How to use GPS Self Check-In via the Nowsta App

Modified on Mon, 01 May 2023 at 12:42 PM

If your workplace allows mobile clock in, you can clock in and out from the Nowsta app on your phone.


Things to be aware of before you begin

  • If you don’t see the option to clock in, your employer may have turned off GPS self check-in.

  • Your employer can require that you clock in within a certain time range of your shift start. If you’re too early, you may be unable to clock in.

  • Your employer can also require that you clock in from a specific location. If you’re at the wrong location, you may be unable to clock in.

Step by Step Instructions

The easiest way to check-in for a shift is to find it on the home tab of your Nowsta app. Simply swipe until you see the shift, then hit punch-in. 

If you are not scheduled for a shift then you will be clocking into a position instead of a shift.


You can also locate the shift in the Jobs tab and clock-in there. Simply find and select the event, then select Timeclock.


You can follow the above instructions to start or end a break or clock-out as well.
