  1. Navigate to the project's Timesheets tool. 
  2. Click the Configure Settings icons-settings-gear.png icon.
  3. Configure the following settings:

Configure the Time Entry Settings

  1. Under the Time Entry Settings tab, select one of these options from the Time Entry drop-down list:
    • Start Time and Stop Time. Choose this option if you want employees to enter both a start and stop time on timecards. This allows users to enter the exact hour and minute that they started and stopped work and account for lunch times.
    • Total Hours. Choose this option if you want employees to enter only the total number of hours worked. 
      When you edit the 'Time Entry Settings' on a Procore project, keep in mind that updated settings are applied only to future timesheets. Updates to settings are NOT retroactively applied to existing timesheets. 
  2. If you are finished configuring your settings, click Update

Set Up a Geofence to Track Site Employees

If your project has been configured to use the Project level Admin tool's 'Latitude' and 'Longitude' values to display project weather on the Project Home page, Field Productivity users can also set up geofence to track your employee's field location when they clock in/out. A geofence is a virtual boundary around a geographic area that can be used by diary entries when an employee enters or exits the boundaries with a mobile device. In this procedure, it is assumed your geofence is configured for the specific jobsite location. 

  1. Under the Time Entry Settings tab.
    1. Optional: Scroll to the Employee Location Tracking area. Then do the following:

      • The mapped location of where and when a user clocked in or out shows if you click 'Onsite' or 'Offsite' under the 'Clock In Location' and 'Clock Out Location' columns on the Company level Timesheets tool's list page.
      • Project Address
        Mark this tickbox to set up a geofence around the project location. When the geofence setting is turned ON, you can define the perimeter of the geofence area. This tracks your employees who carry a mobile device, so when an employee enters or exits the boundary, the device reminds them to clock in/out on their device. 
        This tickbox is only available if the 'Latitude' and 'Longitude' settings for the 'Project Location' in the Project level Admin tool exist. The values must also correspond to your project's location. For instructions, see Update General Project Information
      • Geofence Distance
        Click and hold to move the slider until you reach the distance of the geofence perimeter that you want set up.
