Avoid Buddy Punching

What is buddy punch? We're not talking about punching a friend here. Buddy punch is when  an employee at work clocks in ("punches in") their friend when their friend is late to work. In the following article, we'll show how to avoid buddy punching.  By default, emplotime offers an open list on the virtual clock where the employee selects itself in order to clock in or out.  After checking the buddy punch lockout feature, the virtual clock will still display the employees open list, but, after the employee selects itself and clocks In/Out, he will be prompted to enter his 4 digit pin code.  How to activate the "Buddy Punch Lockout"? In order to activate the "Buddy Punch Lockout" feature, you will need to login to your emplotime administrator portal  and click on "Company Details", then, under additional settings check the "Buddy Punch Lockout" checkbox and click Save. From this time forward
