How To Configure Web Clocking With Geolocation In TimeTec TA

Monday, December 31, 2018 FingerTec 2 Comments


Introduction:
There are several clocking options provided by TimeTec TA which are FingerTec Biometric Terminal Clocking, Web Clocking, GPS Clocking, Mobile NFC Clocking and Mobile Beacon Clocking. For more details regarding these clocking methods, please refer to this article: http://www.fingertectips.com/2017/04/tips-to-choosing-best-clocking-method.html

That said, in this article, we will be guiding you on how to configure Web Clocking with Geolocation in TimeTec TA. Please refer to the steps below on how to carry out this particular process.

How to enable Web Clocking:
1. Make sure that the users have a valid email address and have already activated their TimeTec TA account.
2. By default, all users with an email address will be allowed to view their attendance via Web at www.timetecta.com.
3. Set Web Clocking permission at Device > Assign Users to Device > Allow Web Access.

Web Clocking With Geolocation:
In recent release, TimeTec TA has included a new feature for Web Clocking complete with Geolocation. This new function of location sharing is implemented through the HTML5 Geolocation API, which uses the location services feature provided by the browser to determine your location.

Once you log into TimeTec TA, you will be able to view the screen below. Proceed to select the Clocking Types and Work Code. Lastly, enter the password to confirm your attendance and click on the Clocking button.


As clocking with the location data provided might pose some privacy issues, the location data will thus not be available unless the user approves it. This means that while clocking, you will need to click on ‘Allow’ on the pop-up that requests for your permission on your location.
 

Once done, a successful clocking message will be displayed along with the location that you’ve clocked at.


That it, you’re all set! For further enquiries about TimeTec TA, feel free to contact our Support Team by sending an email to support@fingertec.com

system, this is due to our continuous effort to improve our system from time to time. Please notify us at info@timeteccloud.com, we will update it as soon as possible.

How To Solve Parse Failed Error when Importing User Data from Excel file in Ingress/TCMS V3

Monday, December 31, 2018 FingerTec 0 Comments


Introduction:
Instead of individually enrolling user ID into the device, note that system administrators can upload all user data (such as UserID, Name, Username, Department) from the Excel files. This is done to reduce processing times as well as to prevent the repeating of steps when enrolling the users. However, they must first ensure that the appropriate excel file templates are used before importing the data into TCMS V3/Ingress Software; otherwise, the system will display the error “Parse Failed”.

Apart from that, the PC Setting can also cause the “Parse Failed” error to occur even though the Excel format is correct. Please refer to the steps below on how to solve this particular error.

Process:
There are 2 situations which can caused the “Parse Failed” error to occur:

A.   Excel File Format
B.   PC Setting

Excel File Format:
A1. Users must first create 1 new Excel file based on the template shown in the software.
Additionally, you can download an example of the Excel file here: https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.fingertec.com/Yusri+Tools/Badge.xlsx

Refer to the screenshot below for more clarification-


A2. In the Excel file, you must insert only the data (i.e. without color or box). Please refer to the example in the screenshot below.


Remark - If you include the data with color or table, it will then cause a “Parse Failed” error to be displayed during the import process.
 


PC Setting: 
B1. If the Excel files are already configured based on the given steps, but are still displaying the “Parse Failed” error; the cause might be due to the PC setting.

To solve the issue, please download Microsoft Access Database Engine in the link provided below.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=13255

If you have other inquiries or still unsuccessful in importing the Excel data into TCMS V3/Ingress Software, kindly forward your Excel file to support@fingertec.com for further review and we will also update this article if we discovered another issue that is causing the error.

Note: If some of the screenshots or steps viewed here are different from the ones in the current
system, this is due to our continuous effort to improve our system from time to time. Please notify us at info@timeteccloud.com, we will update it as soon as possible.
