Use of Clocking Range in Ingress

Monday, July 29, 2013 FingerTec 0 Comments

The clocking range is used to determine the maximum time that one slot can record before it is considered as the time for the corresponding slot. For example, value for IN is 08:00 and the value for OUT is 17:00 in Clocking Time as per the picture below.

If you leave the clocking range blank, the system will calculate the middle time as the range of time to be used as per the picture below. 

For example, if the IN column in the clocking range is blank, the system will calculate the middle time between the IN and OUT columns. For the example above, the system will use the middle time between 08:00 and 17:00, which is 12.30. Hence, if a user punches in at 12:31 onwards, it will appear in the OUT column in the attendance sheet.

By using Clocking Range, you can change the software's default data allocation system as per the picture below.

In Clocking Range, insert 15:00 into the IN column. This will prompt the software to overwrite its default data allocation and use the inserted time value to allocate the data. Now, any transactions before 15:01 will fall in the IN column while those transactions after will be automatically assigner into the OUT column. 

If the employees work according to the work schedule, you may ignore this option. This option is only for special work case scenarios where it is needed to overwrite the software's default data allocation system. 

Replace with latest clocking (as per picture below) - When you click this checker, Ingress will replace any clocking data with the latest clocking data after the download process. It is recommended to check on OUT and DONE columns only because Ingress will always check the latest OUT time of the users and will publish it in the attendance sheet.
