Jane Doe's first punch this morning was at 7:30 am. Using the settings above, PayClock defines Jane's open shift to start at 7:30 am and is expected to end by 9:30 pm. An exception will be generated if Jane punches out any time after 9:30 pm, which would be greater than 14 hours from her first punch of 7:30am.

Pay Class
The Pay Class button of the Setup tab on the ribbon bar allows you set up and maintain your companies pay policies for handling payroll. You can configure the pay policies your company uses, such as your pay period, overtime, break and other advanced pay class features.

Here are some reasons you would have more than one pay class. Different pay period types, i.e. one group of employees are on a weekly pay period and another group of employees are on a bi-weekly pay period. Same pay period types but pay periods start at different times, i.e. one group of employees are on a weekly pay period that starts on Wednesday and another group of employees are on a weekly pay period that starts on Monday. Different overtime rules, i.e. one group of employees accumulate weekly overtime after 40 hours per week and another group of employees accumulate weekly overtime after 37 hours and 30 minutes per week.

Caution! You should only use multiple pay classes when necessary as identified above. You cant edit timecards or report or export data across multiple pay classes, you can only edit timecards, report or export data on one pay class at a time.

Helpful Hint o

When should I change the Maximum Work Day Length default setting of 14 hours?
This setting should only be changed from the default of 14 hours if employees are expected to work more than 14 hours in a day. You can change the Maximum Work Day Length in the Setup tab | Pay Class button | Advanced tab. Changing this setting will apply to all employees, if you need to override this setting for a single employee do so at the Setup tab | Employees button | Advanced tab or adjust the Maximum Work Day Length by day in the timecard. Note: Normally, you should leave this setting at its default of 14:00 hours.

Should I change the Maximum Hours Out to Start a New Shift setting?
No, typically you should leave this parameter at the default setting of 3:00 hours. This setting allows employees who are working split shifts or work for a few hours and then leave but come back later and work another shift on the same

PayClock User's Guide

day to accumulate time without you having to make adjustments in the timecard. The default for this setting is 3:00 hours which means if an employee punches In and works for a period of time and then punches Out to leave and remains punched Out for at least 3 hours and then on the same day comes back to work and punches In, PayClock will automatically extend the work day by another 14 hours.

Should I change the Beginning of Day option?


No, typically you should leave this parameter at the default setting of 12:00am. PayClock by default starts the beginning of the day at 12:00am. When the employees first punch of the day is registered, it will be applied to the day on which the punch happened. For example if the employees first punch on Monday was 6:00am it will display in the timecard as 6:00am Monday. Changing the beginning of day parameter causes the day to shift ahead from the 12:00am default point. For example the beginning of day is set to 9:00am, a 6:00am punch is registered on Monday, the punch will be calculated as a Sunday punch because the day has been shifted ahead and Monday doesnt actually start until 9:00am.

When should I enable the Apply Hours to Date of Out Punch setting?
If your company payroll policy requires that the accumulated time be applied to the day where the out punch falls you should enable this option. Typically this setting would only be used when an employee is working a shift that crosses midnight and you want the total hours to be accumulated on the day of the out punch. For example, you would enable this option if you have a night shift which starts at 11:00pm and ends at 7:30am. The pay period starts on Monday and you want the Sunday night shift to calculate as Monday which is actually the first shift of the pay period.

Why would I select the Calculate Weekly OT by Total Hours option?


Select this option if you want PayClock to calculate overtime based on all hours rather than regular hours. Note: If you chose the Calculate OT by Pay Period box in the Overtime tab, this label changes to Calculate Period OT by Total Hours. At the Setup tab | Pay Classes button | Advanced tab, you can set PayClock to calculate overtime by total or regular hours. PayClock calculates overtime by regular hours by default. Select 'Calculate Weekly OT by Total Hours' if you want to calculate overtime by total hours instead. This option applies only if you select daily and weekly or pay period overtime at the Setup | Pay Class button | Overtime tab. Example where overtime starts after 8 hr/day and 40 hr/week: A person works Mon-Thurs 10 hours each day, totaling 32 regular and 8 overtime hours. He then works 10 hours Fri. Using the default 'Regular Hours' method, the employee must work 8 hours on Fri before he reaches weekly overtime. So, his week ends with 40 regular and 10 overtime hours. Using the 'Total Hours' method, the employee reaches 40 weekly total hours after Thurs. So, any time worked on Fri is overtime. His week ends with 32 regular and 18 overtime hours.

