Guide to ExakTime Mobile Security Roles

The ExakTime Mobile security role system in ExakTime Connect allows administrators of the system to give other employees access to various parts of the system. This, for example, is useful for allowing Supervisors to clock in for other employees or allow them to create new locations from the field within ExakTime Mobile.
