For payroll purposes, all employees at your center must check in and check out at the start and end of each shift. Failure to effectively manage the employee check-in or checkout may result in payroll errors.
To check an employee in or out
🚩 Important: Only scheduled employees are listed in Appointment Book for clock-in and clock out. This means you must first set up the employee schedule and then try to check-in or check out employees.
1. In the top-right corner of the Appointment Book, click the Employee Check In/Out icon.
The Select Employee window opens.
2. Click the Employee drop-down list and select the name of the employee you want to check in or out.
3. Enter your username and password for authorization.
If you are checking in, Zenoti automatically captures the employee's check-in time.
The name of the employee appears in green if the employee comes to work on time and in red, if the employee comes late to work. If the employee is scheduled to work, but did not check-in yet, the employee block turns red.
Note: The employee block appears grey for employees who are not scheuled to work on a given day.
Tip: If you don't want to use these color highlights, turn off the setting, Enable visual indicators related to employee attendance in Appointment Book from Admin > Organizations > Center > Settings > Appointment Book.
If the selected employee is already checked in, Zenoti checks her out.
Note: On a given day, you can extend an employee’s schedule even if the employee has already checked in. For example, if the employee was due to work from 9AM to 4PM, you can now edit this to say, 9AM to 6PM. Only users who have the appropriate permissions to edit employee schedules can extend the employee schedules.
Note: You still cannot make changes to the employee’s status after the employee has checked in. For example, if the employee’s status is Working, you cannot change it to Leave or Weekly Off.
