Field

Description

Use password

Select the check box if workers are required to use a PIN code for identification. If the check box is cleared, the Personnel number will serve as the worker ID.

Caution noteCaution

When using terminals for time and job registration, PIN codes should be enabled to prevent workers from registering using an incorrect worker ID. PIN codes are enabled as standard.

Remember to insert a PIN code for each worker in the Worker form, on the Time registration tab, in the Password field (Click Human resources > Common > Workers > Time registration workers.).

Use badge ID

Use worker badge ID as identification instead of the Personnel number.

Permanent teams

Select the check box to save pilot/assistant relations after clock-out registration for workers who registered either as assistants to other workers, or workers functioning as team pilots.

This enables Microsoft Dynamics AX to automatically re-create the teams the following work day. The first worker in the team who clocks in the following work day, becomes the pilot, and the other members of the team are automatically registered as assistants when they clock in.

The pilot makes all the registrations for the team during the day.

Job table synchronization mode

Select how to synchronize the Time and attendance job table with base data.

If you select Online, every new job will immediately be transferred to the job table. If you select Offline, the job table is updated periodically.

Registration error mode

Specify whether registration should be prohibited or auto corrected if an error in raw registrations is detected.

Get registration time from

Indicates where the registration time is taken from when a registration is made.

Caution noteCaution

We recommend that you set up Time and attendance to use Server time for registrations.

If you want to use Client time, remember to block access to computer system time and synchronize time on the client that uses a central server.

Refer to the operating system documentation for information about how to block access to system time or synchronize with a server.

All registrations have a timestamp. If this timestamp is wrong, data may be corrupted.

Bar code setup

Select the type of bar code to be printed on items such as worker badges and job cards.

Hour

Select the project journal that will be used for posting time on projects. Time is posted when registrations are transferred.

Fee

Select the project journal that will be used for posting project fees.

The project fee journal can be opened in the Job registration form and in the Electronic timecard form.

Item

Select the project journal that will be used for posting material consumption on projects.

The project inventory journal can be opened in the Job registration form and in the Electronic timecard form.

Post automatically

Select the check box to post hour journals automatically when registrations are transferred.

Cost category

Select the check box to calculate cost based on cost categories applied to the project categories or workers, instead of calculating project cost based on the pay transactions generated.

Select the basis for applying dimensions to project-related registrations.

Select the basis for applying dimensions to indirect activities registrations.
