Kiosk Time Clock
This Help Doc is all about the Kiosk Time Clock
What is the Kiosk Time Clock
The Kiosk Time Clock is a time clock that can be used as a clock in/out station at a job site. You can simply pull it up on a tablet or computer, and employees can clock in and out using their email or a time clock pin. You can find the Kiosk Time Clock under the Attendance header.
When you click Kiosk Time Clock, it will open in a new tab separate from your ZoomShift page, which allows you to keep the Kiosk separate from your management account. You can even close out of your ZoomShift page and leave the Kiosk up. We recommend creating a bookmark on your browser specifically for the kiosk, so you will not need to open it up again through the Attendance tab.
When employees clock in and out using the kiosk a timesheet will be created for the shift.
Enabling the Kiosk time clock
You can do this in Settings>Time Clock.
Simply toggle on the Kiosk Time Clock to make it available for use.
Whitelisting Kiosk IP Addresses
If you choose to use the Kiosk, you can Whitelist Kiosk IP Addresses, which means that you can approve what computer(s) or tablet(s) team members are able to clock in/out on. Team Members will then be unable to clock in/out on any unapproved devices. You can also choose between using just a Time Clock Pin only, use of email, or both to clock in/out. (Whitelisting can be found in Settings>Time Clock)
If you are flagging or blocking Too Far From Location in Settings>Timesheet Error Rules. Make sure that if you are not whitelisting IP addresses for the Kiosk, that you have a buffer of about 405 meters entered. GPS is not always as precise as we believe, so this will make it so team members are not blocked or flagged for attempts to clock in at work just due to GPS inaccuracy.
Utilizing Time Clock Pins
You can set a unique time clock pin for each of your team members. This can be done on the Team Page by clicking on each individual Team Member to open their profile. You can then add a Pin in the Time Clock Pin section. Time Clock Pins can be numbers or letters, or both.
Once you have entered a pin for a Team Member they can use that Pin or their email to clock in and out via the Kiosk.
Don't want them to use their email to clock in and out? No problem. Toggle on Only Allow Time Clock Pin option in Settings>Time Clock. Using this feature will make it so Team Members can only use their Pin to clock in and out.
