Some companies assign specific employees to be supervisors of other employees.

By assigning an employee a supervisor, you can filter reports based on that classification, send notifications for their assigned supervisors, and filter employees by that supervisor. Additionally, an employee who is set up as a supervisor can unlock a time clock.

When you set an employee is a supervisor, you can go assign this person as the supervisor of any employee. However, doing this does not give this employee access to log in as a supervisor. If that is your goal, you must give him a supervisor role to log in. See How to Set Up Custom Roles.

Note: If you want to set up an employee to only be able to enroll fingerprints, see How to Assign an Employee to be a Fingerprint Enroller for the Clock.
