At some companies, certain employees are entrusted with supervisory roles over their peers, offering a structured approach to management.

When you designate an employee as a supervisor within our payroll SaaS platform, it unlocks a range of functionalities. Not only can you filter reports based on this designation and send notifications specific to their role, but you can also organize your workforce more efficiently by filtering employees according to their supervisor. Moreover, supervisors have the ability to unlock time clocks, streamlining the workflow process.

However, it's important to note that merely assigning someone as a supervisor doesn't automatically grant them access to log in as one. To enable this functionality, you'll need to assign them a supervisor role. For detailed steps on this, refer to our article How to Set Up Custom Roles.

Please note that if your intention is to assign an employee the task of fingerprint enrollment exclusively, refer to our guide on How to Assign an Employee to be a Fingerprint Enroller for the Clock.
