Cycle: When an agreement consists of more than one shift, these shifts can alternate according to a certain cycle. WinTime 3.0 allows different cycles definitions: Daily, Weekly, Monthly and Alternative. The cycle refers to the period after which the schedule will repeat itself. Daily In this case, the daily agreement (or schedule) will be specified in the Daily Agreement window Please refer to the paragraph entitled Daily Agreement. Weekly shifts will alternate on a weekly basis Monthly shifts will alternate on a monthly basis Alternative A cycle is alternative if it connotes an alternation in the attendance schedule (e.g. an attendance schedule that will request a 2 days of attendance followed by 1 day of absence To define the alternation of an alternative cycle please refers to paragraph entitled Shift. Nbr Shifts: An agreement (i.e. company working schedule(s)) can consist of one or several shifts. In this field enter the number of shifts per day. These shifts can be fixed or rotational. Rotate Shift: This refers to employees rotation from one shift to the other. No Rotation The employee is bound by a fixed schedule with no alternation between the shifts.

This window allows the user to modify, delete or add transactions with the object of correcting the possible errors. The user has the possibility of selecting the transactions by branch, department, sub-department, employee, and between two dates. Once the selection is made, by clicking on the button OK, a window will open displaying for each employee the date, the type of transaction carried out (Entry or Exit) and the corresponding hour. We should note that the entry date could be different from the exit date in the case of an "Overnight" (e.g. the employee records an entry on the 08/02/2001 at 22 :00 and an exit on the 09/02/2001 at 07 :00.) The checkbox "Errors only" makes it possible to select (when it is checked) only the transactions including errors. Otherwise, all the transactions fulfilling the criteria of selection will be displayed with different colors: 1- The red color for the transactions including errors 2- The black color for the correct transactions, which were downloaded from the machine 3- The green color for the transactions resulting from an addition carried out manually by the user 4- The blue color for the downloaded transactions from the machine and were corrected manually by the user. Starting the initial selection window, if you check the Daily Correction box then you click on the Ok, you will be capable to control booking for only one day:

Starting the initial selection window you can also click on special.

The missing type and time will be extracted from the predefined schedule of the employee. (E.g. in a company where an employee generally works from 8 :00 to 16:00, when a transaction is omitted in the evening, the option "Special" allows the user to automatically correct the error by assigning to this employee an exit time at 16:00 according to his normal schedule.) Thus, you have the choice to automatically correct the transactions including errors by selecting all or part of the transactions and clicking the button "correct errors". The modifications carried out, if not saved, could be restored to the initial state by the button "Restore". The Special option can be used to correct access control errors (if the machines are used for attendance and access control at the same time) and can be used also to split overnight shifts (in case the employee spent more than 24 hours in the company, the system will automatically split the transaction for the two consecutive days).

Appendix A
Terminology
The following section includes the definition of the various terms used in this manual. Agreement: This refers to the agreement made between the company and the employee in terms of working schedule defined working days / working hours. Every employee will be related to one Agreement. Shift: Each employee agreement consists of one or more shifts. In general, companys/institutions total opening hours will be covered by a series of successive shifts. Split shifts: A split shift is when an employee has to fulfill more than one shift per day. In this case, employees shift is divided into two parts where the employee leaves the company between these two periods. For example, an employee who ensures 2 split shifts works from 09:00 until 14:00 and from 16:00 until 20:00. Flexible Agreement: A flexible agreement is a flexible working schedule where the employee should ensure a total number of hours and days of presence during a cycle (Week or Month) without having to abide to a well-defined fixed schedule. In this case, the system will take into consideration the total number of worked hours / days worked during a predefined period of time. Rigid Agreement: A rigid agreement is an agreement where the employee should abide by a fixed predefined working schedule. The matching and the variations between the actual attended schedule and the predefined agreed-on schedule will be noted and stored in employees account. Alternative Agreement: An alternative agreement is an agreement where employees work in shifts. In this case, employees have to follow specific schedules of definite presence and others of definite absence according to a given cycle. For example, an employee will have to work for 2 consecutive days then is on leave for 1 day, and so on. This agreement is typically applied in restaurants, hotels, and hospitals Daily Agreement: Used in the case of a daily changing schedule. General Policy: A general policy is where you define your companys policy related to absence & presence times (late & early entries, early departures & overtime, etc). You can define more than one policy in WinTime 3.0. Each agreement defined within the system is composed from 1 or several shifts and each shift is related to a general policy. Terminal: A terminal is a time clock reader where employees clock in or out every time they get in or out of the company. It could be connected to the computer by a serial connection, by modem for a remote site, or through a data-processing network using TCP/IP protocol.
