In order for the Clocking widget to be enabled for users of the Employee Portal, you need to enable it via Permission Sets.

Enabling the Clocking Widget

  1. In the left sidebar, click on Administration.

  2. In the Main section, click on Permission Sets.

  3. Click on the Employee Permission set

  4. Click on the Unassigned Permissions tab

  5. In the search field for Code, type TA_EmployeeClockings and tick it.

  6. Click on the Insert icon.

  7. To enable the Clocking widget, Insert must be ticked. This enables the Clocking widget, allowing employees to clock in and clock out as needed. Optional: View allows employees to see the Clockings tab in the Scheduler widget.

If the Clocking widget is not enabled, it will appear as below in the Employee Portal, notifying the user to contact the administrator for access.
