There are several reasons why you may be unable to clock in.

No shift to clock into

If a manager has set it up so that an employee must clock in within a certain number of minutes before a shift starts (30min, 15min, or 5min) and you try to clock in too early, you’ll see a “There is no shift to clock into” message.

  • If you’re a manager, make sure to let your employees know when you’d like them to clock in.
  • If you’re an employee, be sure to check with your manager regarding their expectations.
