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