How does SmartTask help you automatically track and report attendance

SmartTask’s workforce management software offers several features that enable automatic tracking and reporting of employee attendance. Here's how it works:

  • Time and Attendance Tracking: SmartTask includes a time tracking module that allows employees to clock in and out electronically. This can be done through various methods, such as our mobile app, facial image recognition or web-based logins. Smartphone options are especially beneficial for remote workers or employees who travel frequently. The software records the timestamps when employees start and end their shifts, capturing accurate attendance data.
  • Real-Time Data Collection: SmartTask collects attendance data in real-time, ensuring that you have up-to-date information on employee arrivals, departures, and breaks. This real-time aspect enables better decision-making and allows managers to address any attendance issues promptly.
  • Automated Reporting: SmartTask automatically generates attendance reports based on the collected data. Managers can set specific parameters and filters to customize reports according to their needs. These reports may include daily attendance summaries, and exceptions like late arrivals or early departures.
  • Alerts and Notifications: SmartTask can be configured to send automated alerts and notifications to managers or HR personnel when specific attendance rules are violated. For example, if an employee is late, the system can trigger an alert for the manager to address the issue.
  • Integration with Scheduling: SmartTask is a fully integrated modular system. This integration allows the system to compare scheduled shifts with actual clock-ins and outs, helping to identify discrepancies or potential issues in real-time.
  • Compliance and Payroll Accuracy: Automatic attendance tracking ensures that payroll calculations are accurate and compliant with labour laws. SmartTask handles complex overtime calculations, tracks leave balances, and ensures that employees are paid accurately for the hours they work.
  • Cloud-Based Storage: Attendance data is securely stored in the cloud, making it easily accessible to authorised personnel from any location. This centralised storage simplifies reporting and data analysis processes.


SmartTask automates attendance tracking and reporting, streamlines administrative tasks, improves accuracy and compliance. It provides valuable insights for better workforce management, saves time, reduces the chances of errors, and enhances overall efficiency in managing employee attendance.
