Clock on even when you are off-line

The Personal TimeClock is now available offline on both the Definitiv iOS and Android apps.

If you have people who are based in remote locations or working in areas with a bad connection, this new feature will work wonders for them.

How does it work?

As soon as you have a bad connection or are completely offline, a message will pop up asking if you want to retry the connection or go offline.

When offline, you have full functionality of the Personal TimeClock. You can clock on and off, change duties and take a break.

Offline TimeClock

Once back on a network, all you need to do is sync your offline data and your timesheet entries will be submitted to the Definitiv server. Then you can go back to using the Definitiv app as normal; access a payslip, apply for leave, approve requests and so much more.

What you need to know

If you are already a Definitiv client, you will need to be aware of the following two items;

  1. The Personal TimeClock is the only feature available on the Definitiv apps when a person is offline.
  2. You will need to enable the “Offline Personal TimeClock” permission within the user role you want to add the offline functionality to. If you want to give the permission to specific employees, you may need to create a new user role.