Breaks
Breaks can be punched, automatically deducted or a combination of both, they can also be unpaid or paid. Breaks are applied to shifts, for example, you have a shift that starts at 7:30am and ends at 4:00pm with a 30 minute punched unpaid break that can be taken between 11:30am and 2:00pm. After defining the breaks, assign them to shifts. Employees punch for this break - Select this option to define a punched break for the shift. Break window: (select to start break after a specific time or a duration of hours) Time of Day - Select this option if you wish to set an actual time window for when the punched break can be started. For example the employee can punch out to start their break from 11:30am to 2:00pm. Duration - Select this option if you wish to set a time duration window for when the punched break can be started. For example the employee can punch out to start their break between 4:00 and 6:00 hours after the start of the shift. At The break may be started between __:__am/pm and __:__am/pm, enter the earliest and latest time a person can punch out for a break. Note: This setting will display if Time is selected for the Break window option. At The break may be started between __:__ and __:__ (Hrs:Mins) after start of shift., enter the window of time that the break can be started, i.e. 4:00 hours and 6:00 hours. Note: This setting will display if Duration is selected for the Break window option At The break is normally __:__ long but may be up to __:__ (Hrs:Mins) long., enter the ideal length of the break for the first value and the maximum length of the break for the second value. Note: If the maximum length which is the second field is exceeded the punches will not be considered as break punches but as normal In and Out punches. For example, a paid break is defined as between 30 minutes (the ideal break length) and 45 minutes (the maximum length). An employee takes 30 minutes for the break; the entire 30 minutes will be paid because the ideal break length was not exceeded. If the employee takes 45 minutes, 30 minutes will be paid and 15 minutes will be docked because they went over the ideal break of 30 minutes. If the employee takes 1 hour, they will be docked the entire 1 hour because they went over the maximum length of 45 minutes which cancelled the break. At This break is paid, select this option if you do not want to deduct time for the break. Then entire duration set for the Length will be paid.

What is a combined break and how does it work?


A combined break is used when you allow your employees to add together multiple punched breaks and take them all at once. For example, a company has a rule that says if the employee is waiting on customers when their normal break time arrives they should wait to take the break. At a time when they are not busy they can combine their 15 minute break with their 30 minute meal break and take a total of 45 minutes. The PayClock software will adjust the amount deducted for the punched break(s) based on the total amount allowed for the breaks. For example if the employee is only punched out 45 minutes for the combined breaks but can take up to 60 minutes, then PayClock will adjust the amount deducted for the combined breaks to 60 minutes. Combined Break Examples The company has 3 breaks and allows these breaks to be combined if needed. The morning break is 15 minutes, punched, unpaid and can typically be started between 9:00am and 9:30am. The lunch break is 30 minutes, punched, unpaid and can typically be started between 12:00pm and 2:00pm. The afternoon break is 15 minutes, punched, unpaid and can typically be started between 3:00pm and 3:30pm. The 3 breaks are assigned to a 8:00am to 5:00pm shift and the Allow Combined Breaks option is selected. The 8:00am to 5:00pm shift is assigned to an employee Monday through Friday. Example 1 The employee punches in on Monday at 8:00am; the morning is very busy so the employee doesnt take the morning break. The employee punches out to take their lunch break at 12:00pm, they combine their morning break amount with the lunch break amount and take 45 minutes, punching In from the lunch break at 12:45pm. The employee punches out to take their afternoon break at 3:15pm and then back In at 3:30pm. The employee has taken a total of 60 minutes for the combined breaks; PayClock doesnt adjust the time taken for the combined breaks. Example 2 The employee punches in on Tuesday at 8:00am; the morning is very busy so the employee doesnt take the morning break. The employee punches out to take their lunch break at 12:00pm, they combine their morning break amount with the lunch break amount and take 40 minutes, punching In from the lunch break at 12:40pm. The employee punches out to take their afternoon break at 3:15pm and then back In at 3:30pm. The employee has taken a total of 55 minutes for the combined breaks, PayClock adjust the time taken for the combined breaks to 60 minutes. Example 3 The employee punches in on Wednesday at 8:00am; the morning is very busy so the employee doesnt take the morning break. The afternoon is expected to be very busy also. The employee punches out to take their lunch break at 12:00pm, and because the afternoon is expected to be busy they combine their morning and afternoon break amount with the lunch break amount and take 60 minutes, punching In from the lunch break at 1:00pm.

