Front Reception Time Clock

Here's a time clock deployment scenario that I came across recently. A customer wanted the front desk receptionist to be able to clock people in and out because sometimes staff would make it all the way to the front door before they realized they hadn't clocked out for lunch. They wanted the receptionist to be able to clock other employees in and out without having to mess around with a password, but they still wanted password protection turned on for the other employee time clocks scattered around the organization.

We created a new display group called 'Reception' that included all of the employees and turned off user passwords for just that display group. Virtual TimeClock '12 has a ton of flexibility when it comes to deploying time clocks so I rarely encounter scenarios that the time clock software is unable to handle.
