Flashpoint Q&A's

  LOG-IN TO FLASHPOINT  

  APPROVING HOURS  

From your Dashboard in Flashpoint:

  • Click My Company.
  • Click Work Reports and you should see the apprentice name with hours waiting for approval.
  • Click on the empty box next to the apprentice name and under National ID, to view the daily breakdown of each apprentice individually. Make sure there are no holidays or vacation days submitted.
  • Click the back arrow at the top of the page to return to the approval section.
  • If changes need to be made to the hours submitted, check the empty box to the far left of the apprentice’s name. Then click Reject Selected and the apprentice will be automatically notified via email that they need to correct and resubmit the month.
  • If hours are ok to approve, check the empty box to the far left of the apprentice’s name. Then click Approve Selected.

  DOWNLOADING OJT OR GRADE REPORTS

  CHECKING EMPLOYEE'S CLASS SCHEDULES  

From your Dashboard in Flashpoint:

  • Click on My Company.
  • Click on the apprentice’s name you want to view.
  • Click Student Profile.
  • The specific class they are in, is listed at the bottom and the Status column will show Enrolled. Under Upcoming Class Days, Flashpoint only shows the first 10 days of a class on this screen.  All daytime classes will have a total of 12 days of class.

  CHECKING ABSENCES  

From your Dashboard in Flashpoint:

  • Click My Company.
  • Click on an apprentice name.
  • Click on Student Profile.
  • The number of absences will appear for that apprentice.
  • Flashpoint does not have a way for employers to see total absent hours at this time (apprentices are able to view total absent hours when they sign into their personal Flashpoint).

  MISCELLANEOUS  

  • An apprentice can miss up to 8 hours without needing to attend  make up class. If 9-16 class hours are missed, make up class is required.  Once 17 hours of class are missed, the apprentice will no longer be in the current program and an email will be sent to advise the employer.
  • Please contact ABC with any questions at (515) 985-1160.
