Setting Up Users for MN Series Clocks

    One way to punch in to the uAttend system is via the web, using the URL that you set up when you created your uAttend account. When employees punch in via the web, they will simply log in and click the In or Out button to punch in or out. For more information, see Punching In Using The Web.

    For users who will punch in via the web, the administrator must first turn on the web punching feature within the user's profile. Follow these steps:

    1. Click the Users tab on the main menu.

    2. Select the user's name from the list.

    3. In the Username/Password section, click the Edit link.

    4. Enter a username and password for this user, then click Save.

    The user will punch in and out using this username and password.

    5. Click the Employee Services link.

    6. Click the Edit link in the User Settings section.

    7. In the Allow Website Punch section, click the Edit link.


    8. Select Yes, then click Save.

     

    Adding IP Addresses

    The IP addresses feature is an optional feature that allows you to specify the location(s) from which your employees can punch in and out through an Internet browser. For example, if you enter your office IP address range, you are ensuring that your employees can only punch in and out from that location. 

    To add a new IP address, follow these steps:

    1. Click the Settings tab on the main menu.

    2. Click the Punch Management link.

    3. Scroll down to the IP Addresses section and click Add IP Address.

    The system will automatically detect the first two sets of numbers based on your current location.

    4. Make any changes necessary, then name the IP address range (e.g., “Dallas Office”).

    5. Click Add.

    Administrators can set PINs for employees to use when they punch in/out using a time clock or the touch-tone phoneservice. If you are using a time clock with a fingerprint scanner, please note that there is a segment of the population with fingerprints that will not record. These users can still use the time clocks to punch in and out by using a PIN. If you are using a time clock with an RFID card scanner, you can choose to have employees punch in using a PIN instead. PINs are required for employees who punch in/out using the touch-tone phone service.

    To set a PIN for a user, follow these steps:

    1. Click the Users tab on the main menu.

    2. Select the user's name from the list.

    3. Click the Punch Management link.

    4. Click the Edit link to activate the PIN Number field.

    5. Enter a unique PIN for the user, then click Save.

    To set up users for punching in on a time clock with an RFID card (or badge) scanner, follow these steps:

    1. Click the Users tab on the main menu.

    2. Select the user's name from the list.

    3. Click the Punch Management link.

    4. On the user's profile, click the Edit link in the Badge Number section.

    5. Enter the 10-digit badge number that appears on the RFID card.

    6. Click Save.

    To set up users for punching in on a time clock with a facial recognition scanner, you will need to register their face templates.

    Registering a facial recognition template requires interaction with both the time clock and your uAttend account.

    Follow these steps on your time clock:

    1. Press the MENU key.

    2. Enter the default password (53178) if it has not been changed, then press OK.

    3. From the menu, select the first option, User Management.

    4. Press Add.

    5. Enter an ID code for the facial recognition template and press OK.

    We recommend using the employee’s birth date as an ID code. For example, a birth date of June 16, 1984 would be registered as “061684.” Each template must be assigned a unique code. Make note of the employee’s name and 6-digit code.

    6. Follow the audio instructions.

    NOTE: Please remove eyeglasses, as the scan will not work properly with them.

    The instructions will direct you to “focus eyes inside the green box” three times as the cameras take photos.

    7. Repeat the previous steps for each employee who will use the time clock.

    Next, follow these steps from your uAttend account:

    1. Click the Settings tab on the main menu.

    2. Click the Punch Management link.

    3. Click the Assign Users link that appears next to the name of the time clock that you used to register the facial recognition templates.

    4. In the Face ID column, find the ID for the employee.

    5. From the Employee Name drop-down menu, select the employee’s name.

    6. Click Save.

    7. Assign each facial recognition template to the appropriate employee.

    The time clock is now ready for registered employees to punch in and out using facial recognition.

     

    Transferring Facial Recognition Templates to Other Time Clocks

    2. Click Manage Face Templates.

    3. Check all of the face templates that you wish to transfer to an additional time clock.
