You may be allowed to use the Replicon Mobile app to punch in and out for your shifts and breaks.
You may also need to record breaks you take, or transfer to a different activity, if you work on more than one activity during your shift. You can also use Replicon Mobile to view your punch history, to confirm that punches were recorded correctly.
Refer to the end of this topic for a list of FAQs on using Replicon Mobile to punch in and out.
We're updating our app's punch interface – the images and procedures on this topic are based on the new interface. If the timesheet and punch combination you've been assigned hasn't been updated yet, you'll still see the old interface you've always seen. Refer to Punching in and out using Replicon Mobile (older interface) for procedures involving the old interface.
To punch in:
If you're using Android, tap the Clock In or Out entry in the menu.
The rest of this procedure uses images from our iOS app. The Android app looks similar, but it isn't identical.
If you don't enter time against projects or activities, the screen will show a round Clock In button only.
You can retake the image, if desired, by tapping Retake. Tap Use Photo once you are satisfied with the picture.
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. You can also view the unrounded time in your punch history.
If you need to change the project, task, or activity you’re working on during the day:
You will remain logged in, but your time will now be recorded against the new project, task, or activity. An Out time will be automatically added to the In punch you created for the previous project, task, or activity.
You may have a Take 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:
The interface will turn orange.
Even if you don’t have the Break button available, it is possible that 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.
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 Take a Break and Transfer options.
To punch out:
A screen showing the Clock In button will display.
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.
To view your punch history:
You’ll see all punches for today.
You’ll see the days for the current timesheet period listed; swipe up to scroll down to see them all. Or, use the arrows to select a new timesheet period, if necessary.
From here, you can view your total work and break time for the day.
This is where you can edit punches, or the projects, tasks, and activities associated with punches, if you have permission to do that.
If you see this message, you're likely allowed to enter time against both activities and projects and tasks. That configuration isn't currently supported by the mobile app, so you'll need to enter your punches via the web app or talk to your supervisor about changing your settings.
You've been updated to the new punch interface we've been rolling out slowly as we add support for each new punch configuration.
Refer to the Viewing your punch history section above for information on viewing the punch history using the new interface.
You may be able to edit your own punches, depending on the permissions you’ve been assigned. You may have permission to edit the fields associated with the punch, such as the activity or break type. Or, you may have permission to edit all of the punch data, including the punch times. Employee edit of punch times is rarely allowed.
Try to punch in and out as close to your scheduled start and end times as possible. If you are recorded as Out during your work time, your pay may reflect the time you were recorded as being away.
However, depending on your punch settings, your punch times may be rounded – either to allow you a grace period, or to make payroll easier to calculate. If this is the case, you’ll see the rounded times in your punch history. Look at the audit history if you want to see your original punch times.
If your punch record is inaccurate, talk to your supervisor. They may be able to correct your punch history for you. Or, you can correct errors yourself, if you have permission to do that.
If you see negative values when you punch in, your punches are rounded, according to your punch settings. For example, if your punch times round to 15 minute intervals, on the hour, at quarter past, half past, and quarter to each hour -- if you punch in at 07:55, your punch time will count down to 08:00, when the punch will be recorded.
Typically, no. In most cases your hours are automatically sent to your supervisor.
However, if you do have access to the web version of Replicon, and your timesheet isn’t automatically submitted on its due date, you may have to submit your timesheet manually. Talk to your supervisor if you have questions about this.
Depending on your timesheet settings, if a punch is added to a timesheet after it is submitted, it may be reopened. This could cause you to receive an overdue notice and require you to resubmit the timesheet.
If a blue triangle appears in the top, right-hand corner of a punch cell, it means that punch was edited after the fact (that is, it wasn’t recorded via a real-time punch).
Any additional fields you see when punching in or out that isn't related to selecting projects, tasks, or activities are custom fields added by your Replicon Administrator. Talk to them, or to your supervisor, for more information.
