Simple In/Out has many features that operate in the background to make your life easier. We can automatically update your status or send you notifications when certain events occur. Office Hours will allow you to limit when these features are active so they only happen while you're typically working.
Create scheduled timeframes for the automated features of Simple In/Out. You can choose which days of the week as well as the start and stop hour for the day. We even support overnight shifts.
If you work and play in the same geographic area, you can use Office Hours to only perform automatic status updates during your usual work hours. If you use one of our desktop apps for Windows or Mac, you can limit automatic updates based on computer activity as well. No more accidental status updates on the weekend!
Simple In/Out is great at notifying you when your people have updated their statuses, but it can be overwhelming if you follow a lot of users and they are working over the weekend. Now notifications can be sent only during your scheduled times. Work can wait!
Yes, you can choose which of the automated features comply with your Office Hours and which are always active. If you flip a feature switch to off in Office Hours, it will operate all the time.
Office Hours only apply to the device you're using. This allows you to have different Office Hours for your phone than you do for your computer.
We recommend adding at least an hour to the beginning and end times for your Office Hours. If you set your Office Hours to 8am and you show up one minute before that, your automatic update wouldn't be sent (because it's outside that time). If you start your Office Hours at 7am instead, you'll be checked in if you show up early.
If you disable your Office Hours entirely, then all the features will work 100% of the time. If you re-enable Office Hours, we'll pick right back up from where your schedule was last set.
