Use Timesheet groups to create multiple groups of employees and their timesheet managers, and ultimately give employees access to use the Timesheets module . This is perfect for different working patterns or managing timesheets for employees in different locations.
Tip: Once you add an employee to a timesheet group, the timesheet option appears in their CakeHR. If you want to make sure everything is set up first before you employees log in for the first time, then it is a good idea to set up working patterns before timesheet groups.
Only employees with administrator or timesheet administrator access can follow these steps:
Create Timesheet group
- Click your name in the top right, then click Settings.
- On the settings menu click TIMESHEETS, then click Timesheet groups.
- Click ADD NEW GROUP, then name the group.
- Select the settings you want to apply to this Timesheet group.
5. Click SAVE.
Note: The option Allow employees under their group to clock in from a mobile device does not mean within the CakeHR app but when you access CakeHR on a mobile device's internet browser.
