Alerts for Missing Punches

With 7punches, Managers and Employees can be notified when a punch is missed at the start or end of a scheduled shift.

Alerts for Missing Punches is available on The Works plan or higher and only for locations using 7punches to clock in.

When an employee has not clocked in or out for their shift, Admins and Managers who are on a scheduled shift will receive a push, sms, or email alert to notify them that the employee has not punched in / out:

Managers will only receive alerts if they are scheduled and only for Employees, at the same Locations, they are assigned to. 

To enable Missed Punch Alerts:

1. Hover over the profile picture in the top right corner, then select  Add-ons > Time Clocking Settings > 7punches settings

2. Check the box labeled 'Alerts for missing punches'

3. Set the timeframe for late punch alerts to be sent. 

You can set the time for Employees to be notified separately from the Manager's notification.

Notifications will be sent via email and SMS / push, depending on your notification settings.
