Checking the translator and connector of the Biometric TimeClock

A common issue with TimeClocks, Fingerprint Scanners, Standalone Clocks occurs when they stop importing information in TimeForge. The issue arises when either the TimeForge Translator or Connector have been turned off or disabled. Follow these easy steps to get your TimeClock working again.

Checking the Translator

Open the ISS45 Translator application

Look for the fireball icon with the T on your taskbar or in your icon tray. Double-click it to open the Translator program.

Checking the Translator

Click Tools, then select Services Status from the dropdown menu

The Translator program will pop up. Click Tools, then select Services Status. This will bring up a status window.

Checking the Translator

Make sure the Translator is running

If the Translator is running you will see Status: Running. You can now close the window.

If the Translator is stopped, you will see Status: Stopped. In this case, you will need to click the Start to start the translator service. Once the status changes to Running, you may close the window and proceed to the next step.

Checking the Translator

Sync the Translator

Once you have the Translator running, you will need to sync it to update the data in TimeForge. Click Tools again, then select Synchronize Now from the dropdown menu. When the sync completes, you may close the window.

Both the Translator and the Connector should now be properly syncing data with TimeForge, and your TimeClock should be operational.

heartWhat some of our clients have to say ...

We are one year into it now, well past being enamored with the newness. We are married to TimeForge. It's as essential to us now as any of our management tools today, and we very happy about that.- Steve @ Hermosa Cyclery
We really like the program so far. I know that it is geared towards restaurants, but we are a real estate company and we love it because it is inexpensive and it is so easy to use.- Nicole @ Exit Premier Realty
The Timeforge scheduling system has not only increased our efficiency tremendously; decreased the errors in what is normally an error prone environment; it has also saved us ten times what it costs us each month.- Michael @ Tiara Cafe
I would highly recommend TimeForge to anyone making work schedules. ... What used to take 1-2 hours, now takes 15 minutes. The reports section is comprehensive and useful.- Lawrence Payne @ Mid Pacific Country Club
I've been really pleased with this latest version of TimeForge. I'm really getting familiar with this program and its become a great time saver! Keep up the good work!- Loren @ Fresh Produce
