Overview: Administrators are in charge of the Buddy Punch account and settings. They can view all employee information, take action on pending requests, and add and delete employees.

Administrators are free accounts and don't count against your user count. Because of this, they are also not able to track their own time. You can have as many Administrators as needed.
