How-To: Correct Missing Punches

Missing Punches

“Missing Punches” are flagged by the system when an employee incorrectly completes a punch cycle. Because the employee is required to specify whether they are clocking in or out, if either one is skipped, the time card will display a missing punch flag.

Note: An automated alert is not available if punches are missing; however, a daily report can be sent via email to provide all punch activity for the previous day. See the “Daily Auto Email” report for more details.
