GeoFence Clock In

GeoFence restrictions are upcoming features for ExakTime Mobile to help prevent employees from clocking in to the wrong location.

Warn employees when clocking in outside Geofence, or if Geofence is unknown - The employee will receive a warning if their device plots them outside the GeoFence for their selected location or if there is no GeoFence for their selected location.

  • Require employees to add a comment when clocking in outside GeoFence - In addition to the warning from above, the employee will need to enter a comment that will appear on your time cards to further review.

Restrict employee clock in outside known Geofence - If an employee's device places them outside the GeoFence of a location, they will not be able to clock in to their selected location. 


Track the movement of the employee based on the location data from the mobile device. For more information regarding GeoTrakker, please refer to this article: In-Depth: GeoTrakker
