Shifts, Unmapped Shifts, and Unmapped Employees reports


This section is where one can see the details of shift data that has been recorded on our system.


1 = Search bar

You can find the specific employee you are looking for by entering their details here.

2 = Date Range

You can view shift data for a particular range of dates by highlighting the desired ones.

= Clock In/Out Time

This denotes the times in which the employee was recorded to have started and ended their shift. 

Note: Instant receives clock in/out data from employers, we do not have the ability to change/edit this data that has been received. If an employee feels that there is a discrepancy with their shift data, please refer them to their location manager.

= Received Time

This is the time in which Instant received the shift data from the employer.

= No Instant Pay Reason

The issue which caused the employee to not receive an Instant Pay offer. There are a few possibilities: 

  • All Instant Pay Offers Blocked For Employee - The employer has turned off the employee’s ability to receive Instant Pay offer.

Note: If you have a scenario in which an employee is adamant that they should be able to receive Instant Pay offers, please escalate to a Tier 2 agent to investigate this. This can be due to an issue such as a duplicate profile, rehire or a genuine problem with the company’s census data.

  • No Clock Out Time - An offer cannot be created without the shift completion time recorded and received.
  • Job Not Eligible For Instant Pay - Within certain locations, not all jobs are eligible for Instant Pay.
  • No Active And Verified Job For This Employee - Employee Is missing a job from their profile
  • Hourly Rate is 0 - The employee’s wage has not been updated and an offer could not be generated.

= Notified At

The time in which the employee was sent a notification of an Instant Pay offer being made.

= Pay Taken At

The time in which the employee accepted their offer. Note: if this field is empty, this means that the employee did not accept the offer.

Unmapped Employees

This report contains the information of employees who are registered at the selected location, but their profile data does not marry with the information we have been receiving through the census file sent by the employer in question - which results in them being unable to receive Instant Pay offers. This is usually due to information such as First Name, Surname or Date of Birth being incorrect.

This report shows all employees at a location who have not signed up on Instant. We receive this data so that onboarding is speedy and can happen within 1-2 business days. We see all employees in-store irrespective of whether or not they are enrolled with Instant.

Unmapped Shifts

This section is where one can see shift data that has been successfully received for certain employees but due to inconsistencies within their profile, we are unable to generate an Instant Pay offer for them.

Similar to the Unmapped Employee report, we also receive all shift data for all employees in-store. Therefore you will see clocking data for people who have not signed up on Instant. The most likely reason for shift data to be unmapped is that the associated Clock System ID that has been associated with the shift is not present in the relative employee’s profile, this is shown below:
