Punch validation rules define requirements for a punch. Users can create invalid punches (i.e. ones that don’t meet the defined requirements), but they will be flagged as either an error or a warning, depending on how the rule is set up.
Validation rules are assigned to punch entry policies, which are in turn assigned to users.
Replicon can create custom validation rules for you. Contact your Customer Success Manager for more information on custom validation rules.
To set up validation rules:
Mandatory Custom Fields Validation
Requires that dynamic custom fields you specify in the rule must be completed
Checks that the employee has taken meal breaks as scheduled; allows for waiving of breaks, where applicable
Checks that the employee has taken rest breaks as scheduled; allows for waiving of breaks, where applicable.
You define a repeating period in which a break must fall, called a work period (for example, 4 hours).
You can also specify that each break must be taken in the second half of the work period, using the Break required after major fraction parameter.
Checks that the user is starting and ending work as scheduled
"User's Choice" project client selection -
Validates that a client is selected, for User's Choice multi-client projects
Punching at work location
Checks that the user is within their assigned place, defined by a geofence, when the punch was created
Work Day Hours
Checks that hours recorded are within the user's scheduled work hours
No, you can update a rule’s name and parameters, but you can’t maintain two versions of the same rule.
