We hope you all had a great labor day weekend. The VeriClock team has been hard at work to deliver on a number of requested feature updates.
The Activity View provides a high level overview for shifts performed over a select time period. It is now easier to search for specific shifts by filtering for specific jobs and service items. You can also show only shifts that were Clocked Out because a geofence was exitted.
Third Party Sign-Off Feature
This feature allows a third party the ability to confirm the hours being submitted by an employees along with other pertinent information about a shift. Now you can include notes and pictures that the employee adds during the shift to the report that is reviewed by the third party.
To enable this setting, go to Settings --> Time --> Third Party Approval and Enable "Include Activity Notes and Files"
Employee Signature Requests
Now it is easier to remind employees to digitally sign their time cards. You can enable notifications from Settings --> Time --> Signature.
Employees will receive notifications via Email, SMS or in the app.
Geofence Availability and Set up
Geofences can not be enabled on all accounts. This features allows you to create a virtual perimeter around an physical area (i.e. building, park, facility etc.)
Employee location can be managed by preventing an employee from clocking in or out if they are not within a geofence and you can automatically clock an employee out if they leave the geofence.

When setting up a Geofence, it is important to ensure that the correct jobs are associated with a geofence. We've added some helpful warnings in case more than one geofence is associated with a job.
Additional warnings will appear if Continuous Tracking is not properly enabled.