Shifts
Shifts identify when an employee is expected to punch In or Out and how to calculate the punches. For each shift rule, you can define the start and end of the shift as well as the break(s) associated with the shift. For example, you have a shift that starts at 7:30am and ends at 4:00pm with a 30 minute punched break. After defining the shift rules you then can assign them to the employees. Shifts also allow you to use revision zones and lockout zones if you wish.

Shift Type
This section allows you to define the parameters around the start and end of the shift. Shift with In and Out revision - Select this option if you want to use both the In and Out revision zones. Shift with no revisions - Select this option if you do not want to use In and Out revision zones. Punches will calculate based on the rounding rule set up at the Pay Class - Advanced tab. Shift with In revision - Select this option if you only want to use an In revision zone. Shift with Out revision - Select this option if you only want to use an Out revision zone. Flexible Shift - Selecting this option allows you to define the length of the shift. The first punch of the day will start the shift; the length will define when the shift will end.

In and Out Revision Examples Shift with In and Out revision set up. In Revision The In Revision setting will round or adjust punches forward to the shift start time. The shifts In Time or start is set to 8:00am. The shifts Arrive Early or In Revision zone is set at 7:30am. Tom punches In at 7:38am. The punch will adjust forward to 8:00am which is the start of the shift. Out Revision The Out Revision setting will round or adjust punches back to the shift end time. The shifts Out Time or end is set to 5:00pm. The shifts Leave Late or Out Revision zone is set to 5:30pm. Tom punches Out at 5:08pm. The punch will adjust back to 5:00pm which is the end of the shift. Shift without In and Out revision set up. The shifts In Time or start is set to 8:00am. Tom punches In at 7:38am. The punch will calculate based on the rounding defined in the Pay Class - Advanced tab. The shifts Out Time or end is set to 5:00pm. Tom punches Out at 5:08pm. The punch will calculate based on the rounding defined in the Pay Class - Advanced tab.

Enroll Employees at the TS100 Terminal


The Finger Template Management Wizard is used to enroll, re-enroll and maintain employees in the TS100 terminal. Employees must have at least one finger enrolled to use the TS100 terminal. Proper finger placement is critical to ensure reliable punches. The best method of finger placement is to roll your finger flat onto the sensor, as shown below. Apply gentle pressure and hold your finger on the sensor window until you see the sensors light blink, then lift your finger.

Finger Enrollment Guidelines


The TS100 uses a highly robust sensing technology to take digital images of your fingerprints. However, there are instances in which the TS100 may have some difficulties reading your fingerprints. Here are some things you can do to avoid this situation. The TS100 reads the patterns of ridges and valleys on the portion of the finger between the tip and the first bend in the finger. Do not simply put the tip of the finger on the sensor and hope the TS100 will detect it. Do not turn the finger to the right or left, or place it upside down. Use the finger guide on the TS100 to judge the correct finger placement. Always place the finger flat and comfortably resting entirely on the sensor surface. Sometimes twisting the finger slightly or moving it forward and back slightly can trigger the TS100 to scan the finger. Be comfortable; do not try to use a finger that causes the hand to be at an uncommon angle. Use the finger that is most convenient and most comfortable. During enrollment, the employee should do his best to provide consistent finger placement: THIS IS CRITICAL. Good enrollment enables the TS100 to provide the best matching possible during daily use, and thus, the enrollment process is one of the most important steps. The TS100 may have difficulty reading the finger if the employee has dry skin. The employee can try touching his finger to his forehead or face and placing his finger on the TS100. The oils will help the TS100 read the ridges and valleys of the fingerprint. The TS100 may have difficulty reading the finger if the employee has very moist skin or tends to perspire a lot. The employee should clean his finger and place his finger on the TS100 again.

