview of how to track and calculate employee time. This is where you put together your rounding rules, exceptions, overtime rules, etc. As the administrator, you can edit punches and create System Notes, so you can set reminders such as “forgot to punch out” or “left early for a family emergency” or whatever the case may be. Exceptions are a way to flag the approver when the employee clocks in or out outside the allotted time frame, or forgets to clock in all together. From there you can decide to approve the time or adjust it, and if this is a continual problem you can speak to the employee and sort out the root of the issue.
