Enabling Time & Attendance

If you're interested in taking a trial of the Time & Attendance add on, simply click 'Attendance' at the top of the RotaCloud system. If you haven't already trialled the package, you'll then be invited to activate your trial.

Setting up

Once you've activated the Time & Attendance feature in your RotaCloud account, you'll be asked to set up your pay period. RotaCloud supports many patterns of pay periods, and will use this pattern to automatically generate new timesheets that fall into the correct dates.

Once you've set your pay period, you can select how you would like your employees to clock in and manage their timesheets. It's here that you can enable optional features, such as smartphone clocking in, or allowing employees to manually edit their timesheets. Simply click on the 'Enabled/Disabled' button to toggle the options.

These, and further Time & Attendance settings can be amended at any in the Settings page.

Following this setup, your first timesheets will load, and you can begin using the Time & Attendance package!
