Getting Started
Before Getting Started
Before using timeQplus for the first time, you may find it helpful to have your company’s pay period and
time and attendance policies handy.
Here is a list of configuration settings you will review and modify as needed:
1. Adjust the following items located in the Setup section as desired:
•
Current Pay Period Start Date
•
Pay Period Length
•
Pay Period Start Date
•
Holiday pay policies
•
Time card approval policies
•
Date Format
•
Time Totals Format
2. For each shift used, adjust the following items located in the Shifts and Lunches section as
desired:
•
Set up shift rules
•
Maximum Time on the Clock
•
Pay Interval Rounding
•
Day Change Offset
•
Overtime Thresholds
•
7th Day Overtime
•
Set up lunch rules
3. Add Employees to the timeQplus System.
4. Add Supervisors to the timeQplus System and then assign employees to those Supervisors.
After completing the Setup Wizard, we recommend launching the timeQplus software and generating a
Rules Setup Report (click Reports on the navigation bar, then select Rules Setup). Preview or print this
report to verify the application has been configured correctly to reflect your company’s time and
attendance policies.
After checking this report for accuracy and (if necessary) making any desired changes, you may begin
adding employees.
Notes:
•
Most settings can be changed at any time and will affect only the total time accumulations in the
Previous and Current Pay Period.
•
Changes to the next pay period start date will lengthen or shorten the duration of the current pay
period, but not affect the Previous Pay Period.

Getting Started
timeQplus Setup Wizard
The first time you launch timeQplus, the system will open the timeQplus Setup Wizard. This wizard will
walk you through a setup procedure to establish the initial settings for your timeQplus system. The
application is configured with default settings, however, if you choose, you can simply click through the
initial pay period setup, add employees and start clocking IN and OUT. However, we strongly suggest
updating these default settings as needed to conform to your company’s policies.
If you are upgrading from a previous version of either Attendance Rx Version 2 or timeQplus Version 3
you must still go through the Setup wizard, but simply press the Enter key for each input. Your existing
settings will later be automatically imported from your existing database.
For new installations, before you proceed through the Setup Wizard, you may find it helpful to review the
Before Getting Started section.
At any time during the Setup Wizard, you can use the Back button to review or change previous settings.
When you have entered all your company’s information, click the Finish button to complete the process
and start timeQplus.
Note: Each of these settings can be changed at any time during normal operation using the Setup and
Shifts screens on the timeQplus Navigation Bar. If you cancel the wizard before completing the setup,
timeQplus will automatically run the Setup Wizard again the next time the software is started.

timeQplus Administrator Functions - Employees
Employees
The Employees screen allows an administrator to enter and view all employees and their information. An
administrator can add a new employee, delete or modify an existing employee, assign employees to Time
Clocks, or assign Work Codes to employees (please reference the Work Codes section in the timeQplus
Supervisor Functions chapter for more information). An administrator can also enroll finger, face, and/or
hand templates after capturing the templates on an appropriate Time Clock.
To access the Employees screen, click the Employees button on the left Navigation Bar or click View on
the top menu and choose Employees.
Managing Employees
To Add an Employee:
•
On the Employees screen, type the new employee information into the top blank row,
entering the employee's Lastname, Firstname, MI (optional), Badge (optional), UserID,
employee Number (optional), Shift, and Hire Date.
o
Note: If you wish, employee UserIDs and Numbers can be set to auto-increment
by adjusting the Employee Options located on the top menu bar under ‘File’.
•
Press ENTER to save the new employee information and automatically create another blank
line at the top for additional employee entries.
•
To erase input information before adding a new employee, press the ESC key on your
keyboard, or click the Refresh button on this screen.
If employees will be using proximity/barcode/magstripe badge Time Clocks to
punch, ensure the Badge field corresponds with the number on the actual badge
assigned to the employee on the Time Clock. Refer to the TQ600 User Manual for
more information.
If employees will be using biometric finger reader or facial recognition Time
Clocks to punch, make a note of the UserID assigned to each employee. It may be a
good idea to print the Employee Profiles report, which lists each employee’s UserID,
which will be used to enroll the employee’s finger/face on the time clock. Refer to the
TQ600 User Manual for more information on capturing finger/face templates.

Employee Finger/Face/Hand Enrollment
Collecting, enrolling, and assigning an employee’s Finger, Face, or Hand on a Time Clock is a three
step process.
1. Collect the employee’s Finger/Face/Hand template on the Time Clock.
•
You will need to know the User ID assigned to the employee in timeQplus. You may find
it helpful to print an Employee Profiles report to ensure you record the templates with
the correct USER ID.
•
For detailed instructions, refer to the TQ600 User Manual for finger templates, the
TQ600F User Manual for face templates, and the Hand Punch User Manual for hand
templates. These documents can be found under Documentation on the top menu bar.

For USB Flash Drive time clocks, after all employees are enrolled, insert a USB flash
drive into the clock to capture finger or face templates.
ƒ
On the TQ600B (finger), press Menu > PenDrive Mng > Download User.
ƒ
On the TQ600F (face), press Menu > Dn/Upload > Download User.
2. Associate the template with the employee record in the software.
•
On the Employees screen, select the row containing the employee’s name.
•
Click the appropriate Enroll or Remove button and follow the on-screen instructions.
3. Assign the employee to additional Time Clocks.
•
On the Time Clock screen, select the Time Clock the employee will be using to punch.
If using a hand punch, click the Hand Punch tab and select the appropriate time clock.

