Personal Time Clocks

Virtual TimeClock has a number of flexible deployment options depending on your office workflow. You may want to deploy as a stand alone time clock kiosk, or network multiple time clocks together to take advantage of the real-time in/out board. I get asked a lot how to set up a personal time clock for each employee. In other words, management only wants the individual worker name to display on each employee's computer time clock. That's easy to do with display groups.

Setting up display groups for a personal time clock is a two-step process. First, create the new display group. Go to the Lists menu and choose Display Groups. Click the + button in the lower left corner of the window to create the new group. It's probably easiest to name the new group after the employee so it's easy to recognize later, like "Jeff's Time Clock". Make sure that same employee is the only one you have selected in the user list and save. Second, assign the display group to the individual employee's computer time clock. On Mac, go to the Virtual TimeClock Pro Client menu and choose Preferences. On Windows, go to the Edit menu and choose Preferences. Select the personal display group you created for the employee from the Display Group drop-down list. Now just repeat the process for your other employees.
