How to enable 7Punches App Switching

GoTab supports 7Punches app switching from an Android device to enable 7Shift's time clock management tool set.


Please review these steps before proceeding with the setup of 7Punches on GoTab POS.


  • Android OS tablet or device 
    • Currently 7Punches and 7Shifts Android apps are not available on Pax A920 Pro
  • GoTab POS Display
  • 7Shifts account  
  • GoTab and 7shifts manager permissions

By default 7Punches App Switching is disabled when you first connect your 7shifts account. GoTab customer support must enable 7Punches App Switching before the remaining instructions are completed. Please email to request 7Punches App Switching be enabled at your location.

Feature Overview

GoTab enables an automated app switch between GoTab POS and 7Punches. Additionally, with employee sync enabled users will only need one PIN/PunchId to access GoTab POS and 7Punches. 7shifts time and labor management is applied through 7Punches. This includes scheduling enforcement and much more.

To help ensure employees are not able to access the POS before they are clocked-in GoTab does an employee lookup. If the user is not clocked-in GoTab will prevent POS access and notify the user they need to first clock-in through 7Punches. This feature is support on all display types (iOS, browsers, Android) as long as clock-in enforcement is enabled at the GoTab location. 


Step One - Create / Activate  a POS Display

For 7Punches app switch to work properly operators will need to install the GoT Ops application on their Android device. 

Step Two - Install and Log in to 7Punches 

  • From the Google Play Store search and download 7Punches 

Downloading any app from the Google Play Store requires a Google Account. If you received a tablet from GoTab an account was not created for you. This step must be completed by you before you can download 7Punches to the device.

How to use 7Punches with GoTab

Now that the GoT Ops POS display is set up and activated and the 7Punches app is installed your staff can now punch in/out. 

  1. Open GoTab POS and select Clock in/out
  2. When Clock In/Out is selected, the 7Punches app will automatically open to the punch screen. 
  3. After an employee punches in/out on 7Punches the user will be redirected back to GoTab POS to enter their PIN to access the point of sale. If the user needs to clock out for break, they will again press the Clock in/out button on GoTab POS.
