Sunday, March 29, 2015 TimeTec 0 Comments

FingerTec has announced the capability to migrate the database from TCMSV2 (Fox Pro database) to Ingress (MySQL database) on 22nd July 2014. This migration helps to eliminate the trouble of having to recreate the clocking schedules and group duty roster all over again. The types of data which can be migrated are as below.

- User (user info, fingerprint and face templates)
- Department
- Schedule
- Group Duty Roster
- Leave types
- Remark
- Holiday
- Device
- Audit Data (Current year data only)
- System Setting(day type wages, Time format, hour format, date format, payroll cycle, first
  day of week, payroll start date, currency symbol)

However, if you encounter Thai language error after migration, do follow the steps below to rectify:

1)      Select Migration Wizard at Ingress software

2)      You will encounter the username appears as symbol instead of the correct Thai Language after migration

 3)      To rectify this, you will have to change the OS language to English language before proceeding
 4)      Go to Control Panel > Region and Language > Administrative > Change System Locale
5)      Select English Language according to your country and restart the computer.
6)      Once the system is restarted, launch the Ingress software and use the Migration Wizard to migrate the database from TCMSV2 to Ingress.

7)     You should be able to get the correct name in the User’s List.
8)      Once this is completed, you can change the system locale back to Thai Language and continue to use the software without error.
