Getting Started With SINC

Welcome to SINC! Here's a few quick video walkthroughs to help you get up and running and make the most out of our service.

1: Get To Know Your Admin Overview Area

It's important to understand how to navigate your Admin Overview Area, as it's here where you'll spend most of your time using SINC as an Admin.

It's especially important to learn how to export your pay period summaries to email, as this is what you'll be using for payroll.

The quick video tutorial below will show you how to:

  • Navigate the admin area
  • Filter shifts and summaries by pay period and staff member
  • View notes for pay periods and their associated shifts
  • Export detailed pay period summaries via email

2: Learn How To Add Staff Members

Before you begin using SINC to track your employee's hours, you'll need to invite them to join your organization. Fortunately, we've made this process straightforward and simple.

The tutorial below will show you:

  • How to send an invite email to an employee
  • The quick sign-up process that the employee will then go through to join your organization

3: Collect Staff Hours via Detailed Pay period Summaries

When it comes time for payroll, we've made generating a detailed summary of employee hours a simple one tap process.

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • How to generate a summary for a specific pay period, which will then be emailed to you
  • How to navigate the Excel spreadsheet within the summary
  • An overview of the individual pdf summaries you can print and give to staff, as well as an important note regarding when hours are displayed in hours and minutes (e.g 6:45) versus total decimal hours (e.g 6.75)

4: Enable Location Tracking For Staff

Location tracking in SINC is off by default to save battery, so it must be enabled on a staff member by staff member basis.

This quick tutorial will show you:

  • How to enable location tracking for each staff member you want to use the service for
  • What the employee will see from there end, and an important note regarding location permissions
