Notification when employees clock in and out
Send a text or email notification every time an employee clocks in or out so that I know who's on the clock and when.
The developers are looking into this, but the more feedback the better!
This would be a great help!
We would like to see this option as well.
Our previous vehicle tracking would send a text notification when our maintenance vehicles left or entered our office location. A text notification when employees clock-in and clock-out would similarity report the start/end of the work day of our maintenance staff.
We also need a notification that lets the Admin know when an employee fails to clock in or out.
This is a needed addition to this app and software.
This is something we have been begging our app company for as well!

We have a new policy that employees cannot be more than 10 minutes late. It would be nice if T-Sheets had an option that would alert the manager when an employee clocks in past their leeway late time.
Would like something that at the end of the day have a notification pop up in an email or notification on the tsheets web dashboards, when an employee clocks in or even clock out for the day.
This is a great idea and much needed for my business.
This should be standard. Our company is in dire need of this feature. We have identified employees who are taking advantage of the lack of this feature to abuse the system. Our tsheets renewal is coming up in a couple of months. If this feature is not implemented by then, sadly we will be forced to move to another platform. Thanks.
This is a requirement, at least for us...Unfortunately it will not work for us without this feature...
Is this going to happen? REALLY would be nice to have and needed. Evaluating whether or not I am going to keep using this. Please let me know. Regards,
I own a janitorial service and my employees clock in all over town and it would be great to know they are on site without having to login every time. Thanks!

Not necessarily all employees - I want to be able to select just a few that give me an alert

Feature would be nice. Especially when it comes to certain employees who prove to be less than trustworthy.

Please do this as soon as possible. It would greatly increase the likelihood of our company staying with Tsheets.
This feature really needs to be added. I just signed up and was planning on using your program. But assumed it had this kind of notification system. I thought it would be standard to be honest. It not having it might make me change my mind.
You have it where I can get a notification when a note is edited. So Im thinking im going to have to make my techs put something when they log in and out to get a notification. So I think ive found a work around but it would be nice if this wasnt the case.You have the ability.

Is this going to happen? It appears this has been "under review" for almost two years. As the other commenters have indicated, this would be a very beneficial feature. I would not assume it would take much to modify the text alerts that already exist to include this feature.
I see it as an email feature box that can be checked in the MANAGE EMPLOYEES / EMPLOYEE EDITOR section. An added bonus, for those who do not want emails, would be to set up EMPLOYEES CLOCK TIMES pop up box that would show in and out times in a list for all employees. The current way to look up times in the manage sheets window lends itself to error when employees fumble their in and out times. It's a headache.
We have 3 trucks with 3-5 workers in each truck who begin and end in a different location every single day. Opportunity for abuse by employees is very high. So, this feature is extremely critical for us, and I am *very surprised* Tsheets lacks it, primarily because it is a feature that directly affects our bottom line. And if you are talking about 15 workers abusing a chink in the Tsheets armor, we are talking a significant loss of money over the course of the year. The GPS feature is helpful, but it has been spotty in some phones, and a supervisor just doesnt have the time to be checking in every morning and afternoon at 2 clicks per employee. Not very user friendly.
We are super happy with Tsheets platform, and over-the-top-amazing customer support, but the lack of a supervising time in & out feature would be difficult to ignore when it comes to revenue loss due to abuse.
The sooner you guys fix this, the even happier clients you will have on your hands. Otherwise, I can not see us staying with Tsheets in a few months.
Text notification would be ideal, as I'm driving around for the majority of the day...something along the lines of:
Alert: "Employee Name" Clocks in at "Time" at "Job Name"
Same goes for clock out...
