How to Configure Holiday Time Zone Setting in Ingress

Wednesday, February 26, 2020 FingerTec 0 Comments



Introduction
The Ins and Outs access of the buildings are crucial in ensuring safety, in particular, employee and company assets lost. One of the ways to reduce the risk is by limiting the building access.

For employee access, the time zone can be set for those who are working for a designated time period. For example, if the building has a standard operation hour, the weekday access time of the building can be set from 8.00am to 6.00pm. However, if a public holiday falls on weekdays, the building can still be accessed despite being a public holiday. To better address this concern, the Holiday TimeZone is designed to satisfy a higher security of the building access.

It is easy to establish the holiday time zone in the Ingress software. This software also allows the Time Zone setting to arrange workers by group. Setting the holiday time zone is also possible using the R2 solution, however, the settings for this will require each user to be set one-by-one accordingly. This could become a time-consuming task for big companies that have many workers.

Process 
Define Time Set
1) Access Level > Right Click on the Time Set And Choose Add Holiday Time Zone

How to Enable Attendance Record from Selected Device in TCMS V3 and Ingress

Tuesday, February 25, 2020 FingerTec 0 Comments



Introduction
When dealing with many devices such as Time Attendance and Door Access, TCMS V3/ Ingress software will record every clocking activity of the staff involved. But certain companies want the system to capture the clocking time for attendance from certain devices only.

In order to accomplish that, TCMS V3/ Ingress software provides an option for users to take no account of the clocking activities from other devices that are not set up as the time attendance devices. When you set this option, the attendance sheet will only capture the clocking activities from the selected devices and store in the attendance record.

Process
Therefore, we have prepared a guide for users to enable the attendance record from the selected device. Please follow the quick steps below:

1) Go to Scheduling & Attendance > Clocking Schedule > Add Clocking Schedule > Key in the Schedule ID > Name > Select Work Schedule (Weekly/Flexi/Daily).


2) Set the clocking time for the schedule (In, Break, Resume, Out, OT and Done).


3) Go to Clocking Range > Enable the attendance record from selected devices only > Tick the device name that you want the attendance record to be captured for each column. Please make sure you already add and activate the device in order for the device to appear in the list.



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.
