Complete Guide to ExakTime Mobile Forms

ExakTime Forms allows you to have users/employees answer questions when clocking in or out for the day and collect that date for further review in ExakTime Connect.

The default mobile forms currently offered are the following:

  • A set of COVID-19 screening questions when clocking in (Added in 2020)
  • "Were you injured on the job today?"
  • "Did you take all of your meals and breaks?"

What Employees Experience

Depending on your employee's actions, they can see the mobile form prompts when clocking in and/or out. They would simply need to answer/enter the necessary information into the given fields. The data will only be recorded if the employee completes the process. If the employee backs out or closes ExakTime Mobile in the middle of filling out the form and before finishing their clock in/out, the data will not be recorded and lost.
