By default Time Clock punches can be done by using the following commands:
To Clock in, a user may say “Clock In” or “Start Shift.”
To transfer between different jobs, a user must say “Transfer.”
To take a break, a user may say either “Take a Break” or “Start Break.”
At the end of a break, and to resume work, a user may say either “End Break”, or “Resume Work.”To clock out at the end of a shift, a user may say either Clock out" or "End shift".
It is important to note that the actions taken by an employee are dependent on their current state.
- Employees who are clocked out are only able to do “Clock In” punches
- Employees who are clocked in can do any of the following: "Transfer", "Take a Break" or "Clock out."
- When an employee is on a break, they may either “Resume Work” or “Clock Out.”
