Onsite License Guide

TrackTik's Onsite License feature allows users to access the TrackTik system from a computer's browser. Onsite licensing is helpful for users who do not need to complete checkpoint tours but still need to clock in and out, file reports, or use the Visitor Management module.

Note: Some features in this section are available in the staff portal without activating an Onsite license.


Onsite License Activation

Follow these steps to activate the Onsite license feature. From the Security and Patrol tab, activate the Onsite License feature.


Go to:
Site > Security and Patrol tab > Onsite Features > Onsite License 


Users will now access the site with the same credentials to access TrackTik on a mobile device.


Clock in Using an Onsite License

Articles where "Onsite" appears in the heading that describes Onsite license functionality require an Onsite license to be usable.

Users utilizing the Onsite license can clock in and out for shifts and breaks like a mobile device.


You can follow the steps below to clock in using the Onsite license.


From the Onsite tile, select the Site Access option.



The users will see the list of sites to which they are assigned.



Click the Clock In button to clock into the site.


Confirm that you would like to clock in.


The system will ensure you are clocking in at your scheduled site. If you try to clock in at a different location than where you are scheduled, you will get an error message telling you you are scheduled at a different location.



If the employee is not scheduled anywhere, the system will generate an unplanned shift and allow the users to clock in. The same will occur if you are not using Scheduling in TrackTik.


Once a user has clocked into a site, they can clock out, start a break, or leave the site. The user can also write reports from the Onsite license.
