In the example above, Billy has forgotten to clock back in from break. When he went to clock out at 4 p.m., he realized that he never clocked back in. To Fix Billy's blunder, use the time clock and calendar icons to add the correct Date Out, Time Out, and Break Off times.
Tap clock icon > Enter Time > Press OK
Your system will be configured for either military time or conventional time. Billy's Time Out would be either 16:00 or 04:00 P.M., depending on system configuration. Tap P.M. if you need to change conventional time to A.M and vice versa.
Tap Calendar icon > Highlight correct date > Press OK
Focus will warn you if you have 2 time records that overlap or if you have entered a time/date out that doesn't occur after the time/date in. You may need to cancel and click on a previous time record to identify the issue. You can always delete an entire record that was entered in error.
Step 7: Select Save & X to close or save and advance to a different time edit
