In the TCW Client page is our best security feature. If your computers are on-line, you can use this feature to get the punch time from the Internet time servers. Whenever you set up for the first time or upgrade TCW, you will need to test the time servers. If you run a new installation, and are using Vista you will see a screen like you see below which you test one of the servers for the first time. It will also pop up the first time that you run the Employee Interface with this option turned on.
The next image shows a example of setting up the time servers. We've turned on the Time Client, added and selected the servers to use and set the time interval to use at 5 minutes. Every five minutes, your employee interface will poll the time servers alternating every five minutes using the next in line.
This provides the highest security where employees cannot cheat by changing the computer clock to punch in on time when they are late.
Also from the main page, by selecting "Data Path" you can see where your database is. You would also use this to set the location when installing TimeClockWindow on workstations in your network so employees can punch in and out on other stations after the initial setup of your database on the Server or "Main Computer".
