App settings can now be customized for individual employees (or entire workgroups) beginning with Android app version 23.0 and iPhone app version 11.0. This level of customization extends the power of the Timesheet Mobile smartphone app to a new level.
Do some of your employees need to receive Punch Prompt reminders when entering and exiting geofences but other do not? Maybe you would like some workers to choose tasks while punching in but others only a customer or job? Now you can configure this for each worker individually or configure it for an entire workgroup at one time.
Here is how to unlock the power of custom app settings:
1. Make sure everyone updates their app to the latest version. Here is how to check what version a particular employee is using: Check App Version for Employee.
2. Navigate your mouse to the blue user icon in the upper right hand corner and choose Account Settings from the menu. Next, select Punch Settings and choose "By Employee" for Custom Punch Settings:
3. To customize the settings for an individual employee, navigate to the Employees page, open the Control Panel for that employee and click on the Employee Punch Settings tab. Any changes made here will be reflected in the smartphone app for that employee only after they sync their app (for which a notification will be provided).
4. To customize settings for an entire workgroup of employees, go to the Workgroups page, open the Control Panel for the workgroup and click on the Workgroup Punch Settings tab. Changes made here will be reflected on the smartphone app for all employees in the workgroup. Note that any custom per employee app settings will be overwritten with the values chosen here.
Decide that you needed to make a change to all employees in the company? No worries, all you need to do is go back to Punch Settings on the Account Settings page and make the change there (a warning will let you know this will affect all employees - even those with custom settings):
