The main difference is that clock in / clock out is for technicians to use on a specific job site. The timesheet is much more general and used to indicate your hours for the day at the company - it’s best used for people like dispatchers, office staff and general workers. Clock in / out clock is best for technicians who have to work on actual job sites.
What happens if you are already signed into timesheets and try to use the clock in / clock out feature?
A technician cannot be signed in both to timesheets and onto a job with the clock in / clock out feature.
Here’s a run-down if that scenario happens:
- The technician is signed into the timesheet and clocks into a job.
- The technician will now be signed out of timesheets and into that specific job.
- The technician presses “stop” to clock out of the specific job.
- The technician is now signed back into timesheets.
