  1. Vacation Requests and Alerts

    It would be great if an approve or deny feature for time off requests could be implemented. And then if there was a push notification for upcoming time off requests so that the scheduler is reminded of who needs time off when, in advance, without having to scroll through the calendar. This feature exists in other time sheet apps and is very appealing, such as SwipeClock and Namely. Right now, we are relying on multiple methods of tracking this time off along side Clock Shark and requests get overlooked this way.

      Thanks for the input, everyone, on how you would like to see Vacation tracking integrated with ClockShark. It looks like this idea is very specific, and has many parts, so please keep voting and adding as much detail as possible, so we know exactly what to add for you.

      As we respond to the suggestions with the most votes, we’ll keep you updated in the “comments” section. Thanks for taking the time to share the features you’d like to see added to ClockShark. :)

    • Require Notes entry at clockout.

      Would really, really , really love to have a feature that I could enable in employee settings that would allow me to make adding notes into a time card mandatory on a per employee basis. Then I could hopefully stop reminding and reminding and clock shark would remind / require it prior to clocking out.

        Hi, David! Thanks for posting your idea to the Voting Forum. Let’s let folks share their support for it, and then we can consider it for a future update. Please let me know if you have any other suggestions!

      • Stop map rotation when GPSTrack animation plays

        We play the GPSTrak trail animation to see where our employees were each day so we can verify that they were where they were supposed to be. As it plays, the map randomly rotates. At first, I thought it rotated in the direction of travel, but I realized that sometimes it doesn't rotate when the direction changes and sometimes the rotation has nothing to do with the direction of travel. It is super annoying and hard to look at. We have to pause the location and try to figure out where they were. It is an important feature to us…

          Hi There! Thanks for sharing your suggestion for changing the GPSTrak map rotation. Since that’s a new feature, we’re eager to hear about how it’s working for our customers so we can continually improve. Let’s let folks vote with you on this idea, and we’ll look into this for a future feature update! :)

        • Direct Employee Messaging

          There should be a way for an Admin to directly message the phone of all (or certain) employees through ClockShark.

            Hi Chris!

            Depending on what information needs to be communicated to employees (schedule changes, upcoming job start time), there may already be a notification available in ClockShark. Feel free to check out http://help.clockshark.com/knowledgebase/articles/1133746-using-notifications to see how those notifications suit your needs. :)

            Regarding the ability to craft particular messages and send them directly through the app, this is a request that we are hearing more-and-more. I’m sharing this with our development team, and we’ll continue to monitor the votes here for this idea, so we can know when we should add that for you.

            If you have any other ideas or suggestions, you can let me know at cliff@clockshark.com. I love to hear how we can improve ClockShark for you.

          • Automatic Lunch for Select Employees Only

            The ability to turn off the automatic lunch for only select people. Or, make it so it automatically adds the time when they clock out. Right now it looks like it happens at mid night? This has caused us a lot of problems.

            • request that start & end times are viewable without clicking on the details.

              Would like the start & end times to be viewable on the schedule without clicking on the details. Currently only the start time is viewable. Being able to see both would be very helpful.

              • addresses schedule

                Would like the addresses to show on the schedule. Currently we can only see this information in the job or if we add it to the schedule notes. A separate address box on the schedule would be very helpful.

                • Schedule Tool

                  Within the schedule tool, It would be awesome if we could add jobs to the schedule and later apply an empolyee to the project. Currently the job requires an immediate employee to be assigned. Adding such a feature would allow a company to schedule the jobs and manage things easier for how my company runs. Just a thought I wanted to share.

                  • Need to be able to see what job overtime is allocated to not just total overtime.

                    We are having an issue because our employees could be on multiple jobs on one day or pay period and we have to differentiate what jobs the overtime is allocated to and as far as we can tell that it just gives us the total time and does not give us the information on which job the overtime was charge to.

                    • Attach notes to a job

                      Currently, notes attach to a job through an employee clocked into that job. It would be great if the notes could be accessed by the job and not through the employee that made them originally. We do not give all employees full access but there are times an employee needs to know what has been done on a job.

                      • Client Info (Phone, Email, Notes about client) should have dedicated spot under details.

                        There should be a way when adding a Job to add the Clients contact info (name, phone, notes such as gate access/personal note about client) and this info should show up at the top of the Details page. As of now you have to manually type in any contact info into the job notes (which should be reserved for notes about the job). This would not only look better from a UI perspective but would save the employee's time by having it under the Job name/# (above the address line).

                        • Job description and attachments online for non Admin employees.

                          Need ability for non Admin employees to see job description and attachments while working with web version. So far only admin can see as well as add and modify all job notes. Will be great to have employees able to open Job attachments on PC so they have full view of large documents.

                          • View Full Schedule on Mobile App (Read carefully)

                            I have seen this suggestion 2 times but the I think there is a communication break down on what is being requested vs what is a current feature.

                            We are looking to have a Single view from the App where we can see All Employees, at the same time, on one screen, for the day.

                            We understand that you can go employee by employee but that is not what is being requested. I know for our use case this individual viewing does not do much as we we work in teams of at least 2-4 people.

                            Having a way to…

                                        I would like a option for schedule days off , holidays etc. also would like to have the scheduler go at least a month out I know you can go a month but I think it should be like the one week two week option.

                                          Hi Joe,

                                          A great way that our customers note holidays and off days in ClockShark is by naming both a Job & Task as “OFF” or “Holiday”, and then placing it in employee timesheets and schedules. Do you think that helps out with keeping track of those days?

                                          With respect to the schedule view, you are correct. The month view of the scheduler does look a little different, just to display all days in the month in one screen. I’ll definitely pass along your suggestion for making that like the single/double week view.

                                          We’ll also monitor the votes here to see what other ClockShark users think of the idea too! I’d love to hear any other suggestions you may have.

                                        • inactive employees archive

                                          All inactive employees should go into a folder so i don't have to scroll thru 5 plus pages of employees.
