If you allow staff to clock in/out on their own with their work shifts (setting can be found here https://app.eventstaffapp.com/settings/time_tracking), staff will get access to the following.
Staff will receive a reminder text message and email X hours before their work shift. Where X hour value is indicated with our time tracking settings.
With the reminder work shift message, and the usual work shift page (that staff open on their phone or through our mobile apps), they will see a clock in button upon first viewing the work shift. If they tap the clock in button it will prompt them to allow access to their phone so that we can record their GPS coordinates. As with all mobile device apps/websites, staff ultimately control GPS/location access, so if they don’t give Event Staff App access then we won’t be able to capture their location when they clock in/out.
Before a work shift ends, staff will get another reminder asking them to clock out when done. They will get a link in the text message and email that will take them to the work shift, and they will now see a clock out button that they can tap (similar to the clock in button that they previously used).
With clock in/out recorded, as an admin user you will then be able to visit the staffing page for an event to view the details for their work shift to view full information on time tracking. Read more on what admin users see with time tracking functionality.
If staff forget to clock in/out, say if they missed the window, then staff are allowed to manually enter in the times for when they started work and when they ended work.
