Punch Clock allows staff to clock in for their shifts through the Planday app, via web browser or the designated Kiosk app for iPad. Set up Punch Clock to improve accuracy in time tracking of worked hours.
Set up web-based Punch Clock by registering your IP address with Planday
For employees to clock in and out through PunchClock.Planday.com an administrator needs to register the IP address of the network used to access Punch Clock from the workplace:
Go to Settings > Punch Clock > Employee access, and click the Add button under Web access.
You will see your current IP address, and if you're on the same network your employees will use to clock in and out, this is the address you will add.
Add the IP address.
Enter a name, e.g. the location employees will clock in and out.
Don't see the IP address?
Don't see the IP address?
After the IP address is registered, your employees can clock in and out using PunchClock.Planday.com
By toggling on “Punch Clock allowed from the workplace Wi-Fi (IP-address(es) must be defined)” your employees will be able to punch in using the app when their mobile device is connected to the network.
What do I do if the IP address isn't recognised?
If you can't access PunchClock.Planday.com, it is most likely due to a change in your dynamic IP address. Your Internet Service Provider will sometimes change your dynamic IP address. You can add the new IP address by following the steps above when connected to the internet access point used at the workplace.

Allow employees to punch in for an unscheduled shift

Go to Settings > Punch Clock > Advanced > Display settings and select Yes in Punch in without a shift.
