Geofence automatic clock in/out

Hi

Having set up a geofence for a location, I receive a push notification to clock in/out when I arrive/leave the geofence location.

Can this be set up to automatically clock in/out without having to reply to the push notification?

Thanks

Matt

Thanks for reaching out to the Community, @MattHobie.

 

If geofencing is installed on your company’s TSheets account, you'll be reminded to clock in as soon as you cross the geofence around the job site. The app will also record the time you entered the geofence, so you have an accurate start time as opposed to an estimated start time.

 

Geofencing will not automatically clock in your team members, it's designed as a reminder that you've reached a job site.

 

You can read some very helpful FAQs by checking out this article: GPS tracking and geofencing FAQs for employees.

 

I'm happy to share this feedback with our development team for future changes within the product, and you can always keep an eye on our blog for the newest updates within our Intuit products.

Hello there, Matt.

 

 

I'd suggest reaching out to the third-party support team so they can help you in setting your notification in clocking in and out. In TSheets, you can set schedule reminders and notifications. 

 

On your computer, you can follow these steps: 

 

  1. Go to QuickBooks Time and then Company Settings.
  2. Select Notification.
  3. Click your preference and click Save

I'm just around the corner if you have other questions. Take care and have a great day!

Hi Catherine and thank you for your reply.

 

I had already established the geofence and push notifications as you suggested in Company Settings, Notifications.

 

However, I am looking to see if the geofence can automatically clock in/out rather than the user having to manually clock in/out.

 

Thanks

Matt

Will it automatically clock you out once you leave the geo-fence?

Hello and welcome @accountinggoldsealsf.

 

Geofencing will not automatically clock your team members in or out.  It will send a reminder to do either, and it will record the team member's location when they cross the geofence. It won’t actually clock them out It's designed as a reminder that you’re entering or leaving the job site.
