Paylocity Time & Attendance


If you are using 7punches for time-clocking, or have a POS integration that includes labor, you can export your worked hours in a Paylocity-ready format. This integration allows you to share your employee's shift details with your Paylocity payroll. The employee's shift details include: 

  • The employee's information
  • The location the employee has worked
  • The hours the employee has worked
  • The role in which the employee has worked
