Updated Feature: Enhancements to Clock-in Lock

Hello everyone!

We had covered the Clock-in Lock feature in full detail on a previous post. For those of you who might not remember or are not familiar with this, Clock-in Lock enables companies to set a fence around a specific area and if employees attempt to punch in to a task outside of if, the application will notify them of this and will not allow them to enter that task.

We have recently added a new enhancement that allows this lock to be optionally bypassed (i.e. it becomes a warning to the field worker, rather than a hard lock out), which can be useful in case you needed to setup an email alert for when it happens, but still allow employees to select the task even outside of the specified area.

For more information, make sure to follow the link on top (here it is again, just in case), which includes the new step with the "Lock Phone" checkbox.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to leave us a comment!

Desk Time Report

Hi everyone,

We are back with some exciting new features!

We have created a new report that will show you how much "Desk Time" a user has had. By this, we mean the time with the phone showing zero acceleration from the accelerometer, or pretty much no movement detected, just like when the phone is left on top of a desk.

You are able to setup how much time should be considered as Desk Time, for this, go to the Administration tab and select the option "Tolerance for Desk Time report":

Once inside this screen, you can set the amount of seconds, just like on this example where we set 900 seconds, which equals to 15 minutes:

What this will do is that as soon as the device hasn't detected any movement after the 900 seconds, desk time will start being accumulated until the app detects movement.

To view the data generated by this feature, go to the Reports tab and select the "Desk Time Report":

Here is a sample of the report:

It will show you the start and stop times and a total for each "Desk Time" period, according to the limit of seconds you setup in the previous step.

Let us know in the comments if you have any questions!
