What are geofences?
The Geofences feature gives you the ability to make sure your employees are only punching in and out while at the correct job site. You can create a radius around a location that your employees must punch in and out from. If they are not within the location, they will not be allowed to punch time
What can I do with geofences?
Your employees can be assigned multiple geofences, and you can also use our IP Lock feature with geofences, so as long as they’re within one or the other, they’ll be allowed to punch in. For more on the feature please see our help article.
Outside of Geofence Notification
If any of your employees try to punch in or out outside of the radius of a geofence, they will be presented with a notification informing them that they are not within their assigned geofence. They will also be shown with a map of their current location.
Multiple Radius Options
Customization is important as we know there is not a one size fits all solution for each business. With our geofences feature, you are able to select from multiple different radius sizes including 150 feet, 500 feet, 1,000 feet, 2,000 feet, and 5,000 feet.
The smaller radius options are great for small office settings whereas the larger radius options are great for employees that are out in the field and may not punch in or out at an exact location. Plenty of options to meet the needs of your business.
Auto-Assign Locations and Departments
Want to make the punching process even easier for your employees? Then take advantage of our auto-assign feature. With the auto-assign feature you can associate a geofence with a location, department or both. When an employee goes to punch in, they will no longer need to select a location or department code from a list as they will be automatically assigned. The amount of time spent at each location or department will be shown on the employees time card.
