Clocking in and out
How to clock into your shift and how to clock out.
If your company uses our clock in feature, you will be required to clock in and out for your shift or and unscheduled shift. To do this, simply tap Clock in on your Dashboard. The time at which you checked-in will appear. To clock out at the end of your shift, simply press clock out.

The amount of information displayed for each shift has been minimised to allow for a better viewing experience:
More space has been allocated to the key schedule information (start/end time, location, tasks)
Less important info has been hidden from the main view and is only available when you view the details of a shift - this includes break details, task details and the duration summary
The way you can check for any updates to your rota while on the Schedule screen has changed too. We've transitioned away from a distinct Refresh button in app header to instead having a pull-to-refresh mechanism which gets activated when you pull above the first date that is loaded.
We've made it easier to filter your Schedule view if you have access to multiple locations. The filter has been added directly to the home-screen instead of being hidden behind a separate page.
We also updated the Leave screen to make it more intuitive:
Ensure the default leave period when opening the Leave screen is always the current leave year
Start to display which leave year a user is working within at the top of the screen at all points
Provided that your company has opted-in for this feature, you can view a list of the current and past timesheets, organised by week (from most to least recent). This view helps you review and quickly identify discrepancies related to a shift between the number of hours you were contracted to work and what will appear in your paycheck.
The summarized information shows you the status of the timesheet, your contracted hours, your scheduled hours, your actual worked hours, and any leave hours taken.
It also indicates if there is a difference between the contracted hours vs. how many hours you will be paid for, and by how much.
When pressing on a timesheet, you can see your scheduled start, end, and break durations, along with what those values are on the timesheet.
If you press on any entry, you will see your scheduled times, clock-in/out times if your company uses it, and the timesheet times.
