When Employees Need To Clock Out Later than Usual, Use “Replace with Latest Clocking” in Ingress & TCMS V3

Wednesday, February 18, 2015 TimeTec 2 Comments

Under certain circumstances, some employees need to return to the office after they’ve clocked out to complete some tasks. How do employer deal with this situation in Ingress & TCMS V3?

Ingress & TCMS V3 can capture the last recorded time in the terminal instead of taking the first clock out time. This applies when you are using Weekly or Daily schedule.
Please be informed that the below configurations are done on Ingress software, as shown in the accompanying images. However, this can also be applied in TCMSV3 to achieve comparable results, as the configuration is similar with only a slight difference in the interface.

To set this, go to Attendance > Clocking Schedule > Range > Edit. You will find “Replace with latest clocking” option below the Range table. The boxes are available at every range column and you can determine your own sets of attendance rules. However, it is highly recommended that you only check this for Out and Done column only.

For example: The OUT time defined in the clocking schedule is 6:00pm and during the interval an employee checked out a few times at 6:15pm, 6:20pm and 6:50pm. If you have checked the box under the “Replace with latest clocking” for Out column, Ingress will select 6:50pm as the OUT record, leaving nothing missing in translation.

    1. Hello Vui Leong Lim,

      You need to enable user define IN OUT record in the schedule setting.refer screenshot : http://prntscr.com/l4m628

      For example you set for schedule 1, so any user are using schedule 1,compulsory to select a correct status key (Check in , Check out) before verify their finger at TA500
