Can't find this? This feature will only work if it's enabled in your company settings, so if it's not showing you might want to talk to the account holder.

When you're called in to work at the last moment the last thing you need to be worrying about is getting your boss to update the schedule just so that you can clock in. Thankfully, you don't have to; simply clock in without a shift and your time entry will be generated automatically.

Be careful though; your boss will probably notice if you start doing this when they haven't asked you to work.

  1. Load your Shiftie dashboard and click on the timer at the top of the screen.
  2. Click the 'Start Unscheduled Shift' button to log your clock in time and then confirm your choice. The timeclock will start, logging your time worked. The modal will update so that you can log your breaks and clock out once you're done.
