If you are not new to the Connecteam platform, then we are sure that you know about Admin permissions. These permissions allow you to set exactly what actions an admin can take in regard to a specific feature.

The Time Clock was designed to allow you to easily track the work hours of your team and to make payroll a breeze! With just a few clicks, employees can clock in and out from their mobile device or desktop and easily document relevant information such as the project they worked on, the equipment used, or the mileage spent while on the job/shift. As managers, easily see what’s going on with your employees on a daily basis, communicate with your employees, edit their timesheets and when ready, export the information for payroll.

💡 Tip: If you are new to Connecteam, we recommend you have a look at our article on Admin Permissions to get a better understanding of what admin permissions are, before continuing to the next step.

How to Set Admin Permissions in the Time Clock Feature

To set permissions for an admin in the Time Clock feature, enter the Time Clock Lobby and go to the admin section in the top panel, and click on the category admins. Here you can add a new admin and set their permissions, or adjust the permissions for an existing admin. Take a look at how this looks below.

💡 Tip: Existing admins in the system will have full permissions by default. Only admins with “Manage admins” permissions (found in the Users tab) are able to edit permissions.

Types of Permissions

You can define several types of permissions for adding and editing time clocks.

What do my admins see if they try to perform an action that they do not have permissions for?

If an admin tries to perform an action that they do not have permission for they will be notified that permission is required. Take a look at how this looks below.
