This document will show you how to set up offsite attendance.
I. Function Overview
When employees need to work from home or other places, you can enable the offsite clock-in/out function. The attendance system will automatically record employees' locations.
Note: If you don't enable this function, normally the employees can't offsite clock in/out. But when employees' requests for out of office or business trips are approved, the employees can offsite clock in/out during their stay outside or business trips.

Q: The employee does not have a fixed work place. I turned on the offsite attendance clock-in/out, but I got an error "Please enter the information for the attendance GPS" when submitting. What should I do?
A: You can create a new attendance location, and turn on the "Allow to clock in/out offiste" switch. In this way, employees can clock in/out offsite, and the system will automatically record the location.
