Overtime Alerts

Get notified of how much time employees are clocking up.

To help control payroll you need to be up to date on how much time your employees are entering. We have you covered with our overtime alerts. Overtime alerts can be setup to go to the employee, their manager, and the account administrator all at the same time. Our alerts will tell you if the employee is punched in or out, as well as their total hours worked.

Daily Alerts

Setup an alert based on time worked each day.

Weekly Alerts

Weekly alerts can be setup in addition to daily alerts.

What is in the Overtime Alert email?

When the Overtime Alert email is sent out, it contains important information about the employee. It lets you know how many hours have been worked and whether the employee is currently punched in or out. The name of the Overtime Alert is included in the subject of the email making this feature great to use in other situations such as reminding an employee of a lunch break or to punch out at the end of the day. Use the feature however you best see fit!
