Time Trackers

Updated by Leigh Hutchens

Time Trackers is a unique Quinyx term. It’s a feature for keeping track of hours, minutes, or days. For example, you can use this to track vacation balances, time off in lieu, or flextime. Employees can use Time Trackers to monitor their balances in both the Time card and the app.
