How can I add employees to time clock?

Sometimes managers may need to make last minute changes to the roster, even calling employees on the phone to quickly find someone extra to work. Rather than needing to edit the roster and republish, in this situation, managers can simply add additional employees directly via RosterElf's Time Clock app. NOTE: Only employees with manager permission level can add employees via Time Clock.
