Time & Attendance

MakeShift goes beyond typical staff scheduling software—it’s a complete time and attendance solution. Employees can clock in and out from their phones (or a dedicated on-site device), generating accurate timesheets automatically. MakeShift also supports payroll data export to Excel, and several popular payroll providers.

  • Accurately track employee time by having your staff clock in and out for their shifts and breaks.
  • Geofence-enabled clock ins.
  • Prevent 'buddy punching' with photo punches.
  • Use the web app or MakeShift Live as an on-site time kiosk for employees to clock in on.
  • Custom overtime and stat holiday pay rules.
  • Approve timesheets and quickly export for payroll.

Team Communication

MakeShift’s online employee schedule software ensures managers and employees are all working with the same information. The online scheduling software and mobile app automatically update scheduled shifts, availability and other information in real time. Plus, you can set custom notifications so you’ll know as soon as anything changes.

  • Send announcements to all staff.
  • Receive push notifications when employees clock in, so you know who is working and who is late, absent, or on break.
  • Broadcast an available shift to eligible staff.
