Works well within its functionality

4 stars for a really solid app in terms of reliability and user interface

The average employee will likely find this app useful in terms of clocking in and out. I’m sure managers find other features much more handy, but most of the time, you won’t ever find yourself having to access the rest of the app at all.

Considering that fact, the development team could add some features that would likely increase adoption and improve user experience. Please consider these enhancements:

** Create a Home Screen widget or Siri command **

A widget for clocking in and out would be so useful. If your app’s primary function is to quickly do one task, there’s no reason that function shouldn’t be turned into a widget.

Even better if it could be voice activated:

“Hey Siri, clock out for lunch on Paylocity”

** Add custom scheduling and notifications **

My employer does not give me a set schedule. It would be nice if the employee could input their own schedule (for purely personal purposes). This could be the basis for adding notifications to remind you when it’s time to punch in or out (based on your custom schedule, or your employer-defined one). Tapping the notification could take you straight to the punch in screen or punch widget. It’s easy to lose track of time when working, and having to manually set alarms is annoying and easy to forget.

Overall nice work. It’s tough to build a reliable, feature-rich application but your devs did a nice job.

Latest update caused a bug - 6/12 update

* added this 6/12 - apparently this company does not read the reviews because they have no way to submit technical bug problems in their app. It’s still has problems on iOS when trying to submit to clock in as they submit is grayed out but it’s actually a valid button if you want to call it that. Several of us are all experiencing the same problems the last few days when you try to look at the schedule it will show nothing, or it will take you to a month prior and you have to scroll until today, or it will show your today’s only and nothing else for the week or it will show you no one else that’s working at the same time. Having to close and open and refresh over and over to try to get any data is truly frustrating. What’s even worse is the fact that there is absolutely no way to submit anything to this company when their app isn’t working correctly.

I even went to APP support but it just takes you to the companies homepage and if you go to contact they won’t discuss issues with their software with users of it. So here I am leaving a review about a bug because they don’t give you any other way to do it. After the last update when you go to punch in or clock in or out or any status the submit option stays grayed out but ho ho ho! it’s actually valid you just have to click on it anyways. Normally the submit option in the upper right corner stays grayed out until the GPS has located you. Have a nice day.

Paylocity needs a desktop timeclock app.

I downgraded my rating since the developers are complacent and haven’t changed anything in five years. Paylocity is likely bilking America’s working class millions of lost minutes due to superfluous security questions and offline issues preventing instant login. The solution would be a timeclock-only desktop app for Mac and Windows, which could stay open all day without access to personal info. I used to keep the website open on my computer so I could easily clock in or out, because logging in each time is such a multi-step hassle. It times-out for security reasons, so this doesn't always work. Leaving the page open is a risk because if you're away anyone can then browse and see things like your pay rate and other personal information. For whatever reason, my employer has chosen to disable the timeclock feature on the mobile app, thus defeating the only useful feature of the app. This option shouldn't be available to employers. Paylocity needs to make improvements before another provider beats them at their own game. Again, a desktop app that's timeclock-only would solve a lot of problems. The manual punch is also ill-conceived. If you forget to clock in, or a bug prevents it, you have to punch whatever time it is and type a note with the correct time so your manager can be inconvenienced with fixing it. Would make more sense to honor the employee's entered time and flag the actual time as a missed punch.
