This ability is a must!! Imagine all the time I spend editing payroll due to clocking in early. Those minutes add up at the end of a pay cycle. I love the suggestion of a 5 minute window.

I was thinking a early clock in window setting would be nice. If someone is scheduled to start at 6, I can select the earliest they can clock in is 5:50 for example or 5:55. I would like the earliest for our employees to clock in before their scheduled shift to be a 5-10 minute option that I can select.

Limit the ability to clock in by schedule. Employees schedule should dictate when they can clock in. If an employee clocks in early or late (say more than 7 minutes), then a supervisor needs to approve the punch with either their pin code on the employees device or via push notification. This way we have an immediate resource to help us know what is going on
We run a team of plumbers who work an 8 hour shift. They work 7-3 but punch in earlier than 7 am as they don't want to forget to clock in. When we run reports it gives all of those hours and we have to then manually back out time. We use this app for jobsite labor expense and we would like to make it more acurate and have it work for us not against us. If you can find a way to have set parameters where they can not punch in until 7 and or set up shifts that regardless of the clock in time the reporting extends the 8 hours that would be helpful. We have saved the report as a csv file and are trying to work a formula to deduct the amounts - but it seems as though this should be somehting you can write in the program to do for us as possibly a custom feature. Any help would be appreciated.

Second this comment. We would like to restrict clock in times within 5 minutes of scheduled time. This was a great feature of Hotschedules and it saved us thousands of dollars annually
