  8. X Employees Clock In - Employees That Used The Device To Clock In. This option will only appear for employees that have been given permission to see employees that have clocked in and is intended for shared devices. If employees clock in on their own device, they will not appear in this listing.

Current Position

Pressing on the GPS icon from the Clock In screen will show you the current position of the employee based on the location data from the mobile device if possible and a small map of where the device believes it to be. You can interact with the map to zoom in and look around an area.

The employee would select the employee or crew that is working, what location should be used, and the cost code.