Global Scheduling

The Scheduling tab presents a summary or snapshot of the estimated labor coverage in hours and dollars on a calendar. In addition the Scheduling tab is used to apply shifts to groups of employees, allowing shift assignments in mass rather than having to assign shifts to employees individually. These shift assignments will make up the employees work schedule. You define the employees work schedule in the calendar and assign shifts by date. A separate labor coverage chart is also available to view which allows for verifying there is enough labor coverage but not too much for a work day. To make global assignments of shifts simply press the Go to Assign Shifts View button. The calendar workspace will open allowing shift assignments by groups of employees. To open the labor coverage summary page again simply press the Return to Summary View button.

How do I view the labor coverage chart?


Having enough but not too much labor coverage for a work day is very important. The shift coverage chart allows a quick glance to determine if the scheduling you have in place will provide the needed coverage for the selected single date. This example shows that the Shipping department will have coverage from 7:30am until 5:00pm with full coverage from 8:00am until 4:30pm which are the peak hours for that department. The Receiving department will have coverage from 7:00am until 5:30pm with full coverage from 8:30am until 4:00pm which are the peak hours for that department.

Note about Direct Sunlight - It is not recommended to have the terminal mounted in a location where it is exposed to direct sunlight. This could be troublesome during the registration process. Step 2: After selecting the appropriate installation site, use the terminal to determine the appropriate height. Have the shortest employee stand in from of the terminal. Hold the terminal on the wall so that this employee can comfortably center their face in the LCD display window. Mark the height of the terminal on the wall. Note: Taller employees can easily adjust their stance to center their face in the LCD display window.

With the PC600 terminal, employees can use a badge or PIN using the touch-panel to punch in and out, view messages or benefit time balances its that simple. The PayClock software and PC600 terminals are the perfect solution for businesses that want to track employee time and automate payroll. The PC600 terminal connects to your network for communications with the time and attendance software. The terminal utilizes Windows CE and a touch-panel display for inputting data by employees, supervisors or administrators.

When operating with Live Sync enabled (online mode), communications with the pc are in real-time. For example when an employee punches at the PC600 it is immediately added to the database and is available for viewing or editing. Another example is if the employee does an inquiry, the PC600 will initiate communications with the database and retrieve the inquiry information and display it on the screen. When operating with Live Sync disabled (offline mode), all transactions are held in the terminals memory until the terminal is polled, then the data will be added to the database The PC600 terminal offers a large color LCD touch-panel that displays employee information along with an audio prompt. Upon a successful transaction live sync enabled, the display will show the employees name, total worked time, In / Out status and an audio/text prompt.

Recommended Installation Tools

Install the PC600 Terminal


Step 1: Select a site to install your PC600 terminal that will be convenient to employees clocking in and out. When deciding where the terminal will be installed, keep in mind that an 115vAC power outlet should be within 6 feet of the mounting location as well as a connection to the network (LAN). Note: It is recommended to install and mount the PC600 terminal before installing the PayClock software. With the PC600 terminal powered up and connected to the network (LAN), the software will search for it on the network and automatically configure the terminal.

FaceIN and PC600 Manuals 263

Step 2: After selecting the appropriate installation site, use masking tape to hold the included Mounting Template onto the wall. Drill holes using the template as a guide. Note: the bottom of the terminal should be about 45 inches from the floor.

Remove the Template from the wall and install the included mounting screws. Install the three larger screws, leaving approximately 3/16 inch of the screws exposed. Do not tighten all the way. Retain the smaller screw for later. Note: For sheetrock walls, drill a 3/16 diameter hole through each of the four screw locations; each approx 1-1/2 deep. Install the plastic anchors included in the mounting screw packet. Step 3: Plug the RJ45 network cable into the Ethernet port and the Power Adapter plug into the Power Adapter port which is located in the compartment on the back of the terminal.

Step 4: Insert the small L-shaped security bracket into the slot at the bottom-rear of the PC600, so that the tab with the hole points downward, away from the keyhole slot that can be seen immediately above. Hang the terminal on the wall, aligning the three keyholes on the rear of the enclosure with the three protruding screw heads, and then pressing downward on the terminal housing until it lowers onto the screws. Screw the small Screw into the hole of the tab from the small L-shaped bracket at the bottom of the enclosure. This will fasten the PC600 to the wall, and keep it from being easily removed. When finished, plug the power adapter into an AC wall outlet.

