The Time Clock was designed to allow you to easily track the work hours of your team and to make payroll a breeze! Inside the time clock, the today tab is where you can oversee your daily operations. You can see who’s clocked in and to what job, communicate with your employees, or see where they are on the map view.

In this article we will go over:

Now, Let’s take a look at all you can do in the today tab below.

Where Can I Find My Today Tab?

To find your Today Tab, navigate to the Time Clock on the left sidebar. When entering the time clock you will automatically be brought to the today tab. Take a look at how this looks below

What Can I See in the Today Tab?

The today tab allows you to see a variety of things. Let’s go over these below.

  • Who worked or is clocked in The today tab automatically shows you who worked that tab. You can see if a user is clocked in, has finished their shift, and clocked out. You will even be able to see employees who worked an overnight shift.

In the example below you can see that Bryan is currently clocked in and Rebecca worked from 10 am to 5 pm and Wendy worked an overnight shift. In the today tab overnight shifts are marked by a link symbol and automatically start at 12:00 am and end when the user clocked out. When hovering over

  • What job they are clocked in to - each person who clocked in needed to clock in to a certain job. In the Today Tab, the job will be displayed next to the user's name. In the example below we can see that Rebecca clocked into the job of Manager and Carl to Cook. Each user has a job next to their name.

  • Where they clocked in and out - if you want to see where the user's clock in/out location without using the Map view, you can easily do this by hovering over their clock in or out time. In the example below I hover over Mary's clock in time and I can see exactly where she clocked in and out.

  • The Map View - By scrolling down in the today tab we come to the map view. If you have enabled the Geolocation to capture your employee clock in/our location, or the Breadcrumbs capability to capture your employee's location on the go, then the map view gives you an overview of where your users clocked in/out or went while clocked in.

Pro tip: The map view can be filtered to view the clock in or our location only, all-day activity, or to view location only for the specific jobs you set when you created your jobs. Take a look at the different filters below.
