⬇️ Below we describe several options that can easily be connected to your time registration!


Should some of the features below be connected to your time registration?

Payroll hours and breaks

Working hours can be transferred to the payroll system.

πŸ’ Hours that have been paid out are locked and therefore cannot be changed by the employee and approver.

Own paid breaks are deducted from the registered working hours.

πŸ’ Breaks can be targeted at different employee groups.


Push notification: Reminder

If an employee forgets to register hours, a friendly reminder is sent the following day.

πŸ’ A notification is only sent if the previous day is a working day and is not booked with any absence.

ℹ️ This reminder requires official work hours created. Because a day without official work hours created is a day off and no reminder is sent.

Guides to official work hours:

Live feed: Remember to check out today

When the employee has checked in, a counter is automatically created on the front of the mobile screen that counts the number of hours checked in and with a direct link to check out.

ℹ️ This reminder is only supported by the check in/out time registration method.

SMS message: Approve hours

Follow-up on the approver if hours are not approved.

πŸ’ Hours that are not approved are not included in the payroll export.

ℹ️ SMS text message. Option to add your personal company message in free text. On a selected date and time.

EU notifications

Push notification: the EU's 48-hour rule

πŸ’ Automatic message follow-up to the approver and employee if the average hours registered per week exceeds a selected number of hours in a 4-month period.

Push notification: EU rest time rule

πŸ’ If the rest period of at least 11 hours is not observed, a notification can be send.