To punch, move the badge over the badge reader symbol below the illuminated oval target area on the front of the PC600.

When the badge is in close proximity to the PC600, a confirmation beep will sound, a text message will appear, a custom audio message may be played, and the oval target area will turn either green or red indicating a good or bad transaction. If you scan a badge that has not yet been assigned to a specific employee in PayClock, the terminal will display an error message. Notice: The PC600 utilizes an internal antenna to read the employee badges. Make sure these badges are stored at least 6 away from the PC600 when not in use to avoid accidental badge reads.

Beginning of Day
PayClock by default starts the beginning of the day at 12:00am. When the employees first punch of the day is registered, it will be applied to the day on which the punch happened. For example if the employees first punch on Monday was 6:00am it will display in the timecard as 6:00am Monday. Changing the beginning of day parameter causes the day to shift ahead from the 12:00am default point. For example the beginning of day is set to 9:00am, a 6:00am punch is registered on Monday, the punch will be calculated as a Sunday punch because the day has been shifted ahead and Monday doesnt actually start until 9:00am

Break Length
This setting determines how long the employee is expected to take for their break. The break can either be punched or auto-deducted.

Calculate Weekly OT by Total Hours


At the Setup tab | Pay Class button | Advanced tab, you can set PayClock to calculate overtime by total or regular hours. PayClock calculates overtime by regular hours by default. Select 'Calculate Weekly OT by Total Hours' if you want to calculate overtime by total hours instead. This option applies only if you select daily and weekly or pay period overtime at the Setup | Pay Class button | Overtime tab. Example where overtime starts after 8 hr/day and 40 hr/week: A person works Mon-Thurs 10 hours each day, totaling 32 regular and 8 overtime hours. He then works 10 hours Fri. Using the default 'Regular Hours' method, the employee must work 8 hours on Fri before he reaches weekly overtime. So, his week ends with 40 regular and 10 overtime hours. Using the 'Total Hours' method, the employee reaches 40 weekly total hours after Thurs. So, any time worked on Fri is overtime. His week ends with 32 regular and 18 overtime hours.

Counts toward Weekly Overtime


Choose this option if your company wants certain non-work time to count toward overtime. Example: Your company allows sick time to count towards overtime. So, if a person worked 8 hours for 3 days, 10 hours for 1 day and called in sick 1 day using 8 hours of Sick time, the person would have a total of 42 hours with 2 of those hours being overtime, although the person only worked 34 hours. Note: If non-worked time is applied at the end of the week it is possible that the worked hours at the beginning of the week will become overtime. Non-work time can count toward overtime but can never be overtime. Example: Sally worked 10 hours on Monday but was out sick Tuesday thru Friday. Payroll applied 32 hours of sick time; this added to the 10 hours Sally worked brought her total for the week to 42 hours. She was paid 8 hours regular time, 2 hours overtime and 32 hours sick time.

Custom Data Fields


Custom Data fields are data fields that PayClock allows the user to define. These fields can be used to store information not available in PayClock, for example you may want to store some HR information such as Last Review Date. After defining the name of the custom fields, enter the associated data in the Personal tab of the Employee Master for each employee. The data is then available on the Employee Custom Field report. Note: The Custom Fields that are defined are global and will be available for all employees.

Daily OT Overrides Level 1 Weekly OT


This option allows you to continue paying daily overtime on a day when weekly overtime is reached. Example: You pay OT1 after 8 hours a day and after 40 hours a week, you also pay OT2 after 12 hours a day. An employee needs 8 hours to reach the 40 hour weekly overtime. He works 13 hours the day the 40 hours are reached. If the Daily OT Overrides Level 1 Weekly OT option is selected this is how the employee will be paid: 8 of the hours will be paid as Regular, 4 hours will be paid as OT1 and 1 hour will be paid as OT2. If the Daily OT Overrides Level 1 Weekly OT option is not selected this is how the employee will be paid: 8 of the hours will be paid as Regular and 5 hours will be paid as OT1.

Department Transfer
A department transfer is when an employee stops working in one department and then begins working in another department. The reason for a transfer is you may want to track the time that an employee works in each department for labor reporting or maybe wage differentials.

