TimeForge Attendance allows employees to log into TimeForge using a biometric fingerprint scanner. These scanners are both faster and more secure than the standard username and password combination, and using the fingerprint scanner can eliminate buddy punching entirely.
Occasionally, an employee will need to change the fingerprint data that is on record – perhaps due to an accident, skin irritation, or some other reason. Follow these steps to easily change the employee’s fingerprint scan.
Register Employee Fingerprints
Navigate to the Employee List (in the Employees tab), and choose an employee to edit.
Scroll down toward the bottom of the staff member’s account, and you will see a “Register fingerprint data” button. Click on this button to begin registering this employee’s fingerprint.
Place the Employee’s Finger on the Scanner
Have the staff member place their finger (usually the middle finger, or ring finger is best) properly on the fingerprint scanner.
The light will flash momentarily, to show a successful fingerprint scan.
Rescan the Staff Finger if Necessary
In the case of a poor scan, you may be prompted to have the employee scan their finger again.
