The Internet Time Clock punch screen will display your company name and the current date and time. Always begin by selecting a function, like “Start Day” or “Change Dept”. You will be prompted for the badge number and any other needed information. Using this free software, your employees may clock-in and out, change from one department to another, (if allowed), and enter tips, (if allowed).




Here are specific instructions for each function.


Clocking-in or Out

The employee selects either "Start Day", "End Day", "Start Lunch" or "End Lunch", then enters his badge number. The employee's name will display on the clock screen for one second.


Change Departments

An employee who has already clocked-in and whose employee record shows to be tracked for Charge-to information can change departments by clicking on "Change Dept", then enters his badge number.

Enter Tips

An employee whose record shows to be tracked for tips can enter tips amounts by clicking on "Enter Tips", then enters his badge number. The employee enters the amount of tips earned. An employee can make multiple entries of tips over a single day. They will show on his time card as one totaled entry for the entire day.


Step 4 - Collect the Punches


You may collect the punches as frequently as you like. All employee punches within the past 30 days will be included in the capture. To ensure the most current information be included in your report, run this program before running the report.



Step 5 - Run Reports 


Once you have collected employee punches you can run the report. The report will be current as of the last time punches were collected. Select "Reports" from the Main Menu, then click on “Employee Punches Sorted into Name and Date Sequence”.