Employee List
The employee list appears below the ribbon bar when the Timecards tab is selected. Along with the list of employees, you will see the pay period summary data for each employee. This list is used to select employees and pay periods, which then allows you to edit their employee information or timecard data. To edit employee information, right click on the employee in the list and then select Edit this Employee from the pop-up menu. To open an employees timecard, click on the employee in the list and their timecard will open.

Extended Break Length


The extended break amount is used to determine the longest time an employee can be punched out for a break. Add the extended break amount to the break length to get the longest time an employee can be punched out and the software still consider the punches to be break punches. Note: Rounding has to be configured at the Setup tab | Pay Class button | Advanced tab in order for the Extended Break Amount Option to take effect. Example: Break Length = 30 minutes Extended Break Amount = 15 minutes The maximum time that an employee can be punched for a break is 45 minutes (30 mins + 15 mins). If an employee comes back from break 1 minute late (or later up to 15 minutes), the software still understands that employee is returning from break. If the employee came back 16 minutes or more late the software would not consider it a break and would calculate the punches as normal In / Out punches. This is especially important if you have set up both a punched break and an autodeduct break. In that case if the employee came back 16 or more minutes late from break the software would deduct twice. Once for the punched time away, and then also for the auto deduct, since the software didnt consider the punches as a punched break.

Filter
A filter helps you to narrow down a list by showing only the items you want to see. For example, if you filter your list of employees by Shipping, your list will only show the employees assigned to the Shipping department.

Flexible Shift
A flexible shift starts with the employees first punch of the day; the duration is defined by the Shift Length setting. A Flexible shift can be configured on the Shift Properties tab of the Shifts button at the Setup tab of the ribbon bar. Example: A flexible shift was created and the shift length is set to 9 hours. A one hour punched break was assigned to the flexible shift. Jane Doe works a flex-time schedule which allows her to start work at different times each morning. The 9 hour flexible schedule was assigned to Jane Doe.

292 Glossary of Terms

PayClock User's Guide

Jane Does first punch on Monday was at 7:30am, her shift is expected to end at 4:30pm. The first punch of 7:30am starts the shift and the shift length is 9 hours which sets the end of the shift to 4:30pm. Jane Does first punch on Tuesday was at 10:00am, her shift is expected to end at 7:00pm. The first punch of 10:00am starts the shift and the shift length is 9 hours which sets the end of the shift to 7:00pm.

Guaranteed Time
This option is used to give a person credit for more hours than actually worked. Example: You have a policy at your company that if an employee works at least 7 hours they are paid for 8 hours. By setting up a guaranteed minimum, the workers will be paid for 8 hours even though they only worked for 7 hours. However, if the workers are worked for 9 hours, they will be paid for the 9 hours that they worked. In this example, you would have 7 Worked Hours to Qualify and 8 Minimum Paid Hours.

Inactive Employee
Inactive employees are employees you want to keep in the PayClock system but you dont want there badge to be active at the terminal. For example, you might want to make an employee inactive when she goes on maternity leave or when a seasonal worker is off-season. You cannot reassign an inactive employees badge. You can only reuse a badge number if you mark the employee as Terminated. Inactive employees stay in the system, but cannot punch the terminal. You can still report and export on inactive employees. Note: After making an employee inactive, make sure you update the terminal, if you dont the badge will still be accepted by the terminal.

Left Early Exception


PayClock flags this exception by looking for an Out punch that falls before the shifts Out Time. Note: This exception requires that shifts be assigned to employees.

Left Late Exception


PayClock flags this exception by looking for an Out punch that falls after the shifts Out Time. Note: This exception requires that shifts be assigned to employees.

Live Sync
The PC600 can operate in online or offline mode. When operating in online or live sync mode, communications with the pc are in real-time. For example when an employee punches at the PC600 it is immediately added to the database and is available for viewing or editing. Another example is the PC600 will update itself if an edit is made to an employee in PayClock such as a name change. When operating in offline mode, all communications with the PC600 have to be initiated from the PayClock software, such as polling or updating.

Long Break Exception


PayClock flags this exception when an employee exceeds their break length causing the In from break punch to fall into the extended break period.

