Clocking In With a Missed Stop Error
If a user's name is displayed in red with an 'X' next to their name on the In & Out Board, this means they forgot to clock out after their last shift and now have a Missed Stop error. To clock in for the day, the user will need to estimate their stop time from the previous day, choose Stop and then proceed with clocking in for the day. For more information, review the Missed Clock Out Error article.
