Punching on tasks
When you are working with tasks you can punch in on each task created during a shift. When you punch in on a task you simply select the task and click Punch in.
Keep in mind that when you are punched in on a task and want to punch in on the next task, simply punch in on the next task without punching out from the first task. You can always punch back on the mother shift by selecting it and punching in. When you want to punch out for the day you select the task or shift you are currently punched in on and click Punch out.

Punching in/out for breaks
When punching with the mobile app you will see two buttons next to Punch out. Punch out for break, when punching out for break, and Punch in after break after your break is done. These buttons punch you out and in straight away and ignore the absence type pop-up dialog and overtime dialog. Making it possible to both have the absence type dialog available, and punch in/out and breaks, at the same time.
This requires time reporting settings in the agreement that you can read about here.
When a user is punching on a shift they will be required to be at a geo-location defined for that shift, it's either a tag for the shift or coordinates for the unit of the shift. If a user is punching without a shift, Quinyx will check the home unit's coordinates.
