Gives employees an option to mark per diem for overnight stays
When an employee has to stay over night our company pays them a per diem. Currently they can leave a note saying they had an overnight but it would be nice if there was a box to check that would also show up in the reports ran with hours worked. That way after the employer runs the weekly hours they wouldn't also have to open up all of the notes to see if there is an overnight.
This is a really great request, and it’s one many folks have begun to bring up. Please keep voting your support for this idea, and we’ll consider adding it in a future update.
If you have any other questions or suggestions, please let me know. I love to hear them.

Does anybody have a good way of tracking this now? This is the only hiccup in our Timesheet process. We're currently adding notes but that is causing other issues.

I was going to suggest this feature but found this. Looks like it was suggested 5 years ago.
Is this still an active idea or has it been declined?
All we really need is a checkbox where the guys can submit a per diem request for that day. Then it can be approved or denied.
Currently, we have a job named Per Diem and have them clock in/out each day.
It works but I think there could be a better option.

basically an employee can comment for over night stay or be clocked into a job that receives per diem which can very in amount I would like an option to where selected employees can add per diem - per each day, select amounts, and add recurring per diem for longer jobs based on schedules or closing jobs also I want it to only show up to admins and employees whom can approve time

Have a checkbox on the employees time sheet each day to show that they are staying out of town that day so that it could tally up for per diem each week.
when I have guys out of town they are paid a per diem for each night they are away. Notes get forgotten or missed. I would love to have a quick and simple check box or something that they can select each day.

We send our payroll out to a payroll service & we have to use the Employee Details Report w/notes instead of the Time Sheets in order to let them know when we have per diem and /or reimbursable expenses. The report is not as “tidy” as the time sheets, I like the way the time sheets consolidate the time entries for each job.
I have a similar issue. When an employee has to drive over an hour to a specific job, I give them a gas stipend for that day. I wish there was a generic "reimbursements" or "expenses" field in clockshark that could be used for many different things. This way, we will know any additional amounts we owe each employee in addition to their hours worked.
I don't know how this would sink with quickbooks, but it would be helpful to at least have the option in clockshark so we can track these additional expenses with the employee for the week.
