NOTE: Only employees with scheduled shifts appear on the Time Tracker.

Times in green indicate that the employee is currently clocked in. The start time is exactly when they were clocked in by either themselves or a manager.

Times in blue indicates that an employee has completed their assigned shift and successfully clocked out.

Gray lines along the top of a shift represent scheduled time. Hover your mouse over the gray line to see the scheduled shift overlay with what was actually clocked in.

If you have multiple schedules, times outlined in blue represent a shift worked on a different schedule.
