The Humanity Time clock module gives managers the ability to see exactly from where staff members are clocking into and out of shifts by measuring and reporting GPS distances in relation to their assigned locations.

Things to know before you begin:

  1. You must have a manager/admin, supervisor or scheduler access privileges in Humanity to view the GPS distances.
  2. Time clock module must be enabled to utilize the Geo-fencing feature.
  3. GPS settings must be enabled from account settings under Time Clock module
  4. The location must be added correctly under the additional location or the remote sites.
  5. Primary locations are not supported by this feature but if you want it to work, add your primary location into additional location.
