Clock in and clock out when using Homebase

Hi there. I'm working on building out an integration, and I'm testing it out on a merchant account that uses Homebase for shifts. I know that employees clock in/clock out via thumbprint on the Clover device, and I'm trying to access that data via the Clover API.

As a note, since the "Shifts" app is disabled and we're using Homebase, I would not expect the shift information to be available via the Clover shifts api (/merchant/mId/shifts), and indeed calls to the shifts API return empty lists for all employees. However, since clock-in/clock-out is done on the Clover device, is that data available anywhere other than the shifts API?

Are you trying to get the fingerprint scans or the employee shift data from Homebase's Time Clock app? If it's the latter, we're not privy to how Homebase stores and manages employee shift data. From my testing, it doesn't seem like they use Clover's Employee API.

What is your integration trying to achieve?

We are trying to get the clock-in/clock-out times from the fingerprint, not the shifts. We do not need the shifts, so we're hoping to only maintain one integration.
