Server Handbook: Clock In and Clock Out

There are two places from which employees may Clock In or Clock Out using Lavu.

  • PIN Screen
  • Service Type Screen

Utilizing the Clock In / Clock Out feature allows a location to track their employees’ shifts for payroll purposes and bolsters user accountability. This feature may also be used in conjunction with Lavu’s Pay Rates and Employee Classes add-ons.

To ensure proper order closure and facilitate daily closing procedures, it is recommended that servers not be allowed to clock out while they have open orders.

To restrict servers’ ability to clock out with open orders, please see the following article:

Advanced Location Settings - Order Options

 

Clock In / Out from the PIN SCREEN

1. Tap the clock icon in the top right corner of the screen. Note that the “Go” button on the pad also becomes a clock icon when this function is activated.

 

2. Enter employee PIN using the number pad.

 

3. Tap the clock icon in the bottom right corner of the number pad.

 

4. Tap “Clock In” / ”Clock Out” OR “Cancel” to negate the action and revert to the PIN screen.

 

5. Tap “Continue” to complete the action.

A small ticket will print to the device’s assigned register with the employee’s name and punch time.

 

Clock In / Out from the SERVICE TYPE SCREEN

1. From the Tab, Table or Quick Serve screen tap “Clock In / Out”.

 

2. Enter employee PIN using the number pad.

 

 3. Tap the clock icon in the bottom right corner of the keypad.

 

4. Tap “Clock In” / “Clock Out” OR “Cancel” to negate the action and revert to the PIN screen.

Note: In addition to clocking out, users already clocked in will have the option to “Break Out”. This function distinguishes between a full clock out at the end of the day and a break; it is most often used to track lunch or other allotted breaks for servers working an extended / double shift. 

 

5. Tap “Continue” to complete the action.
