ESS Mobile is a smart, adaptive app that, when used with your employer's Attendance on Demand system, provides employees with flexible time tracking options.
You have access to the information needed to track your hours worked and review schedules or benefit balances. Notifications can be sent when your time card needs action, such as the addition of a missing punch. Messages can be exchanged with your supervisor to record attendance-related activities like an absence or if you will be late for your shift.
Using ESS Mobile hourly employees may be able to punch in and out, request time off, or enter tips. For employees that simply report total hours worked multiple time sheet views are available. Additional operations such as entering mileage, expenses, or tips are also available.
Contact your payroll administrator or Attendance on Demand service provider for additional details.
Note: ESS Mobile uses location services to obtain your location during app usage. Continued use of the app or background GPS tracking can dramatically decrease battery life.
Changes how push notifications are displayed when the app is open and in the foreground.
Ratings and Reviews
Late in/early out
Please add the ability for managers to accept or decline late in/early out requests. If I request a vacation, it’s easy to see if it’s been approved or denied. But if I need an early off, there is no way for managers to approve or deny them within the app.
This makes it difficult to plan ahead as most often, managers forget to communicate approval or denial via email or phone and the employee has to make multiple inquiries to find out if they were approved or not.
It’s not your fault that my managers may fail to communicate, but you have included an in app approval process for vacations. Please do so for this as well. Will upgrade to 3 stars if implemented. Thank you
Until the latest update, I could check my time card activity and the last punch would be shown within minutes. I could also review and approve my punch details for payroll. None of this is available anymore. I relied on these to make sure that the HR department got things right. Why would you remove these from the app? Did too many business owners complain that too many employees were catching payroll mistakes by having this information so available? With this latest update, the only way I can check my time card is to log in to the time clock in the public hallway while others are either looking over my shoulder or waiting to punch in/out themselves. BADLY DONE ESS Mobile App Designers. Very badly done.
Lets just say it is “Flawed”. If I was to set out to pay an engineer to design an app that is the most unintuitive app I could have them build, then I would hire the person or team that designed this app. Using a “hamburger dropdown” to transfer to another job after scrolling through to operations? Why? How about put the transfer and the punch in or out in the exact same spot on the same page? When selecting a job, why can I only see 2-3 jobs? How about fix the scrolling and use the entire page? And I do not know who decided that you can just deduct lunch break automatically, but there are laws that say otherwise! I will be submitting this to the BBB and likely speaking with my attorney about this.
