FINSYNC allows payroll administrators to set authorized locations for employee clock-ins. This is a great tool for being sure that team members are only clocking hours from their place of work.

Note: A clock in from within 300 meters of Google's map pin will treated as an authorized clock in on time clock reports.

2. Click on the Settings button in the top right.

7. Fill out the address section using copy-paste or begin typing.

Note: If you are currently at the location you are creating, you can click Get my current location to auto-populate this field.

8. When the correct address appears in Google's suggestions, select it.


9. You should now see the selected location with a red map pin. Click Save and your new authorized location will be available for employee clock-ins.
