Using the TimeForge Fingerprint Scanner

Using TimeForge Attendance, employees can clock in and out of the software using their username (most commonly an email address) and password.

TimeForge also offers fingerprint scanning as a more secure and faster method for employees to clock in and out.

TimeForge has partnered with M2SYS to provide fingerprint scanning – delivering fast employee identification and eliminating buddy punching while reducing payroll costs.

Setting up the TimeForge Fingerprint Scanner is simple, easy, and pain-free!

Enable the Fingerprint Scanner in the Location Settings

Enable the Fingerprint Scanner in the Location Settings

Before you can use your fingerprint scanner, you must first tell TimeForge that you will be using the M2SYS fingerprint scanner.

Sign into TimeForge, and go to the Location Settings (under the Setup tab). Change the above setting from “No” to “Yes“.

TimeForge will now show you additional options inside of each employee’s account.

Register Employee Fingerprints

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

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

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.

Successful Fingerprint Scan

Once a successful fingerprint scan is complete, the employee’s page will refresh, and you will see a screen similar to the above, indicating success for the fingerprint scan.

Require that Staff Members Use the Fingerprint Scanner

Require that Staff Members Use the Fingerprint Scanner

After all employees have had their fingerprints entered into the TimeForge system, you can require that clocking in at your location must take place from a specific IP address (your location’s address), and that staff members must use the Fingerprint scanner when clocking in or out.
