  1. Add the ability to insert a note on a specific day, without having to add time. Such as when an employee takes a vacation day or is sick.

    For example,
    John Smith, did not work. On vacation today.
    or John Smith, did not work. Took personal day.
    Something to have a reference for that particular day.

      Thanks for sharing your support for this idea here! As support continues to mount for this idea, our development team will plan how to bring this to you in ClockShark. :)

      Reading this idea, and all the comments below, I can see that the consensus is that administrators would like a way to designate an Off/Holiday/PTO day, without having to insert any time for an employee. Currently, in ClockShark there is an available workaround that’s equivalent to the feature being requested.

      If you’d like to see how to designate that an employee will be taking (or took) a day off, Morgan from our Customer Success team explains how to do that here: https://soapbox.wistia.com/videos/SkNhqgi9Kc

      Feel free to let me know if this video is helpful, or if you have any other suggestions/ideas regarding how we can improve ClockShark for you. I love hearing your ideas.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Allow for Mileage to be added to a specific job.

          We allow our employees to use their own vehicles and reimburse them for that mileage. I wish there was a way we could track that on this app.

            Mileage tracking is something that we do hear a fair number of you requesting, so it’s something we’ll consider adding to ClockShark on a future update. Current feature addition projects are taking priority, so if you like this idea then please vote in with your support.

          • Payrates for reports

            It would be nice if there was a way to put in the employees pay rate so when you run a report on a job you can see not only the hours but also how many hours per employee times their pay rate to have a more accurate accounting of the total job labor cost.

              Thanks for your suggestions! We are receiving this request more frequently, so we’ll consider adding it on a future update.

              Anyone interested in this feature, please vote and share your thoughts so we have a great idea of who would like to see this feature.

            • 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!

              • Add a way for each employee to sign off on their daily time sheet saying its correct

                Only the employee know what they have done that day. I believe that if they had to sign off on their time sheet saying it was correct, alot of things would be corrected by them not office staff.

                  Hi! We’ve recently added a signature line to the TIme Sheets report so if you print that report you will be able to have employees sign the printed time sheet. We realize that having an in-app approval process would be more ideal, so its something we are considering adding on an upcoming release. Thanks for the suggestions!

                • Ability to Change Clock in/out times

                  Ability to change employee clock in/out/lunch times during shift without having to wait until they clock out at the end of the day.

                  • Custom Reports

                    Allow an option for setting up a custom report. I want to be able to spit out my employees time sheets in a certain order like by day with job number, task, total time that day for that task, and then a sum total of the hours worked that day as well as a week total. Right now I have to get an excel file from clock shark and then convert formats and copy and paste it into a excel template I've made. It's very time consuming.

                    • Allow a forced ping to be performed for GPStrak

                      With GPStrak sending a gps ping on occassion is great, but if you were able to press a button or something to make an employee's ping. That way you can see where they are on request rather than waiting.

                        Thanks for sharing this idea. Making a GPS “Blast” feature that could conservatively refresh all the locations of employees is something that our customers have begun asking for. Keep sending in those votes so that we know when exactly to build this for you.

                      • 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.

                            Hi there, this is an idea we are considering for a future update. In the meantime, there is a Spanish language getting started guide available. Email or chat with us, and we’ll send you a copy. We don’t make it readily available because our experience has been that most spanish speakers are able to figure out the app and navigate around in it without too many issues.

                          • Custom Logo on Reports

                              • Add API Integration

                                Adding API integration would allow users to develop 3rd party applications to gather data from this system and put it into a common data base where other important company data exists.

                                The purpose would be to allow users to begin to look at KPIs specific to their business which would include the data form this application.

                                One of the biggest problems that I run into as a small business is figuring out how to integrate all of the different information systems within our organization. API makes that an easy solution to this problem.

                                  Thanks for sharing your idea, Troy. Requests for an open API have started to steamroll, so we’ll be looking into this. This year, one of our goals is to increase the number of integrations available with ClockShark, and this connects nicely with that.

                                  Since all of our feature additions come from customer requests, we’ll be closely monitoring the feedback this idea generates. Please keep voting, folks. If you have any ideas for software integrations, or would like to share what software your company uses, feel free to let me know @ cliff@clockshark.com.

                                • Have job statuses

                                  I suggest having a drop down menu with job statuses such as 'in progress' 'complete' 'to be scheduled' etc. preferably with an admin setup option where we can create the list of statuses.

                                  Ideally the guys in the field (from mobile app) should be able to change statuses (preferably we would be able to limit which statuses they can select from).

                                  Last but not least it would be great to be able to sort jobs on the job page by status

                                    Thanks for sharing your idea, Shaahid! Currently, one can set a job as “Active” or “Inactive” in ClockShark, but your idea would fine-tune that feature, and even allow employees to control the job access. After all, they’re likely the first ones to know when a job is complete.

                                    I can see that this idea is gaining traction. Great! We’re going to keep a close eye on the support for this idea, so that we know when to build that feature for you. Of course, if you have any other suggestions or ideas, please let me know. I love hearing them.

                                  • Hide administrator passwords from other administrators.

                                    I was shocked to learn that when I assigned a second administrator to our company account, I was able to login with that new administrator account and reveal my password. Revealing other administrator passwords shouldn’t be an option or should be an option that can be opted out of.

                                      Thanks for sharing this idea, Jeremy. Yep, you’re right: administrators do have the option to view employee passwords, including other administrators. Masking passwords among administrators is something we hope to address here soon. We’ll keep you posted, but please keep sending those votes in, folks.

                                    • Push Notifications To Employees

                                      If an employee is pushing 8 hours of labor, a reminder to clock out would be very beneficial and perhaps another reminder every two hours after. If an employee is clocked out for lunch and an hour has passed, send a reminder to clock back in--they may have forgotten and returned back to work. Also, a reminder to clock out for lunch would be very helpful, perhaps after being clocked in 3.5-4 hours.

                                        Lunch Reminders are a hot suggestion right now, so we will look into adding those in a future update. Please continue to vote for the employee notification you’d like to see, and include any details below in the comments section.

                                        Do not allow an employee to clock in until they are in the GPS fencing area. This way there is no mistakingly clocking in on the way to work .

                                          Thanks for the idea, Bruno. We’ll definitely consider this. Up until now, preventing an employee from clocking in because of their location is a little squirrelly for both parties. So we have a created a conservative in-between.

                                          Currently, you can set up Out of Bounds alerts in ClockShark that will alert you if an employee is clocking in/out from outside the GPS Fence. Let me share an article on how to set that up: http://help.clockshark.com/knowledgebase/articles/1135408-using-gps-fence-geofencing

                                          Out of Bounds alerts will make you aware anytime an employee clocks time when they’re not on the jobsite. We’ll keep our eyes on this idea’s feedback to see if that setting needs to be more restrictive. Keep on voting, folks.

                                        • Add a separate field for Parts/Tools Used

                                          Add a Parts/Tools Used Field, much like the notes field.

                                          In our line of business we use all sorts of tools and do many runs for parts everyday, a place to input those aside from the notes field would be superb! Please and Thank You!