06-0414-000 Rev. C
timeQplus Administrator Functions - Messages
Messages
The Messages screen allows an administrator to display a company-wide or employee-specific message
to employees when they punch at a PC on the Virtual Clock.
Note: Messages will only appear on the Virtual Clock screen when an
employee punches. Messages will not display on connected Time Clocks.
To create or edit a company-wide message:
•
To access the Messages screen, click the Messages button on the left Navigation Bar or click
View on the top menu and choose Messages.
•
Enter a company-wide message in the Enter a Company Message field. This message will
appear on the PC screen after each employee punches at the PC.
•
Click the Save button to save the message or click the X button to delete the Company Message.
Note: You must delete the Company Message when you no longer wish it to display. It will continue to
display on the PC screen after each employee punch as long as it exists on this screen.
To create or edit employee-specific messages:
Enter employee-specific messages in the Message field next to the employee’s name. This message will
appear once on this employee’s PC screen after the next punch.

timeQplus Administrator Functions - Setup
Setup
The Setup screen allows an administrator to adjust variables related to the clock, time calculations, pay
periods, holidays and Work Codes. Most items can be changed at any time and the change will be
reflected in the total time accumulations for the current and previous pay periods only.
To access the Setup screen, click the Setup button on the left Navigation Bar or click View on the top
menu bar and choose Setup. Three tabs are available for editing: General, Holidays, and Work Codes.
General
The following items may be edited using the General tab:
•
•
Pay Period – timeQplus supports WEEKLY, BI-WEEKLY, SEMI-MONTHLY, and MONTHLY Pay
Periods.
Time Card Approvals – timeQplus can be configured to require that timecards be approved by a
supervisor (or an administrator) before they can be exported to payroll.

timeQplus Administrator Functions - Setup
To Change the Pay Period Length:
Be aware that pay periods are a critical part of time and attendance tracking.
Changing pay periods can have legal and personnel implications. Exercise
caution when changing the pay period after the timeQplus software has been
configured and is in use.
1. Click the Modify button in the Pay Period section of the General tab. This will open the Modify
Active Pay Periods screen.
The available choices are:
o
Weekly - Employees are paid once per week
o
Bi-weekly - Employees are paid every two weeks
o
Semi-Monthly - Employees are paid twice per month
o
Monthly - Employees are paid once per month
2. Change the Next Pay Period Start Date if necessary to reflect the new pay period starting date.
You may either click the downward-facing arrow at the right of the field to open a calendar from
which you can select the desired date, or you may simply type the desired date directly in the
Next Pay Period Start Date field.
3. Click the Modify button to save your changes. To exit without saving changes, click the Cancel
button.

06-0414-000 Rev. C
timeQplus Administrator Functions - Setup
To configure Time Card Approvals preferences:
•
Check the “Do not export unapproved Time Cards for Hourly Employees” box to prevent the
export of unapproved time cards for hourly employees.
•
Check the “Do not export unapproved Time Cards for Salaried Employees” box to prevent the
export of unapproved time cards for salaried employees.
•
Click the Save button when done. To quit without saving changes, select another option from the
left Navigation Bar or click the Refresh button at top right and then click No in the Save Changes
dialog box.
Holidays
Optionally, timeQplus can track paid holidays and include this information when exporting to payroll. The
timeQplus software does not automatically calculate holiday dates; they will need to be manually entered
each year. If your company requires that an employee work a certain number of days before becoming
eligible for paid holidays, this can also be configured on this screen.
The following items may be edited using the Holidays tab:
•
Holiday Dates - Enter the date or select a date from the popup calendar. Enter the name of the
holiday and press Enter to save. Repeat to add additional holidays.
To delete a holiday, click to highlight the holiday you want to remove, and then click the Delete
button.
•
Employee Eligibility for Holidays - In the ‘Eligible for Holiday Pay’ box, enter the number of
days a new employee must work before becoming eligible for Holiday Pay and then click Save.
To quit without saving changes, select another option from the left Navigation Bar or click the
Refresh button at top right and then click No in the Save Changes dialog box.
Work Codes
Work Codes are used to allow a company to calculate how an employee’s work time is applied to a
specific department, project, task, etc. Work codes can be entered, edited or deleted using the Work
Codes tab on the Setup Screen. This list is referred to as the Master List of Work Codes. timeQplus can
be configured to include work code information when exporting punch data to payroll.
The following items may be edited using the Work Codes tab:
•
•
Code – the work code number. After entering the first code number, timeQplus will auto increase
the next work code number by 1. You may choose to keep the new number or just type over to
input another of your choice.
Name – the work code name.
14
06-0414-000 Rev. C
timeQplus Administrator Functions - Setup
•
•
Description – a description of the work code; optional but can be very useful.
Write to Time Clock – Must be checked before the work code can be assigned to employees or
used on any Time Clock (including the Virtual Clock).
The following applies to Hourly employees only:
• A Work Code must have "Write to Time Clock" set before it can be assigned to employees and
used on any Time Clock, including the Virtual Clock.
• Work Code assignments are managed on the Employees screen. Please see the Work Codes
section in the timeQplus Supervisor Functions chapter for detailed instructions.
• Work Codes can be used on TQ600 Time Clocks (Facial, Biometric, Proximity, Barcode, and
Magstripe), and on the Virtual Clock.
• There are two modes for using Work Codes on connected Time Clocks (the Virtual Time Clock
handles Work Codes a bit differently). Consult the user manual for details on setting the
mode on each Time Clock.
o Mode 3 - A Time Clock configured to Mode3 will allow employees to choose only their
assigned Work Codes stored in that Time Clock.
o Mode 4 - A Time Clock configured to Mode 4 will allow any employee to choose any
Work Code that has been stored in that Time Clock.
• Because the Virtual Clock is controlled entirely by the timeQplus software, it reacts differently to
Work Codes:
o If an employee is assigned Work Codes, then only those Work Codes are available to
choose when punching.
o If an employee has no Work Codes assigned, then all Work Codes with ‘Write on Time
Clock’ checked will be available for use when punching.
• A punch is considered a ‘Transfer’ if a Work Code different from the previous punch is selected.
• All OUT punches will have the same Work Code as the previous punch, which could be either an
IN or a TRANSFER.
The following applies to Salaried Employees only:
• To assign a salaried employee a work code, select the employee on the Punch Editing screen.
• In the Transaction area, select the date.
• Select ‘Reg’ from the Type drop down list and enter the time [HH:MM].
• Select a work code from the Work Code drop down list and click Insert to save changes.

