Choosing a reporting method

There are four different reporting methods that are available in Time & Attendance. It's up to you to choose which one works best for your business.

Employee Timekeeper (Clock In/Out)

The Clock In/Out method captures, in real-time, the exact times that your staff comes to work, takes lunch and other breaks, and leaves work. Hourly workers can clock in and out to provide their hours in real-time via one of two methods:

Employee iPad Timekeeper (Clock In/Out)

The Clock In/Out method captures, in  real-time, the exact times that your staff comes to work, takes lunch and other breaks, and leaves work. Hourly workers can clock in and out to provide their hours in real-time via iPad. All workers will use the same iPad for logging their hours.

Self-Reporting In/Out Times

This self-reporting method allows workers to self-report their in/out times from Zenefits at any time before the end of the pay period. They can self-report their exact times (e.g., 8:45am to 5:30pm).

Self-Reporting  Total Hours

This  self-reporting  method allows workers to self-report  their total hours from Zenefits at any time before the end of the pay period. They can self-report their total hours (e.g., 8 hours, 6.5 hours).
