Mobile App - TimeWorksPlus Employee
Prior to employees clocking in through the mobile app, you will need to configure permissions.
1) Go to Employee Setup, then select the checkboxes next to the names of all employees requiring Mobile app access.
2) Next, select Employee Setup Options in the top header bar and select Work with Selected Employees
3) Finally, ensure that Mobile options have been set to Yes by checking all Mobile options and selecting "Yes" from the corresponding drop down boxes. Then click Save.
Login Usernames and Passwords
Once you've granted access to the Mobile app, you should also make sure to review username formats and assign a default password (if not already assigned.) Click Edit to assign a new password.
You're all set! You can now instruct employees to download the Mobile app and login as shown below.
Get the Mobile App (iPhone and Android compatible)
Employees can get TimeWorksPlus Employee from either the App Store or Google Play. When they search for it, they may also find our old app, called TimeWorksPlus.
TimeWorksPlus Employee has an improved experience in terms of interface and functionality.
This is the app employees should use. However, managers and supervisors should continue using TimeWorksPlus Mobile for management tasks.
The latest version of the mobile app is listed as "TimeWorksPlus Employee"
Once employees download the app, they can use their timekeeping credentials to log in. This information is e-mailed upon hire or creation in the time clock system.
TimeWorksPlus Employee provides much of the same functionality your employees get in the Employee Portal (formerly called ESS).
At minimum, the employee will have the rights to:
- View their time card.
- View their personal information and edit phone and email.
- View company messages, either through the Employee Bulletins feature in TimeWorksPlus
They may also have access to the following features, depending on the account.
The mobile app includes a compact view of the time card.
Employees can clock in and out via the mobile app. For any employee with the feature enabled, the clock appears in the TIME CLOCK tab on their mobile dashboard.
If they do not have mobile punch enabled, they will just see MY DASHBOARD, which contains company messages, hours worked in the pay period, and other items.
Request Time Off
Employees can submit a request for time off through the mobile app. This triggers an email to their supervisor, who can approve, deny or modify their request in the desktop application.
And if you're using our accruals feature to track paid leave, employees will also see their available balance when requesting time off. This may not be available for all customers due to the nature of PTO configuration.
Approve Time Card
The Time Card Approval feature provides a method for employees to indicate that the hours on their time card are accurate.
On the mobile app time card, this can be done day-by-day or in bulk for an entire pay period.
The mobile app Schedule tab displays upcoming shifts while also showing time off—both approved requests and those pending approval.
Additionally, employees of those sites integrated with TimeSimplicity will be able to view additional shift details (i.e. Workgroup, Position, additional Schedule Levels) by tapping the shift.
The schedule detail page also has an option for the employee to drop the shift. When that happens, eligible employees can be notified, through the app, that an open shift is available and pick it up on the Open Shifts tab.