timeQplus Administrator Functions - Shifts
Shifts
A shift can be defined as a set of rules enforcing company policy for a group of employees, related to
start and stop times, lunch times, overtime, and holidays. When an employee is assigned to a shift, the
software then refers to the set of rules defined for that shift and applies those rules to that employee's
transactions in order to derive the total time accumulations.
Up to twelve different shifts can be defined in timeQplus. A shift can be a traditional shift, a department, a
group within a department, etc. Each shift may be defined differently with its own set of rules.
To access the Shifts screen, click the Shifts button on the left Navigation Bar or click View on the top
menu bar and choose Shifts. The Shifts screen consists of four tabs: Shift Settings, Lunch Rules,
Overtime, and Holidays.
Shift Settings
Under the Shift Settings tab, the following items may be edited: Pay Interval Round, Max Time on
Clock, Day Change Offset, Shift Start, Shift Stop, Round, Grace, and Dock. Each setting is described
in the sections that follow. Note: Definitions for all these settings can be found in the Glossary.
To edit a shift’s settings:
•
Select a shift to edit from the Select a Shift drop-down list.
•
To change the name of a shift, simply type the new name in the Shift Name field.
•
Click the Shift Settings tab to modify Pay Interval Round, Max Time on Clock, and Day Change
Offset. Check the Shift Rules Enabled box to modify Shift Start, Shift Stop, Round, Grace and Dock
values. Click the Save button when finished. If you do not wish to make use of the Round, Grace or
Dock features, leave the minutes set to zero.
Pay Interval Rounding
Pay Interval Rounding causes time worked totals for each employee to be rounded to the nearest one,
five, six, ten or fifteen minute increment. It will not affect the actual punch time recorded in the software,
only the worked time totals. If you do not wish for your worked time totals to be rounded, set the Pay
Interval Rounding value to one minute (this is the default).
16
06-0414-000 Rev. C
timeQplus Administrator Functions - Shifts
Example 1:
Pay Interval Round time set to 10 minutes.
•
Punch at 10:14 will be treated as though it occurred at 10:10.
•
Punch at 10:15 will be treated as though it occurred at 10:20.
Example 2:
Pay Interval Round time set to 15 minutes.
•
Punch at 10:07 will be treated as though it occurred at 10:00.
•
Punch at 10:08 will be treaded as though it occurred at 10:15.
To edit Pay Interval Round:
•
Click the Shifts button on the left Navigation Bar or click View on the top menu bar and
choose Shifts. Select the shift you want to modify, and then select the ‘Shift Settings’ tab.
•
Choose the desired Pay Interval Round value from its drop-down list. Choices include 1, 5, 6,
10 or 15 minute(s). The default value for Pay Interval Rounding is 1 minute.
•
Click the Save button when done. To quit without saving changes, select another option from
the left Navigation Bar or click the Refresh button at top right and then click No in the Save
Changes dialog box.
Max Time on Clock
The Max Time on Clock setting prevents the system from calculating erroneously large worked time totals
(and possible overtime) due to missed punches. The system assumes that an employee has missed a
punch after the maximum time on the clock has been exceeded. The system will change the employee's
status to Out with zero accumulated time after the maximum time has passed since the last In/Transfer
punch. A flag will also be set that there is a missing punch on the Punch Editing screen and on the Time
Card and Hours Summary reports.
You can then enter the missing punch via Punch Editing so the employee’s time can be correctly
calculated.
The default value for Max Time on Clock is twelve hours (12:00).
Note: To disable this feature, set Max Time on Clock to zero hours (00:00).
To edit the Max Time on Clock setting:
•
Click the Shifts button on the left Navigation Bar or click View on the top menu bar and
choose Shifts. Select the shift you want to modify, and then select the ‘Shift Settings’ tab.
•
Enter the desired value in the Max Time on Clock field.
•
Click the Save button when done. To quit without saving changes, select another option from
the left Navigation Bar or click the Refresh button at top right and then click No in the Save
Changes dialog box. Changing Max Time on Clock will apply to the Previous, Current and
all future Pay Periods.
Day Change Offset
A normal day by default begins at exactly 12:00 AM. Some companies, however, may have employees
who work shifts that end at 12AM or even into the next day. Also, there may be shifts that begin at 12AM
or earlier.
Day Change Offset can be used to 'move' such employees’ workday change time backward or forward
from 12AM so their hours are credited to the proper workday. The Day Change Offset field displays
HH:MM.
•
If you do not have employees that begin or end work through 12AM, leave this setting at the
default value [00:00].
17
06-0414-000 Rev. C
timeQplus Administrator Functions - Shifts
•
If you have employees that begin work on Day1 but end work on Day2, and the hours worked
should be allocated to Day1, set Day Change Offset to the following calculated value:
[Shift Stop Time + Shift Stop Round]
Example: If your shift stops at 4:30 AM and you have a 30-minute shift stop round, the
Day Change Offset is set to [5:00].
•
If you have employees that begin work on Day1 and end work on Day2, and the hours worked
should allocated to Day2, set the Day Change Offset to the NEGATIVE of the following calculated
value:
[12:00 – Shift Start Time + Shift Start Round]
Example: If your Shift starts at 11:00 PM and you have a 15-minute shift start round, the
Day Change Offset is set to [-01:15].

