Why would I let my guards clock in when not in range, but create an exception ticket? In some jurisdictions, an employee may not be blocked from clocking in. Not letting an employee clock in would be preventing them from working because of technical difficulties, rather than because of employee performance, and from getting paid for the work they did.
Other use cases in include flagging instances where an employee is clocking in other than on site, or, if the user is in an area where GPS is not always accurate.
