TimeForge uses web services to communicate with other third party applications. Web services are like a modern Comma Separated Value (CSV) files, and they allow TimeForge to communicate with other applications, such as Point of Sale systems, accounting products (such as Quickbooks), and stand alone time clocks.
To ensure that no one else can modify your data by using the TimeForge web services, you will need to create a Web Service username and password. We’ve made sure that this is easy to do, so you can quickly use the power of TimeForge with your 3rd party application.
First Navigate to the Settings Page for your Location or Store
Locate the settings for your store / location.
Enable TimeForge Integration
1. Make sure that the setting for “Would you like to enable TimeForge integration with another program?” is set to “Yes“.
2. Choose an appropriate username and password for the web service. This is specific to your location / store, and won’t be needed again. We recommend that you choose as long of a username and password as possible.
3. TimeForge will automatically send an email to managers if it cannot synchronize. This heartbeat functionality will ensure that TimeForge and 3rd party applications are running properly at your business.
By default, TimeForge permissions are controlled by the Connector/Translator or other 3rd party software.

That’s it … you are done!
