3. Log in to Time Clock app


You will need a RosterElf account and a permission level of "Account Owner", "General Manager", or "Manager" to log into RosterElf's Time Clock app. Log in with your email and RosterElf password on this screen.

4. View today's shifts


Once you have successfully logged into RosterElf's Time Clock app, you will see a complete list of shifts rostered for the current day. You will notice a range of status banners, including Clocked-In, Clocked-Out, Break, Late and Sick. This provides a simple way to view, at a glance, the status of all the planned shifts. NOTE: This view will be empty if you have not published a roster for the current day.

5. Staff clock in with password


To clock in or out for shifts, your employees need to find and click on their name on the shift view. Employees will then be prompted to enter their password to continue.

6. Staff enter comments


If the employee is either clocking in early or late, the Time Clock app will prompt them to leave a reason as to why. These comments are then recorded for management to assist when reviewing payroll. 

7. Photo proof                          

Lastly, employees will be asked to take a selfie, which managers can review during the payroll process as proof that the employee was on-premises for their shift.

8.  Confirmation


The process of clocking in for shift is now done.

Employees will be notified of success by the screen below.
