The Employee interface is as simple as possible. We've tried to give you the look of a rack of time cards for the employees to select from to punch in or out. TimeClockWindow also has a messaging system where messages can be sent to employees.
Just like a time clock on the wall, the employee would select their time card. To select your time card, simply click on your name.
Note the color “flags” preceding each employee time card. Green denotes the employee is punched in. Red denotes that the employee is punched out. Blue denotes the employee is “Paused”, may it be on lunch or break. If the flag on the mail box is up, the employee has a message waiting for them.
If the company is larger than 20 employees, you can click the blue arrow at the top of the screen to navigate through the pages or simply start typing in the last name in the search field to get to the employee to punch in or out. Note that the default search is by last name, you can also search by Employee Code or First Name.
For an Employee to punch in, simply click on your name. That will open the screen in the next topic.
The TimeClock Menu selection will open a submenu with three choices. If you are using the Internet Time Servers, you can force an update with the Poll Internet Time selection. The Hibernate feature is handy as it will let TimeClockWindow go to sleep and not keep testing the time until you are ready to punch in again. The other is to exit the TimeClockWindow interface. If the Administrator does not want you to close it, it will ask for the Administrator password to be able to close.
When in Hibernate mode the screen will look like seen below. Clicking Reconnect Now will return to normal.
The search tool is for large companies where you cannot see the time cards for all employees. An example is if the search by selection is set to Last Name, simply start typing in the employee's last name and it will selectively appear in the list. The Reset button will reset the search.