Maximum Hours Out to Start a New Shift


This setting allows the PayClock software to automatically start a new shift for an employee if the qualifier is met. PayClock defaults this setting to 3 hours. This means if an employee is punched out for 3 hours or more the software will

PayClock User's Guide

Glossary of Terms 293

assume that a new shift will be started. Note: If the new shift is started within the same day all of the punches will be calculated on the day of the first In punch. Example: Sams first In punch was on Monday at 7:30am. He worked a normal shift and punch Out at 4:00pm. Sam was asked to come back and work the night shift. When Sam punched In for the night shift at 8:00pm the software knew that a new shift was starting because 3 hours had elapsed since the last out punch. The Maximum Hours Out to Start a New Shift rule was activated and the day was extended by an additional 14 hours. Both shifts were calculated and the employee had a total of 16 hours for Monday. Note: If the new shift is started after midnight the punches will be calculated on the day of the punches. When should I set the Maximum Hours Out to Start a New Shift option? This setting is typically used if you have employees that may work a double shift. The software will automatically detect if the workday needs to be extended so that the employee punches will be calculated. Note: You would want to set the option to an amount of time that will not conflict with any punched breaks.

Maximum Work Day Length


This setting determines the longest amount of time a person is expected to work in 1 day. PayClock defaults this setting to 14 hours. An exception is generated if an employee punches out more than 14 hours after his first punch of the day. You can change the Maximum Work Day Length in the Setup tab | Pay Class button | Advanced tab which will apply to all employees or you can override this setting for a single employee by changing the employees Maximum Work Day Length in the Setup tab | Employees button | Schedules tab or adjust the Maximum Work Day Length by day in the timecard. Note: Normally, you should leave this setting at its default of 14:00 hours. Example: Maximum Work Day Length is set to 14 hours. Sam punches In at 7:00 am in the morning. Sam would normally work and punch out any time up to 9:00 pm. Say Sam punched Out at 10:30 pm. This punch will flag an exception because it was outside of the maximum day.

Missed Break Exception


PayClock flags a Missed Break exception when it does not find any punches that fall within the defined period for a break.

Missed Break In Registration Exception


PayClock flags this exception when the In from break punch occurs after the defined break.

Missed Break Out Registration Exception


PayClock flags a Missed Break Out Registration exception when the Out for break punch occurs to early or if no punches occurred for the defined break.

Missed In Exception
PayClock flags this exception by looking for a missing In punch.

294 Glossary of Terms

PayClock User's Guide

Missing Registration Exception


PayClock flags this exception by looking for an odd number of registrations/punches. If there are an odd number of punches, then PayClock assumes a registration is missing.

Off Shift
When an employee does not come in to work, he is considered "off" for the day. Note: Assign an Off schedule to the day(s) an employee is not scheduled to work.

Open Shift
An open shift allows PayClock to define the start and end of the work day for everyone in a pay class. Employees have an open shift if they do not have a shift rule assigned. An employee's open shift starts with his/her first punch of the day. The open shift settings are configured on the Advanced tab of the Pay Class button at the Setup tab of the ribbon bar. Example: The beginning of day setting is 12:00 midnight and the maximum work day length is set to 14 hours. Jane Does first punch this morning was at 7:30am. Using the settings above, PayClock defines Janes open shift to start at 7:30am and end by 9:30pm. So, Jane can punch any time today until 9:30pm, which is 14 hours after her first punch of 7:30am without an exception being generated. Note: PayClock allows you to override the starting time of the open shift. This allows PayClock to start the day before midnight for the open shift.

Pay Code
Pay Codes are accumulators or categories that collect either time or dollar amounts. You can change the pay rates or set non-work hours to count toward overtime.

Pay Period Type


Your pay period defines the duration of the pay cycle length. Weekly - 7-day length. You choose when the current pay period begins. Bi-Weekly - 14-day length. You choose when the current pay period begins. Semi-Monthly - twice per month. You choose when the current and next pay period begins. Monthly - once per month. You choose when the current pay period begins. Custom - allows users to define their own pay period length. You choose when the current pay period begins and ends and also when the next pay period ends. For example, your current pay period might start on the 1st and end on the 18th and your next pay period will start on the 19th and end on the 31st. Each time you close a custom pay period you will be prompted to set the date that the "new" next pay period will end.

Rate Modifier
PayClock uses the rate modifier to multiply an employees wages. For example, if overtime is paid at time and half, set the overtime modifier to 1.50 (1 and times the base pay).

