Add a pause button for, say, when someone has a quick personal errand to run, gets a personal phone call, or something like that. On the mobile device, there's room right below the start lunch and switch buttons. (I hate paying for employees' personal time during work hours!)
Fred, that’s a great observation! Using the lunch button (or even clocking out) allows you to clearly see when the employee stopped and started work. That’s an excellent, equivalent workaround one can use while we consider adding this in a future update.

Why not just have them just clock out when they have an errand? Or, just have them use the lunch button? This way you know exactly when they left and when they returned.
