Clocking in and out automatically with the DeskTime app

Clocking in and out automatically with the DeskTime app

When employees have to mark their arrival and leaving times manually, it often causes problems, due to human error, leading to irregularities in the accumulated data.

That’s why modern clocking in apps, including DeskTime, do it automatically. No more manual work time recording for the employees. Be it arrival, leaving, or break time, the DeskTime app tracks data automatically and precisely.

How it works

Use the time clock data for payroll management

DeskTime's time clock app begins tracking employee's work time when the computer is switched on and stops the tracking when the computer is turned off.

The app also automatically detects a lack of employee's actions on the computer – if the pause exceeds 3 minutes, the app goes idle. When an employee returns to the computer, DeskTime's time clock app goes back online. Workers can log the offline time as productive or let it remain as their break time.

Real-time productivity metrics

In addition to the online employee time clock, DeskTime can offer many features as it is first and foremost a powerful time tracking and productivity app.

Receive real-time reports on additional productivity metrics, such as which tools they were using, which tasks took up the most time, how productive the team has been, and so much more.

Because data is delivered in real-time, you'll always be fully up to date.

The online time clock data collected by the DeskTime app for each employee is useful not only for managers who can track employee attendance but also for payroll management.

It’s especially useful if your employees are paid by the hour - the accounting department can simply use the reports provided by DeskTime to know the exact hours each employee has worked and then calculate their salary accordingly.

Further to that, the absence calendar and shift scheduling features make it even more convenient, giving you the full picture of your team’s working pattern.
