What are clock Terminals?
Online Time Clock Terminals are simplified interfaces that you customize to setup on ‘terminal’ devices around your workplace soley for the purpose of clocking in/out. Terminals are built-on top of ‘locations’ so make sure you have them setup first.
How to Create a Terminal
You can create a timeclock terminal within your account under ‘Time Clock’ -> ‘Clock Locations’ -> ‘Setup New Terminal’
There are a number of options that are available, here are the explanations as well as some previews below:
Your terminal name will help you to identify the terminal within your management screen and will also be present on the terminal itself.
All terminals must be assigned to a clock location which restricts the online time clock terminal to an individual i.p. address, or computer.
Require Full Employee Login
If this option is checked employees will be presented with a username/password form to login before they clock in/out.
Show Employees as:
Here you can either set to show your employees as a select box, or gallery. This allows them to quickly select their name and clock in/out.
In conjunction with the above fast employee selection you can decide whether or not you will require users to enter their password.
If this option is enabled employees will be required to take a snapshot of themselves before clocking in/out. (Webcam required)
My Terminal is Setup. Now what?
After you have setup your terminal preferences you will see in the list a ‘url’ that is unique to this specific terminal. You will want to copy and paste that URL to where you want the terminal to be setup to activate it.