Shift Rules
Check the Shift Rules Enabled box to modify Shift Start, Shift Stop, Round, Grace and Dock values.
Click the Save button when finished. If you do not wish to make use of the Round, Grace or Dock
features, leave the minutes set to zero. The following table describes each setting in more detail.
Shift Name:
The name of this shift as you would like it to appear on reports and
screen displays.
Shift Start Time:
The time of day employees are scheduled to start work. Pay careful
attention to the AM and PM settings to ensure your times are set
correctly.
Shift Stop Time:
The time of day employees are scheduled to stop work. Pay careful
attention to the AM and PM settings to ensure your times are set
correctly.
Shift Round:
The number of minutes before the scheduled Start time that an
employee’s "early" punch in will be treated as if it occurred exactly
at the scheduled Start time, or the number of minutes after the
scheduled Stop time that an employee’s "late" punch out will be
treated as if it occurred exactly at the scheduled Stop time.
This setting allows employees to clock in a few minutes early or
clock out a few minutes late, say, for time spent getting a cup of
coffee in the morning or gathering their personal belongings before
leaving work, without accumulating overtime. It does not change
the actual punch time recorded by the system, only how that punch
is treated for the purpose of calculating the employee’s worked
time.
You can set different numbers of minutes for Start Round and Stop
Round, if desired. If you do not wish to use this setting, set Start
Round and Stop Round to zero.
Note that U.S. law prohibits rounding of more than 15 minutes.
Shift Grace:
The number of minutes after the scheduled Start time that an
employee’s "late" punch in is still considered on time, or the number
of minutes before the scheduled Stop time that an employee’s
"early" punch out is considered on time.
This setting allows an employee to clock in a few minutes late or
clock out a few minutes early without being docked. It does not
change the actual punch time recorded by the system, only how
that punch is treated for the purpose of calculating the employee’s
worked time.
You can set different numbers of minutes for Start Grace and Stop
Grace, if desired. If you do not wish to use this setting, set Start
Grace and Stop Grace to zero.

