It is possible to manually add a clock in or out entry. Typically this would be done if an employee forgot to clock in themselves.

Employees can do this too themselves if enabled from within your Clocking in settings,


Before you start

Please be aware of the following:

  • This option must be enabled within your Timesheets settings - Read more >


  • An admin or employee can add an entry only when the timesheet is unsubmitted.

  • The new added entry can't overlap an existing entry.

  • The new entry can't be created while the user has an entry ongoing.

  • This can't be done on the Sage HR app.

    📎NOTE: If the clock is currently running you can't add a new entry for the current day until clock in day is finished i.e. you've clocked out for end of shift today.

    2. To clock back in when the break finished, click Add clock entry again, under Clocked in enter when break ended, then enter clock out time of end of shift.
