Employee time cards can be protected by either a password or a finger print scanner.
The passwords can are assigned by the Administrator, but can be changed by the employees. The administrator can always edit the passwords. We suggest that you start with something really simple like the employees initials. Although passwords prevent a lot of accidental clock errors, they won't stop buddy punching, so if buddy punching is an issue you should use the finger print scanner to verify the employee's identity.
When finger prints are used to verify the employee's indemnity, the employee clicks on his/her name and then touches a finger print scanner. ShopClock uses the SecuGen Hamster Plus finger print reader.

Finger Print Enrollment
Enrollment is the process of entering or registering the finger prints (two good examples of the same finger are required) that will be used to verify the employee's identity.
