Criteria for using the My Patriot mobile app

Downloading the Mobile Time and Attendance App

Employees can download the Patriot’s mobile time and attendance app from the Apple App Store for iPhones or Google Play Store for Android phones.

Please make note of the version of your phone’s software version. You may need to update your phone before you can download the time and attendance app.

Logging in to the Mobile Time and Attendance App

Employees will use the same credentials to log into their mobile app as they use for their employee portal. Payroll admins will send employees invites to the portal.

Employees can learn more information on creating a username and password for the employee portal on our help article, “Employee Portal Login FAQs.”

Employers, please read, “Employee Portal Registration Access” on how to invite employees to the employee portal.

Navigating the Mobile App


When you first log in to the time and attendance mobile app, you will be on the “Today” screen. The “Today” screen also has an overview of the current time card and submission status. The “Today” screen can be accessed by clicking the clock clock icon icon at the bottom of the page.

To see the details of hours entered for the current card, click the “Details” link on the Today screen.

If your employer has set up time off hours, and you have used any during the current time card, you will also see the Available Time Off Balance.

Time Cards

To view the current or past time cards click the “Time Cards” calendar calendar icon icon at the bottom of the screen.

You can scroll horizontally or through past time cards, or click the calendar icon at the top right of the screen to choose a specific date.
