Overview: If your employer allows for edits, you can manually add punches from our website and mobile app.

Important: In order to be able to add a punch or punch & select time, your Administrator must allow edits. If you don't have the option to edit, then your Manager or Administrator will need to add your punches for you.

Q: Why don't I see the option to edit my punches or punch and select time?
