Adding a New Kiosk Location
Adding a new Kiosk Location
Within TimeKeeper, you can configure Kiosk Locations to link both your tablet and mobile clock-ins to.
Each location is assigned a name and an address, with an optional geo-boundary around your location. Mobile clock-ins within this green boundary will be automatically associated with this Kiosk Location - locations cannot be used to block off-site clocks in, to achieve this you would need to set up geofenced jobs instead. Your tablet kiosks will be linked to a Kiosk Location on initial setup, so every clock in through that tablet will be associated with that location.
TimeKeeper will then be able to tell you in real-time who has clocked in or out at each company location.
To set up a new location, simply perform the following:
Log in to the TimeKeeper portal
Select Locations in the Side Navigation bar
Click the 'New Location' button
Enter a Location Name, Address and Geofence Radius, and Press 'Save Location'
You will see a message confirming your location has been added and will see a list of all Locations listed in the system
How to link a kiosk to a default job
You may want your employees to clock into a kiosk, and have all those clock ins linked to one job, without the need to select a job from the dropdown.
To do this, first set the default job under 'Automatically link clock ins to this job:'
You can now turn off the 'Require job on clock in' setting under Account > Settings. This removes the dropdown field from the clock in screen, so employees no longer select a job on clock in - their clock in will automatically be linked to the default job you have set.
Please note if you leave the 'Require job on clock in' setting on, and they select a job which is different to the default, their clock in will be linked to their selected job.
