Exporting Program Logs

July 12, 2022

Virtual TimeClock's Program Logs are one of your most powerful tools for keeping track of important changes happening with your TimeClock. Program Logs can be used for anything from identifying network issues to tracking which administrator modified a timecard. Below are just a few of the things your TimeClock logs track:

  • Timecard modifications
  • Manual timecard entries
  • Records of every administrator login
  • Database backup history
  • TimeClock program errors
  • Network errors
  • ...and much more!

Our technical support staff members will occasionally request the program logs to better troubleshoot your TimeClock. This guide will show you how to obtain and send your logs to the technical support staff member assisting you.

Step 1: Determine Your Edition of Virtual TimeClock
