Note that allowing employees to clock in for unscheduled shifts will also allow them to work around any early clock-in restrictions you set up using these steps.

If you only want employees clocking in at the exact time their shift is scheduled to start, set 0 in the early clock in field under your Time clock settings.

They'll get an error message if they attempt to clock in before their shift time.


If you’d like employees to be able to clock in for their shifts in advance, specify the grace period in minutes.

They will be allowed to clock in once they meet that threshold.