Shift Dock:
The number of minutes an employee will lose from their daily total
for punching in late or punching out early outside of the parameters
of the Shift Grace setting.
Shift Dock works together with Shift Grace to determine employees’
calculated work time. If an employee clocks in or out during the
time designated as Shift Grace, the employee’s time will not be
docked. If Start Dock is set to zero, an employee who clocked in
one minute after the end of the Start Grace period would only be
docked the amount of time elapsed form the end of Start Grace. In
other words, if your Shift Grace period is set to five minutes, an
employee who punches in six minutes late would only be docked
one minute.
You can use the Shift Dock setting to override the effect of the Shift
Grace period for employees who punch in a few minutes outside
the Shift Grace period.
For instance, if you set Start Grace to five minutes and Start Dock
to 10 minutes, an employee who clocked in at three minutes after
the scheduled shift start time (within the Shift Grace period) would
not be docked. That employee’s punch would be treated as though
it had occurred at the shift start time for the purpose of calculating
employee worked time.
However, if an employee clocked in at seven minutes after the
scheduled shift start (outside the five minute Shift Grace period but
within the 10 minute Shift Dock period), that employee’s punch
would be treated as though it had occurred at 10 minutes after the
shift start for the purpose of calculating the employee’s work time.
If an employee clocked in at twelve minutes after the scheduled
shift start (outside the periods covered by both Shift Grace and
Shift Dock), that punch would simply be treated as though it
occurred at its actual time for the purpose of calculating the
employee’s worked time.
You can set different numbers of minutes for Start Dock and Stop
Dock if desired. If you do not wish to use this setting, set Start Dock
and Stop Dock to zero.
Lunch Rules
If you wish to apply lunch rules, click the Lunch Rules tab and then check the Lunch Rules Enabled box.
Enter the scheduled Lunch Start, Lunch End, Lunch Duration, and Auto After values. Click the Save
button when done. To disable the Lunch Duration and/or Auto After feature, set their values to zero.
20
06-0414-000 Rev. C
timeQplus Administrator Functions - Shifts
The following table describes each lunch setting in more detail.
Lunch Start:
The earliest time of day at which an employee can punch out for
lunch. If an employee clocks out before this time, the system
assumes the punch does not relate to a lunch period, and lunch rules
will not be applied.
Lunch End:
The latest time of day at which an employee should punch in from
lunch.
The system assumes employees will take their entire lunch
break within the window between Lunch Start and Lunch
End. It assumes a return after Lunch End indicates a longerthan-normal lunch period.
If an employee clocks out to lunch after Lunch Start but
before Lunch End (which puts Lunch Rules in effect), then
clocks in from lunch after Lunch End, the difference between
Lunch End and the time the employee actually clocks in will
be added to the Lunch Duration to calculate the total time
deducted from the employee’s hours worked total for lunch.
You may need to adjust the hours worked totals for such
employees using the Punch Editing screen if the time
deducted exceeds their actual lunch time taken.
If you find you consistently have to make this adjustment for
many employees, you may wish to consider modifying your
Lunch End setting to a later time.
Lunch Duration:
The minimum number of minutes subtracted from time worked totals
for each lunch period. If an employee is clocked out for lunch longer
than the designated Lunch Duration, the system will deduct the
actual amount of time the employee is clocked out. However, if an
employee takes a shortened lunch – that is, clocks out after the
designated Lunch Start and clocks back in before the amount of time
set in the Lunch Duration field has elapsed – the system will
automatically deduct the full Lunch Duration.
This setting can be useful in structured environments such as
a production line, where employees must take standard-length
lunch breaks. Enforcing a standard Lunch Duration will ensure
you do not overpay employees in the event they clock back in
from lunch early before they can actually start work.
In other types of environments, use caution with this setting
to ensure you do not underpay employees who take
shortened lunch breaks. You may need to adjust the hours
worked totals for such employees using the Punch Editing
screen if the time deducted exceeds their actual lunch time
taken.
21
06-0414-000 Rev. C
timeQplus Administrator Functions - Shifts
Auto Lunch After:
The length of time an employee can be on the clock before the
system assumes they have missed punching out for lunch and
automatically deducts the Lunch Duration from their hours worked
total. If the Lunch Duration field is set to zero, the Auto Lunch After
setting will have no effect.
Use caution with this setting. If an employee skips lunch,
and you have Auto Lunch After configured, the Lunch
Duration will automatically be deducted from their hours
worked total. You must manually add that time back using the
Punch Editing screen in order to avoid underpaying that
employee.
You can view the adjustments made to individual punches by the
system as dictated by the shift and lunch rules you configured by
selecting a punch affected by these rules in the Punch Editing screen
and clicking the DETAILS button.
Overtime
Overtime specifies the amount of time an employee must work before overtime will begin to accumulate.
The threshold amounts may be set on both a daily basis and/or weekly basis. Both the daily and weekly
overtime thresholds may be set at two different levels to reflect company policy.
Example 1:
If you pay overtime based only on the number of hours worked in a week, not on the number of hours
worked in a given day, set the Daily Level 1 and Daily Level 2 to 24:00 hours. If you do not pay a second
level of overtime on a weekly basis, set Weekly Level 2 to 168:00 hours.
22
06-0414-000 Rev. C
timeQplus Administrator Functions - Shifts
Example 2:
You pay employees at 1.5 times their pay rate (time and a half) if a given employee works over 40 hours
in a week and 2 times the normal pay rate (double time) if the employee works over 48 hours in a week.
To implement these rules, set Weekly Level 1 to 40 hours and Weekly Level 2 to 48 hours. If an
employee then works 60 hours in a particular week, the totals generated will be:
•
Regular: 40:00
•
Overtime 1: 08:00
•
Overtime 2: 12:00
To edit the Overtime Threshold Values:
•
Click the Shifts button on the left Navigation Bar or click View on the top menu bar and choose
Shifts. Select the shift you want to modify, and then click the ‘Overtime’ tab.
•
Check the Overtime Enabled box and type the desired overtime thresholds in the Daily Level 1,
Daily Level 2, Weekly Level 1 and Weekly Level 2 fields.
•
Click the Save button when done. To quit without saving changes, select another option from the
left Navigation Bar or click the Refresh button at top right and then click No in the Save Changes
dialog box.
7th Day Overtime
When enabled, 7th Day Overtime will promote all hours worked on the seventh consecutive worked day
to the next higher pay level (Overtime 1 or Overtime 2), provided that the 7 consecutive days start at the
beginning of the a given week of the pay period. This rule affects only the Daily Overtime calculations and
will not overwrite any Weekly Overtime rule settings. To enable 7th Day Overtime, check the ‘Enable 7th
Day Overtime’ box on the Overtime tab.
Note: This feature was designed to accommodate a law commonly referred to as California Overtime.
Holidays
You can override the company-wide settings regarding holiday pay for individual shifts. If you wish
holidays to be paid for employees assigned to this shift, check the ‘Holidays are paid’ box and then enter
the number of hours to be paid for each holiday. Click the Save button when done. To quit without saving

Punch Editing
Punch Editing allows administrators and supervisors to do the following:
•
Review and edit employee transactions
•
Adjust the total time accumulations
•
View the details of transaction totals and how the software calculated the transactions
•
Add missed punches
•
Modify Work Codes
•

•
Print an employee's time card
To access the Punch Editing screen, click the Punch Editing button on the left Navigation Bar or click
View on the top menu bar and choose Punch Editing.
timeQplus can store several different types of transactions:
•
PUNCH (CLK): a normal punch In or Out on a connected Time Clock
•
INSERTED (INS): an entry inserted using the Punch Editing screen.
•
PUNCH (PC): an entry created when an employee clocks In or Out using the Virtual Clock
•
TIMESLIP (SLP): an entry created when a salaried employee submits a transaction using the
Submit Employee TimeSlip feature on the Virtual Clock (salaried employees only)
The code (CLK, INS, PC, and SLP) at the left of each transaction line in the Punch Editing screen
identifies the type of transaction. These various types of transactions allow for Salaried Exempt and
Salaried Non-Exempt employees, as well as hourly employees, to use the software.

