Punch in and out for your shift from the Planday app

If your employer has activated Punch Clock, you’ll see your shifts for the current day in the Punch Clock widget on the Overview screen. You can clock both in and out from here.

Leave a comment for a manager when punching in

You also have the option to add a comment when you clock in or out. If you’re early, late, or need to communicate with your manager about your working time, this is the place to do it. They would see this comment when they approve your shift.

How to punch in for an extra shift

Suppose you’re not on the schedule but are working; clock in by pressing Add extra shift. Next, choose the Department and Employee group where you belong and press Start shift.

⚠️ Don’t see the Add extra shift option? The ability to punch in for an extra shift needs to be enabled by your Planday admin for this setting to appear.

💡If you are using an iOS device with iOS 14 or later, please enable Precise location access for the Planday app. This is necessary to ensure that your company’s requirements for punching in/out of a shift are met.

Punch in and out for a break from the Planday app

⚠️ You must be punched into your shift before clocking your break.

As an employee, you can register your break via the Planday app if your manager has enabled breaks on your shift. Start your shift by clocking in and pressing the Start break button when it is time for a break. Once the break has started, you can continuously track the length of the break with the red timer.

💡 You can cancel a break within 2 minutes of punching in, and it will not be recorded.

To finish a break, press End break. You will be able to see the total break time and again have the option to start a new break or end your shift.

⚠️ Be aware that the timer may be slightly delayed if your mobile has been in sleep mode. Please wait a bit; the timer will update itself with the correct time.
