Punching In Via Time Clock
Employees can punch in using a uAttend time clock. Depending on the time clock they are using, they can punch in with an RFID card, a PIN, or their fingerprints.
For information on setting up time clocks, see the help sections on the time clocks—CB Series, BN Series, or MN series.

Punching In Via the Web
Employees can punch in using the URL that you set up when you created your uAttend account. When an employee logs in to uAttend, the Punch screen appears. They click the In button to punch in. If they are already punched in, then the Out button will appear.
