Timeclock Permission Settings

About this feature: Enabling volunteers to use the timeclock can help you track when volunteers are on-site, or engaged in specific activities. Volunteers will be able to sign in, select a specific activity and the hours will automatically be calculated once the volunteer has clocked out. 

Organizational Default Timeclock Permissions 

  1. Go to: Configuration, then click on “Hours and Timeclock Settings” found in the sidebar under Activities 
  2. Scroll down to “Timeclock Settings” 
  3. Set the Default Timeclock Permission for the organization: timeclock permission for timeclocks on a computer, or mobile phone, if permitted (cannot log hours, can log hours with approval, can log hours without approval)  
    • Note: This can be different from the setting you apply for volunteers logging hours through their “Hours” tab on their MyImpactPage.com profile. 
  4. Click the [Save] button 

Individual Timeclock Permissions 

You can have a volunteer follow a rule that is different than the one set in Organizational Default Permissions: 

  1. Click the person icon at the top of the screen and type the person’s name into the Quick Search bar. 
  1. Click on the volunteer’s name when it appears in the list 
  1. In the “Main” tab, click on the “Miscellaneous” section and select “Volunteer” 
  1. Set the desired “Log Hours Permission” and/or “Timeclock Permission” for the volunteer 
  1. Click the [Save] button 

Tip: To generate a link to your timeclock, click on the [Links] button at the top right of the Timeclock Settings section.
