The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.




This check box is automatically selected if the worker has been enabled for time registration.

Calculation group

Select the calculation group that the worker is assigned to.

Profile group

Select the group to which the worker is associated. This group is used in automatic profile searches. All time registration workers are associated with a profile group. Different work time profiles are linked to a profile group. This makes it possible to automatically select a profile based on the worker’s clock-in time.
