- Clocking in via time clock
- Clocking in via web
- Clocking in via smartphone app
- Clocking in via touch-tone phone
- Editing time cards
- Clocking in for breaks and lunches
- Viewing benefit hours, entering time off requests, adding expenses, and adding tips
Clocking In Via Time Clock
Employees can clock in using a uAttend time clock. Depending on the time clock they are using, they can clock in with an RFID card, a PIN, or their fingerprints.
For information on setting up time clocks, see Time Clocks.
For information on PINs, see Setting Up Users for PIN Code Clocking.
For information on Face Scanning, see Setting Up Users for Facial Recognition Clocking.
For information on registering fingerprints, see Setting Up Users for Fingerprint Clocking.
Clocking In Via Web
Employees can clock in using the URL that you set up when you created your uAttend account. When an employee logs in to uAttend, the Clock screen appears. They click the In button to clock in. If they are already clocked in, then the Out button will appear.

Editing Employee Time Card
