Configuring the Five Lunch Time Scenarios in TCMS V2

Tuesday, February 25, 2014 FingerTec 0 Comments

TCMS V2’s flexibility as a software for managing time attendance allows users to manage their attendance records even better. One such method is being able to set the remaining time of their lunch break to either work time or overtime. This allows employees to resume their job earlier after lunch break and claim whatever remaining time they have.

There are five lunch time scenarios in TCMS V2 that can be configured to suit the user’s preference. This guide will take you through the scenarios and steps that are required to configure them.

Migrating Data from TCMS V2 to TimeTec Cloud

Friday, February 21, 2014 FingerTec 0 Comments


You can now migrate your data from the TCMS V2 software to your TimeTec Cloud account. You do not need to redo the clocking schedule setup, nor do you need to insert employee biodata into the TimeTec Cloud account. The types of data to migrate are as follow:

1. Company information (name, address, contact info etc.)
2. Company hierarchy (names of departments and sections)
3. Attendance rules and calculations (clocking schedules, group duty roster, holiday, leave types)
4. Employees’ biodata (name, address, phone, designation etc.)
5. Employees’ verification credentials (ID, fingerprints, password, card ID)

However, this process won’t be able to migrate the attendance records from the TCMS V2 software to TimeTec Cloud. The TCMS V2 software is using a maximum of 6 columns to handle attendance records while TimeTec Cloud is using 14 columns.

Thus we recommend you to define a cut-off date, for example, the 1st of the month, in order to stop using TCMS V2 to download attendance from devices. Link your devices to the Internet, insert the TimeTec Cloud server IP and the devices will upload attendance records to the cloud server automatically. Now, you can activate the devices in the TimeTec Cloud account, then proceed to generate attendance records under Attendance Sheet.


First of all, please upgrade your TCMS V2 software to the latest version before you start migrating to TimeTec Cloud:

Step 1

Run TCMS V2 software > Click the New Release button.




Step 2

Proceed to download the upgraded version.

Step 3

Run Backup/Restore Databases > Backup command to migrate to TimeTec.

Step 4

Save the database file name to “tcmsv2_dplfn.zip”

 

Now log in to your TimeTec Cloud account and go to Migration Wizard (under Support menu).


Step 5

Click Browse to seek for the “tcmsv2_dplfn.zip” file > Click Upload.



Step 6

Select the employees to migrate into TimeTec Cloud (You can ignore those who are suspended or have resigned.) > Click Import Selected. System will process and a successful message will appear once completed.
