Tracking Missed Shifts

Virtual TimeClock has a built-in leave accrual system that makes it super easy to keep track of accrued and used leave. This tends to be used most often for keeping track of paid time off like vacation, sick time, holidays, and personal time. I often get asked if the time clock also keeps track of missed shifts or time off without pay. The answer, of course, is "yes"! To start tracking unpaid time off, you first need to create the new leave categories that you'd like to use and configure them to be unpaid.

Now you can add them to employee timecards just like you would any other category of paid time off, by selecting Add Leave from the administrative toolbar. You can also use the built-in Report Writer to create a new management report that just includes a particular leave category.
