Time tracking works in pairs of IN and OUT punches. Below is a standard time pair for an employee that clocked in at 8:00 AM and clocked out at 5:00 PM.
When an employee punches out for a break or goes to lunch, a phantom punch will display on the screen to indicate for unpaid periods of time. This notifies the system to stop clocking the employee’s work.
When the employee returns from his/her break or lunch, they will punch back in and another phantom punch will display. This notifies the system to begin clocking the employee’s work again.