The Export Layout has three sections:
1. Header Record - contains info that identifies the payroll export such as Export ID, Company
Name, Payperiod Start Date, Payperiod End Date, Export Creation Date, Export Creation Time,
etc.
2. Employee Data - contains all data necessary for processing the payroll, i.e., the actual time and
benefits that each employee accumulated or used.
3. Trailer Record - The trailer record usually reiterates information contained in the header record.
The number of lines that appears in each section depends on the number of lines specified for each
section in the Main Setup Screen.
The "# of Field" is where the number of data elements for each line can be specified. If you type "4" in the

timeQplus Administrator Functions – Export
When any other selection except “Fixed Length” is selected from the ‘Field Separator’ drop down list, the
Custom Export Properties Table appears as follows:
•
Export Field – The values in this column are all the data elements that are available for export to
a payroll program. Note that the number of “Custom x” data elements is controlled by "User
Defined Fields in Export" in the Main Setup Screen.
•
Export Code - For all fields you can type in the required name for any attribute that your Payroll
program requires in the "Export Code" column. Example: the attribute "Overtime Level 1" may
be imported by a Payroll program as "OT1". In the "Export Code" column beside "Overtime Level
1" you would type the name "OT1" over the default name "Overtime Level 1".
•
Custom Value – The "Custom x" attributes are static data elements that are exported with every
export. An example might be "Company Name". You would type the Company Name in the
"Custom value" column beside Custom 1 over the default value "Custom 1". Custom Value only
applies to the Custom data attributes. Typing a value for any of the other data elements will not
have an effect.

•
Format – The format of each data element can be set as either Alphanumeric, Numeric, Date or
Time. To change the default value, click on the field and select the new value from the pull-down
list.
•
Fixed Length – When Fixed Length is chosen for the field separator the "Fixed Length" column
will be shown in the Properties Table. Each attribute has a default Fixed Length value. To
change the value simply type the new value over the default value, i.e., if "First Name" must be
limited to 8 characters by the payroll program type "8" over the default value of "10". Only the
first "8" characters of the First Name will be exported (Right or Left Alignment has no effect on
which characters are exported).
•
Alignment – When Fixed Length is chosen for the field separator the "Alignment" column will be
shown in the Properties Table.
Save Template

QuickBooks® Payroll Integration
timeQplus easily exports employee Time Card data to QuickBooks. Work Codes can be included in the
export as well.
The following topics will guide you throughout the export process:
•
Setting up QuickBooks® to communicate with timeQplus
•
Setting up timeQplus to Communicate with QuickBooks®
•
Exporting timeQplus data to QuickBooks®
Setting up QuickBooks® to communicate with timeQplus
Before You Begin
Make sure QuickBooks® Pro/Premier is installed on your local computer and that you have access to the
company file (*.QBW).
Enable Time Tracking in QuickBooks®
To turn on time tracking (in QuickBooks Pro/Premier 2013 or later):
1. From the Edit menu, choose Preferences.
2. In the Preferences window, select Time & Expenses from the scroll box on the left.
3. Click the Company Preferences tab and select Yes for "Do You Track Time?"

06-0414-000 Rev. C
timeQplus Administrator Functions – Export
Note: QuickBooks may close all windows after this setting has been changed.
4. In the Preferences window, select Payroll & Employees from the scroll box on the left.
5. On the Company Preferences tab, click the Employee Defaults button.
6. If not already, check "Use time data to create paychecks”.
7. Click OK to close the Employee Defaults window, and then click OK again to close the
Preferences window.
Note: In previous versions of QuickBooks Pro/Premier, some items listed on the left in the Preferences
window may be labeled differently. Please refer to your QuickBooks ® documentation for more
information on these settings.
If employees were added to QuickBooks prior to enabling time tracking, each employee must be set up to
use timesheets to track hours. This must be done one employee at a time.
To turn on time tracking for a single employee:
1. On the top menu bar, choose Employees > Employee Center.
2. Double-click the employee in question.
3. Choose Change Tabs > Payroll and Compensation Info. In QuickBooks 2013, click the
Payroll Info tab.
4. Under the Earnings box, check the Use time data to create paychecks box.
5. In Pay Frequency ensure the employee is set up for the correct frequency (i.e. If an
employee has a Pay Frequency set for Annual all time sheets from the ending pay
period date to the prior year will be pulled into the paycheck), be sure Pay Period and
Payroll Schedule are correct.
6. Click OK.
Create Hourly Wage Pay Items in QuickBooks®
QuickBooks must be setup with a unique Hourly Wage Pay Item for each of the following timeQplus time
types: Regular, Overtime 1, Overtime 2, Vacation, Holiday, Sick, and Other. Please refer to your
QuickBooks® documentation for information on how to create and modify Hourly Wage Pay Items.
In timeQplus, the default values for each Hourly Wage Pay Item are:
•
Regular Pay
•
Holiday Pay
•
Overtime Pay
•
Sick Pay
•
Premium Overtime Pay
•
Other Pay
•
Vacation Pay
Please make note of the exact name for each Hourly Wage Pay Item from QuickBooks. This information
will need to be entered in timeQplus prior to exporting employee time card data.
Add Employees
If you attempt to export an employee’s timecard to QuickBooks®, and the employee does not exist in the
application, you will be prompted to add the employee(s) at the time of the export.
Add Work Codes
If Work Codes should be included when exporting to QuickBooks®, they will need to be defined as
customers. The spelling of the customer name in QuickBooks® must exactly match the spelling of the
work code name in timeQplus. Please refer to your QuickBooks® documentation for information on how
to create and modify your customer list.
Setting up timeQplus to Communicate with QuickBooks®
For the QuickBooks® Integration, each employee name must be a unique combination of characters.
Since timeQplus does NOT enforce uniqueness among employee names, it uses the Export ID assigned
to each employee to export time card data to QuickBooks.
When adding to timeQplus an employee who already exists in QuickBooks, enter the full employee name,
exactly as it appears in QuickBooks, in the Export ID field on the employee’s Employee Profile screen in
timeQplus.

