Time Clock Punch

    Now that you have set your time clock and associated it with your client account, you can start using your time clock to punch in and out. If you have not set up your time clock yet, click here.

    Before we start, to start using your time clock the following must be set up:

    • Client account created in master console
    • Time clock associated with client account
    • Users added to client account

    • Employees can login three different ways:
      • Pin - Enter 4 digit number (configured in the client account)
      • RFID - Scan your badge (configured in the client account)
      • Fingerprint - Scan your fingerprint (configured in the time clock)

    • Once an employee is signed in, the following actions will be available to them:
      • In/Out
      • Lunch
      • Break
      • Department Transfer (if enabled)
      • Sign Out

    • After performing an action, a successful punch will be change the displayed status.

     

    Employees can view their time card directly from the time clock, giving them easy access at any time. The employee must have the permission to view time card. Follow these steps to view your time card:

    1. Login on your time clock by authenticating via pin, RFID, or fingerprint.

    2. Tap the Time Card option located at the bottom of the screen.


    3. Your time card will be displayed with the option to toggle between Last Pay Period and Current Pay Period.
      • By default, current pay period will display.
      • If the account is new, there will be no last pay period option.

    4. The time card will show the following data:
      • Date
      • Day
      • Daily summary of hours worked by pay code for the pay period selected:
        • REG
        • OT1
        • OT2
        • VAC
        • HOL
        • SIC
        • OTH
      • Daily Total Hours Worked
      • Total Hours Worked for Pay Period
      • Time Card Approval Summary
        • Time Card Approval section is just a summary. The functionality to approve time cards from the time clock is currently not available.

    Concerned about privacy with biometric technology? 

    With Workwell Technologies, you can relax. All time clock users can rest assured that their privacy is intact. Workwell’s devices do not capture and store a full fingerprint or facial image so it is virtually impossible to replicate. The technology utilizes a digital process that measures the distance and angles of the lines in your fingertips or the distance between your facial features.

     

    Fingerprint and Facial Recognition for the Workplace

    Unlike the technology used by Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS) for law enforcement purposes, Workwell’s devices collect only a small subset of sample data (aka minutiae points), convert it into binary data using mathematical algorithms and then store only a digital representation of the fingerprint or face (not an actual image).

    Having only minutia data makes it nearly impossible to recreate the original image.

    Significant differences between AFIS devices and Workwell devices include:

    Image vs. Minutia Analysis
    Workwell devices rely upon only minutia data and not the actual image of the scanned fingerprint or face. Conversely, AFIS-type devices use facial images and the entire rolled fingerprint image containing the
    ridge patterns of the fingerprint. 

    Image size 

    Workwell devices use small optical sensors. AFIS devices require a full measure of the fingerprint, which is typically a rolled fingerprint image. The same is true for facial images. 

    No fingerprint or facial image is saved 

    Fingerprint and facial images are converted to mathematical representations BEFORE storing. 

    Incompatible with AFIS technology 

    Because of the different resolution, fingerprint/facial size, and image enhancement processes of the two technologies, the fingerprint and facial data collected by a Workwell device is virtually unusable by AFIS.

    Bottom Line: There are no privacy issues related to biometric identification and verification.
