Attendance is an actual work hours logged for an employee. All employees can clock-in and clock-out when they are at work.
An attendance of an employee belongs to one location. Every location can be tied to a WiFi IP address or GPS coordinates so that employees clock-in and out only when their smartphones are connected to the wifi or within certain distance from the location.
You can also sort or filter attendances by an employee and a location to view records and get total worked hours of a specific employee at a specific location.
Shift is a planned work schedule while attendance is an actual record. An attendance is matched with a shift. This allows Shiftee to identify which shift does not have any attendance record so that late notification can be sent. An employee can clock-in for a shift from 2 hours before the shift start-time.
When an employee tries to clock-in while there is no shift available, Shiftee lets him/her clock-in on call. An on-call attendance does not link to any shift.
Sometimes employees may forget to clock-out even though Shiftee would remind. In this case, you will have an empty clock-out time in the attendance. This missing clock-out times will be displayed with an exclamation icon so you can distinguish them at a glance.