06-0414-000 Rev. C
timeQplus Administrator Functions – Export
When adding to QuickBooks employees who already exist in timeQplus, make sure each employee name
entered in QuickBooks exactly matches the Export ID of each employee in timeQplus.
Exporting timeQplus data to QuickBooks®
1. On the Export screen, select the Output Format: QuickBooks Integration.
2. Click the Export button
Note: If you have never chosen a QuickBooks® company file (*.QBW) or mapped your pay codes and
work codes (if applicable), you will need to do so before you can run the integration.
Data Export Setup Screen
Step 1 – Select Company File
Click Select to select the QuickBooks® company file (*.QBW) you created for your company.
Step 2 – Setup Pay Codes
Map the timeQplus Pay Code to the corresponding Wage Pay Item in QuickBooks®.
If this is the first time you are running the integration, please have QuickBooks® running and your
company file opened. You will not be required to have QuickBooks® running in the future.
Step 3 – Include Work Codes
If work codes are to be included in the export, check the ‘Include Work Codes’ box.
Note: In order for work codes to be properly exported to QuickBooks®, they will need to be defined
in QuickBooks® as customers (timeQplus does not currently support the export of work codes when
defined as jobs in QuickBooks®). The work code name in timeQplus must exactly match the
customer name as defined in QuickBooks®.
Step 4 – Click OK to run the integration
If this is the first time you are running the integration, QuickBooks® will prompt you that an
application without a certificate is attempting to access your company file.
Click Yes, Always to allow timeQplus to integrate with QuickBooks®
Add Missing Employees to QuickBooks
If you are attempting to export timecard data for an employee who is not found in QuickBooks® you will
be prompted by timeQplus to add the missing employee to QuickBooks.
Missing Payroll Items
If you are attempting to export timeQplus Pay Codes that do not exactly match one of the QuickBooks®
Payroll Items, you will be prompted by timeQplus and the integration will be canceled.
Note: The spelling of the Pay Codes and corresponding Payroll Items must be identical.
Missing Work Codes
If you are attempting to export timeQplus Work Codes that do not exactly match one of the
QuickBooks® Customer names, an error will occur and the integration will be canceled. If the ‘Include
Work Codes’ box is checked, each work code in timeQplus must be defined as a customer in
QuickBooks® before the export can continue.
Note: The spelling of the Work Code names and the corresponding Customer names must be identical.
Peachtree Complete Accounting
Before exporting employee time card data to Peachtree Complete Accounting, you must first configure
the following:
•
Inventory Items – You must set up inventory item(s) that are associated with REG, OT1, OT2,
VAC,HOL, SIC and OTH hourly wages. Normally, this is one item but may be defined individually for
each level. Please see Peachtree Accounting help for instructions on setting up Employee Time slip
Items.
39
06-0414-000 Rev. C
timeQplus Administrator Functions – Export
•
Employees – Before you can import Time Card data to Peachtree Complete Accounting, you must
make sure that the employee IDs assigned to the employees in Peachtree match the Export IDs for
each of the employees defined in the timeQplus software.
Mismatched employee IDs will generate an error when attempting to import to Peachtree Complete
Accounting and may cause unexpected results.
Also, for each employee, you must enter Pay Rates for the 3 levels of the inventory item associated
with hourly wages along with vacation, holiday, sick and other wages. By default, the first pay level
will receive imported REGULAR hours, the second will receive imported OVERTIME1 hours and the
third will receive imported OVERTIME2 hours. The vacation, holiday, sick and other wages levels
must be set according to the desired outcome.
After creating a Peachtree Compatible file from timeQplus data, go to the Import/Export form in your
Peachtree Complete Accounting software and create a new export format including all fields and with
Field Headers in first Record selected. Then selected the timeQplus export file you just created and
execute the import to Peachtree.

•
The software will then prompt you for the name of the Peachtree Complete export file (*.csv).

