If you are a company whose employees work multiple jobs in a day, then the switch jobs are for you! Perhaps you are a company whose jobs are clients and your employees travel from client to client. Rather than having users clock in and out multiple times a day simply have them switch jobs, and they can smoothly move from one job to the next in less steps.

This article will go over

How Do the Timesheets Look When a Job is Switched?

When the job is switched the timesheets look as they normally do when users clock in and out. Each job is displayed as a line in the users timesheet. Take a look at how this looks below.
