There is, we call it  "Penalty in & out time" which may be known as the "Grace period"

The main purpose is to validate any punches within certain period inside the schedule hour ( late arrival , early departure)  , and the punch will not be penalized (still paying by schedule hours)  and not marked as exception.


They are in  the pay group settings


Please consider the example below to get a better understanding


Assume "Penalty Time In and out"  are both set to 10 minutes

Assume schedule is 9am ~ 5pm

If clock in at 9:07am, there is no exception, and the work starting time is still 9am.

If clock in at 9:17am, it is outside grace period, and so marked as exception , work starting time is the actual clock in time 9:17am.

If clock out at 4:53pm, there is no exception, work finish time is still 5pm.


Please note that  if they are outside grace period and there is a rounding rules selected, the time will be rounded instead of actual clocking time.