•
When you have assigned [or removed] all the desired employees on that Time Clock, click the
Save button.
Note: Occasionally, a Time Clock may display a red dot to the left of its name (indicating a loss of
communications). This condition almost always indicates a problem with your company LAN. Normally,
the communications connection would be re-established automatically at the next polling interval, when
the software polls the Time Clocks. If you need to work with a Time Clock before then, such as to assign
employees, press the POLL button. This usually works to re-establish the connection between the
software and the Time Clock. If this fails to solve the problem, it is recommended you contact your
company technical resources for assistance before contacting Acroprint. Contacting Acroprint for this type
of problem may be a fee based communication.
Loading Employee Data onto a USB Time Clock
You can load Employee Data on a Time Clock using one of three methods:
• Method 1: Uploading Employee Information from timeQplus via a flash drive.
• Method 2: Connect the Time Clock via cable (Ethernet or serial) to the timeQplus Server or Client
PC, assign employees, and then, in timeQplus, change the Time Clock to a USB Flash Drive.
• Method 3: Manually adding employees to the Time Clock thru the Time Clock menu.
Methods 1 and 2 are equally preferred ways to load employee information onto a Time Clock. Either
method eliminates the possibility of keying in erroneous information for an employee and is much faster if
you have more than a few employees. In both cases, the employee’s name is displayed when punching.
Method 1 – Uploading Employee Info via Flash Drive
1. Download the employee data from the timeQplus software to a USB flash drive.
a. Insert a flash drive into the PC where the timeQplus server is running.
b. Navigate to the Time Clock screen on the timeQplus software and click the "USB flash
drive" tab.
c.
Select the employees you want to assign to the Remote Time Clock and click "Save".
d. If there are multiple USB storage devices connected to the PC, you will need to specify to
which flash drive on which you want to save the employee information. (See image
below)
e. Click the "Save to USB" button.
Two or four files will be downloaded to the Flash Drive. Two if you are not using Work Codes, four if
you are. The files are: user.dat, template.dat, globalworkcodes.dat, and userworkcodes.dat.
Note: For the Face Verify Time Clock, you will see ssrface.dat instead of template.dat.
IMPORTANT!
•
Each time you click "Save to USB"; all assigned employees will be downloaded to the Flash
Drive even if they have already been downloaded previously.
•
If you want to assign only certain employees to a given Time Clock, you will need to delete
any existing files on the Flash drive before saving the next group of employees to the Flash
drive for the next Time Clock.
2. After downloading all employee information, connect the flash drive to the Time Clock.
3. Press the "Menu’ button.
58
06-0414-000 Rev. C
timeQplus Administrator Functions – Time Clock
Note: For a facial recognition Time Clock, skip to step 6.
4. Select ‘PenDrive Mng’ and press ‘OK’.
5. Select ‘UpLoad User’ and press ‘OK’. You will see ‘Copy Data Suc‘ when upload is complete.
6. Press Menu > Dn/Upload > Upload User. You will see ‘Upload Successfully’ when upload is
complete.
7. Remove flash drive. Now employees can punch as needed.
Method 3 - Manually Adding Employees to the Time Clock:
You can add employees directly to the time clock. You must make sure that the User ID of each
employee matches that employee’s User ID in the timeQplus software.
If you add employees via this method, a punch will show the employee User ID #. The employee name
will not be displayed when punching.
Downloading Punch Data from a Time Clock to a flash drive
•
Connect your flash drive to your Time Clock. For facial recognition time clocks, skip to step 3.
•
On the Time Clock, press Menu> PenDrive Mng> Download AttLog. Skip to step 4.
•
On the facial recognition Time Clock, press Menu > Dn/Upload > Download Transactions.
•
Once the Time Clock has copied all punch data to the Flash Drive, a message, "Copy Data Suc"
or "Download Successfully" will appear on the Time Clock display indicating that the transfer of
punch data was successful.
•
Remove the Flash Drive.
A single flash drive can be used with multiple Time Clocks since each transaction data file is identified
with the device number of the Time Clock. For example, 1_attlog.dat, 2_attlog.dat, etc.
All transactions will be downloaded including any that existed before the last download, assuming they
have not been manually deleted.
To delete transactions from the Time Clock (only after downloading to a flash drive and uploading to your
timeQplus Server):
•
On face recognition time clocks, press Menu > Data Mgt. > Delete Transactions.
•
On badge or biometric time clocks:
o
Press Menu.
o
Select ‘Options’ and press ‘OK’.

Poll and Update
The Polling process performs the following actions in timeQplus:
•
Polling retrieves punches that have been made on any connected Time Clock and updates the
timeQplus server with punches since the last Polling event.
•
Polling will clear the Time Clock of all punches after retrieval. A visual record of punches will,
however, remain on the ‘Device Events’ screen on the Time Clock tab.
•
Polling sends the timeQplus server time and date to any connected Time Clock.
•
Removes from connected Time Clocks employees that are ‘marked for deletion’, i.e., employees
whose templates have been removed from the timeQplus software.
The Update process performs the following actions in timeQplus:
•
A polling event is the first action launched when you start the Update process. Polling is done to
obtain an accurate In/Out status for employees assigned to the Time Clock.
•
Updates a connected Time Clock with employee name changes.
•
Updates the hours worked for the current pay period for each employee assigned to a connected
Time Clock. If an employee is assigned to multiple Time Clocks, each Time Clock is updated.
•
Refreshes the current Work Code list to update all additions and deletions.
