Viewing Time Clock User Passwords

The ability to view user passwords was removed in Virtual TimeClock ‘12 because we had a number of educational and governmental agencies that were failing security audits because of it. We’ve found that employees who use the time clock multiple times each day rarely forget their password. If they do, an admin user just needs to create a new one for them.

Here's a thought if you really want to store viewable user passwords in your employee time clock software. Use the Notes panel of the user record. Then if someone forgets their password, just go to Configure, then Users and look at the user notes. Although you can print the user notes if you have administrative access to user configuration, they don't appear on any program reports.
