  1. After clocking in or out, the User Status window will automatically close to allow the next worker to use the time clock.
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.

Clocking Users In & Out as Administrator
Administrators and managers have the ability to manually clock users in and out after turning on Administration Mode. To learn more, see the Manually Adding Timecard Entries Knowledge Base article.

Note: Administration Mode will always display the In & Out Board, even when employees are using the PIN or Passcode interface.
