New Feature: Photo Clock-in

Have you ever needed confirmation that the person that is clocking in with the app is really the real employee and not someone else?

Here is the solution for you, a new feature called "Photo Clock-in".

This has to be enabled from the app, just go to the Menu and select Settings, from there, open the Menu again and select the option called "ClockIn".

The next step is to enable the Photo Clock in feature and tap on "Save".

So the next time the employees attempt to clock in, the Camera will be launched, prompting them to take a picture to be able to access the tasks. If you are happy with the picture, tap on OK.

Then, tap on Submit to continue. After this you will see the list of tasks.

Select the one that applies to you and also the subtask if available, and you will be successfully clocked in!

That's all for now! We hope you like this new feature as much as we do!

New Feature: Weekly Timesheet Signoff

Hi everyone!

Here is the Econz Team bringing you more interesting news about a new feature we know you will love.

This time we have the "Weekly Timesheet Signoff", which you can use to have team members signoff their own weekly timesheets directly from their supervisor's device.

This needs to be enabled by an Administrator from the web portal. Go to the "Administration" tab, and select "Preferences". Look for the following option and make sure to click the checkbox.

Hit on "Save" and the rest happens with the mobile application.

The idea is that the person in charge of doing the punches will be able to access something called "Multi User Mode". Typically the weekly timesheet signoff is done a week after the punches were entered, so open the Menu and select this option:

Next, the team member will be able to enter his/her login credentials and password and tap on Login. The app will attempt to connect with the server.

Next, the employee will see a summary of the worked hours corresponding to the previous week, if everything is correct, this person can use the below field to place their signature. If they need to correct it, just tap on "Clear", and if they are good to go, select "Save".

You will get a confirmation asking if you wish to send the signature. Select "YES" and then the app will submit the signature.

Finally, open the Menu and select "Logout" to finish the session and allow someone else to do the timesheet signoff. You will get a confirmation screen, if you are ready, then select "YES".

That is pretty much it! Simple and effective... Let us know if you need any assistance and we'll be more than glad to go over the steps with you.

Until next time!