Registration
A punch at the clock or a punch added from the software.

Ribbon Bar
The PayClock Ribbon Bar has replaced the typical menus and toolbars. This new bar, which is located at the top of the screen, allows PayClock to present the functions you need on a set of organized tabs. The tabs are; Start Page, Timecards, Scheduling, Reports, Terminal Manager and Setup.

Right Mouse Click Shift Assignments


When you assign a shift to a date or day you have two methods that can be used, drag -n- drop or a right click of the mouse. Right Click Method - Select a date or day and right click the mouse, this menu will open.

Add Shift - This menu item allows you to select a shift from the available list to assign to the selected date(s) or day(s). Selecting New will allow you to create an on-the-fly shift that will be used once for that one date or day for that one employee. Delete Shift - This menu item allows you to remove the shift assignment from the selected date(s) or day(s). Add Non-Work Time - This menu item allows you to post non-work time to the selected date(s) or day(s). Make Recurring - This menu item allows you to set a schedule assignment to recur for the selected day every week. For example, if you have a shift assigned on Wednesday August 18 and the Make Recurring option is selected, the shift will be assigned to every Wednesday not the 18th of every month. Note: The recurrence is base on the DAY not the date. Remove Recurrence - Select this menu item to cancel the recurrence of the selected shift assignment. View All - This menu item will display a coverage chart for all employees for the selected single date or single day. This will allow you to determine if you have too much or not enough labor coverage for the selected single date or single day.

Rounding
Rounding adjusts a punch to an even increment of time. With rounding, there must be a setting that triggers the punch to adjust forward or backward - this is the break point. Example: 1/4 Hour - 7 min. break point punch rounding is selected. (15 min. round with 7 min. breakpoint) An employee punches at 8:09, since :09 is after the 7-minute break point, the punch rounds to 8:15. An employee punches at 8:06, since :06 is before the 7-minute break point, the punch rounds to 8:00.

296 Glossary of Terms

PayClock User's Guide

An employee punches at 8:07, since :07 is at the 7-minute break point, the punch rounds to 8:15.

Shift
A shift rule contains the settings that identify a work day for employees. In PayClock a shift rule allows you to define the start and end of the work day as well as any breaks or meals that would be taken. Note: If you dont assign shift rules to employees they will be on an open shift.

Terminated Employee
Terminated employees are employees you want to keep in the PayClock system but you want to reuse their badge for another employee, typically a terminated employee will not be returning to work. Terminated employees stay in the system, but cannot punch the terminal, their badge number will be reset to 0 (zero). You can still report and export on terminated employees. Note: After making an employee terminated, make sure you update the terminal, if you dont the badge will still be accepted by the terminal.

User
A user is a person who logs in and accesses the PayClock software. After logging in the user can only access the parts and functions of the software that were set up for the user profile assigned to their user account. The user account and access rights are set up by the PayClock administrator.

User Profile
A user profile defines which sections or programs a user is authorized to use in PayClock. There are 2 default user access profiles; Administrator and Limited.

Verification Method
Typically for a normal employee you would select Face recognition, for a temporary employee select Card recognition, for higher security select either Pin and Face or Card and Face recognition.

Worked Hours to Qualify (Auto Deduct)


This setting tells the PayClock software when to automatically deduct the break length from the daily total. If this qualifier is not met, no automatic deduction will take place. To determine the worked hours to qualify setting, subtract the amount of time to automatically deduct from the amount of time employees are required to be on the clock. Example 1 If employees must be on the clock 6 hours before a 30 minute break is automatically deducted, then set worked hours to qualify to 5 hours and set length to 00:30 minutes. Note: No break will be deducted if an employee is not on the clock for at least 6 hours. Example 2 : Worked hours to qualify are 8:00 and the Length is 0:30 John punched in at 8:00am and out at 4:00pm which gives a duration of 8 hours, when the 30 minutes is subtracted he has 7hrs 30 minutes which doesnt meet the 8 hour qualifier so no automatic break is deducted. John punched in at 7:30am and out at 4:00pm which gives a duration of 8 hours and 30 minutes, when the 30 minutes is subtracted he has 8 hours which meets the qualifier so the 30 minute automatic break is deducted.
