Allow Supervisors to Enter Time Card Comments When Using Clock For

ExakTime Mobile Comments allows your supervisors to add comments when clocking in/out for another employee via 'Clock For'.

This will allow your supervisors to provide relevant information that is directly connected with a time punch so they provide context with their employees' time punches (e.g. any issues when they started or ended their day).

Enabling ExakTime Mobile Comments

  • Go to Manage and click on Mobile Settings.


  • Enable Mobile Settings if not already enabled. 


  • Enable the option for supervisors to enter comments when using 'Clock For' and specify if it should be present when clocking in, clocking out, or both. This option is set to 'When clocking in or out' by default.


  • Click Save at the bottom.
  • Your supervisors will need to sync their copies of ExakTime Mobile to receive this new option. 

What Supervisors Do

When clocking in or out via 'Clock For', the supervisor will see a prompt to enter a comment to associate with the time record. They will have 5 minutes to enter their comment before the clock in/out process is canceled and they need to use 'Clock For' again.  Comments are limited to 4,000 characters. 


 Avoid Emojis

When entering a comment, avoid emojis. Emojis can cause unexpected results/errors such as not displaying properly or AccountLinx not being able to export time data. 

What Administrators See

The comments that supervisors enter will be seen on the respective employees' time cards underneath the associated time record and on the Employee Touch Detail report if comments are enabled. If the supervisor adds a comment when clocking in and clocking out, both comments will be combined underneath the time record.
