Getting Started with 7punches

7punches is a time clocking app that integrates seamlessly with 7shifts. This allows you to manage Employee scheduling as well as time and attendance all in one place. You then have the ability to export Reports for payroll.

With 7punches, your Employees can clock in and out from an iPad or iPod touch that is mounted in your business. There is also an option to pull up the punch pad on a computer. 

Here's how to set started

  1. First, login to your 7shifts account as the Administrator. 
  2. Hover over your profile picture > Company Settings > Add-ons. 
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see 7punches. 
  4. Click on the toggle button to enable time clocking in your account. The following settings will appear:

Remember that you can always come back to change your settings. After you click 'Save', the clock icon will now appear in the top menu.

 Click on the clock icon to finish the setup: 

NOTE: You can either auto-assign punch IDs, or self-assign each Employee a punch ID on your own. Click here to learn more
 

Once you click save, your first payroll period will be generated. 

Click on a payroll period and you’ll be able to see which Employees have clocked in and at what time, all in real-time.

Approved vs. Unapproved Time Punches 
By default, a time punch is marked as unapproved if the Employee clocked in before their shift start time, or clocked out later than their scheduled end time.
