Staffhub - Clock in / Out is now available

Staffhub - Clock in / Out

StaffHub have finally released the clock in/out feature together with a bunch of other features. The clocking feature is personally one I have been waiting for. Because it for some organizations is a way easier way to report time.
Project Online time sheets or similar SAP time sheets work very well for departments where the workforce works on many different projects at a time. Ex. IT, R&D, etc.
However, for organizations where the workforce mainly work on one project/job at a time and people are paid by the hour StaffHub is in my opinion a better choice.

The clocking function is very simple, fist create a schedule like the following.

If not already enabled, go to settings and enable Clocking.
Note: You can also limit your employees to only allow them to start their clock when they are at the workplace. Simply type in the address where of the workplace.

Next have your employees go to their smart device (iPhone, Android or tablet) and start the Staffhub app.

They will now be able to see the shifts that you assigned to them. 
The clocking feature is simply enabled from the "Timewatch" button ("Tidsur", sorry my image is in Danish).

From this page the employee simply click and hold to start his or hers shift.
When the shift is over, the employee simply stops the time from the same page.

The employee also have an overview of how much time was spend on a single shift.
The manager can then get a nice overview of all shifts and time spend by exporting the time to Excel.
In the future I would expect the time spend to also be visible within Staffhub. But haven't found that function yet.
