Recording a shift can be helpful when you want to enter in a shift that has already occurred. This is typically used by site supervisors or managers who want to post a shift that an employee already performed and forgot to clock in. It can also be used if a supervisor needs to record a shift for multiple team members at once or if the user is inactive within Buildertrend.
