TimeTec TA is a highly flexible cloud-based attendance management system, allowing users to export the attendance data into a template and format of their preference. The attendance export formats are divided into 2 general forms schema which are Detail and Summary.

DETAIL SCHEMA is to export day-by-day attendance records such as; In, Out, Break, Resume, OT, and Done clocking times of each user.

SUMMARY SCHEMA lets users summarize the clocking information of each user, within a user-defined date range, such as; Workday Present, Workday Hour, and Total Overtime.

The availability of the Export schemas, and the flexibility of their template customization, ease any kind of data integration to any third party payroll system. Users are able to set the position and the length of every field in export schemas to the one that best fits their systems.
