Punching in and out using Replicon Mobile (older interface)

We're updating our app's punch interface. This change is being rolled out slowly as we update each possible punch and timesheet combination to support the new interface. If the configuration you've been assigned hasn't been updated yet, you'll still see the old interface you've always seen. Be aware that one day when you update, you will start seeing the new interface.

This topic shows how to punch in and out for those still on the older interface. Procedures for using the new interface, along with FAQs and other information for punch users, can be found on the main topic – Punching in and out using Replicon Mobile.

Punching in

To punch in:

  1. Log in to the app and tap Clock In or Out if that screen doesn't appear by default.

If you're using Android, tap Clock In or Out on the main menu.

The rest of this procedure uses images from our iOS app. The Android app looks similar, but it isn't identical.

  1. Tap the Clock In button.

   

  1. If you want to record your punch against an activity, select the activity on the page that displays, then if you use iOS, tap Continue.

  

  1. If you need to take a photo of yourself with each punch, a Take a Photo of Yourself screen displays. Ensure your face is visible on the screen, and tap the circle to take the photo.

You can retake the image, if desired, by tapping Retake. Tap Use once you are satisfied with the picture.

The click will sound, and you will see a screen showing the result of your punch.

If rounding rules are in use, your punch may be automatically rounded to the nearest interval and the rounded time will be shown. (Your supervisor will have a record of the original, unrounded punch time.)

Transferring to a new activity

If you need to change the activity you’re working on during the day:

  1. Log in to the app and tap Clock In or Out if that screen doesn't appear by default. If you're using Android, tap Clock In or Out on the main menu.
  2. Tap Transfer.

  1. Tap the new activity you’ll be working on. If you use iOS, tap Continue.

  1. Take a photo of yourself, if required.

You will remain logged in, but your time will now be recorded against the new activity. An Out time will be automatically added to the In punch you created for the previous activity.

Recording your breaks

You may have a Break button. If this is the case, your administrator has defined one or more types of breaks you can take, and you’ll need to punch to record your break times.

To record a break:

  1. Log in to the app and tap Clock In or Out if that screen doesn't appear by default. If you're using Android, tap Clock In or Out on the main menu.
  2. Tap the Break button.

  1. Tap the type of break you are taking. If you use iOS, tap Continue.

When you are done your break, tap Punch In. You can choose a new activity to work on, if needed.

Even if you don’t have the Break button available, it is possible you still need to punch out and then in for unpaid breaks. Ask your supervisor if you’re not sure if or how you should record breaks.

Punching out

Typically, you should only need to punch out at the end of your shift, since breaks and changes in type of activity are recorded using the Break and Transfer options.

To punch out:

  1. Log in to the app and tap Clock In or Out if that screen doesn't appear by default. If you're using Android, tap Clock In or Out on the main menu.
  2. Tap the Clock Out button.

  1. Take a photo of yourself, if required.

Viewing your punch history

You can view your punches, and changes that have been made to your punches, to ensure they were recorded correctly. If you find an error, report it to your supervisor as soon as you can – they may be able to correct it for you. Or, correct errors yourself, if you are able to.

  1. Log in to the app, and tap the Punch History section. In iOS, you may have to tap the More icon first, to see Punch History.

A list of your punches for the current day displays, organized by activity and by type.

To view punches for a different day, tap a new date at the top of the screen. You can swipe left or right to view additional days.

  1. To view an audit trail of changes made to your punches for the selected day, tap the  icon.

All changes that have been made to your punches display, along with the punch activity and location for each punch, if applicable.
