WorkZone is an app that allows employees to clock in and out of work remotely via their own personnel mobile phone. This can be very helpful for employees that work offsite or employees that work at several locations throughout the day on various jobs sites.
Employers will need to enable WorkZone on the payroll platform before employees can clock in and out with the method. Admins will also be able to decide which employees should and should not be able to clock in and out remotely once enabled.
We also recommend the Hero Academy Timesheets tutorial alongside this one.
