Setting up a Time Tracking Policy

Time Tracking enables your hourly employees to clock in and out at the beginning and end of their shift. Continue reading to walk through how to set this feature up for your company!

Note: There is not currently an option to delete time tracking policies within the software. 

Setting up your Time Tracking Policy

To set up your Time Tracking Policy in Eddy, go to the admin tab and click on the Time Tracking sub tab.


The system will then ask you to name your time tracking policy. If you track time in multiple states with different overtime laws, you could title the policy with the state name to help differentiate. To further understand your state's overtime laws, take a look at the following link from the US Department of Labor. 


If you would like your employees to be able to edit their own time within Eddy, click the box below. Otherwise, you can click "Next Step".


Next, you can specify your state's overtime laws.


You can also enable your Holiday time tracking settings, determining which holidays are observed by your time tracking employees and at what rate you would like to pay them for those specified days. 


Lastly, you can enable geotagging for your employees. This means that if your employee clocks in and out using the Eddy mobile app (still currently in beta testing), you will be able to see within a 20 meter radius of where your employee clocked in or out. This feature only works when your employee clocks in or out through the app. 

Adding employees to a Time Tracking Policy

From here, you will be able to add your employees to your newly created time tracking policy. They will have the ability to clock in and out of the software effective immediately. 

Note: Employees need to be added to a pay period before they are able to be added to a time tracking policy. If you are not able to add a specific employee to time tracking on your end, please reach out to 


You can remove your employees from a time tracking policy if they no longer need to track time. You can also move them over to a different policy when needed.
