Setup
Sections 1 through 8 of this manual explain the setup and configuration of
TimeWorksTouch. These steps must be followed before registering the clock to your
online timekeeping account.
VIDEO HELP: You can also watch a video on the TimeWorksTouch setup at
https://vimeo.com/213275300
1. Before You Start
Know the following before setting up TimeWorksTouch:
1. Connectivity Method- TimeWorksTouch connects to the internet via Ethernet or
Wi-Fi. Depending on the method you choose, you will need to know some
additional information to connect the device to the internet. You can use the
space below to write down this information for reference:
 For Wi-Fi Networks- You'll need your network’s name and password:
Wi-Fi ID:
_________________________________________________
Wi-Fi Password: _________________________________________________
V.2.1_170712
2
7/12/2017
 For Ethernet Networks- You'll need to know whether your network requires
a static IP address or not. Most networks do not require a static IP. Instead,
they commonly use a method called DHCP and you will not need any
additional information on the network.
If your network requires a static IP, your network administrator will need to
provide you with the following information:
Static IP: _______________________________________________________
Gateway: _______________________________________________________
DNS:
_______________________________________________________
2. Timekeeping login and password- You will need to have a Client Level login or
higher1 to register the clock—supervisors cannot register a clock.
2. Physical Installation
Follow these steps for the installation and mounting of TimeWorksTouch:
1. Choose a Location- Make sure the location has access to a power outlet as well
as an Ethernet port or a strong Wi-Fi signal.
2. Attach the Mounting Plate- On the back of the clock, remove the metal
mounting plate. Use the provided screws to attach the mounting plate to the
wall.
3. Activate the Battery- On the back of the clock, open the backup battery
compartment. Remove the red plastic tab and replace the cover. This will result
in the device powering up. Do not launch the TimeWorksTouch app at this
time.
4. Connect the Power Supply to the Clock- The backup battery only provides 2 to 3
hours of power under normal use, so you will want to use the provided power
supply for the clock. The connection for the power supply is found on the back of
the clock.

7/12/2017
5. Connect the Ethernet Cable to the Clock- This is only necessary if you are using
Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi. Plug the Ethernet cable into the back of the clock.
6. Mount the Clock on the Mounting Plate- Attach the clock to mounting plate and
secure it to the plate with the small screw provided in the box. There is a tab on
the bottom of the mounting plate which fits inside of the screw hole at the base
of the clock.
7. Remove Protective Screens- There are protective screens over the touch screen
as well as the fingerprint sensor.
8. Plug the Clock In- Do not launch the TimeWorksTouch app at this time. It
must first be connected to the internet. Configuration of the device's internet
connection (Section 2) must be completed before launching the app.

7/12/2017
3. The device will scan for available Wi-Fi signals and display all available
networks. Select your network by tapping the name and when prompted, enter
the password.
Reference Section 1 for your Wi-Fi ID and password.
Figure 2. The device settings screen is where you enable and configure the Wi-Fi for TimeWorksTouch.
Wi-Fi Signal Strength
Wi-Fi networks are more susceptible to signal interruptions. An Ethernet connection is
generally more reliable than Wi-Fi. At the lower right of the clock is a signal strength
indicator. When it is two bars or less, we recommend you boost your Wi-Fi signal or use
an Ethernet connection.
Once you are successfully connected to your Wi-Fi network, proceed to Section 4, Time
Zone Setup.
Ethernet Setup
Usually TimeWorksTouch does not require additional setup for an Ethernet network.
This is because the most common Ethernet configurations use DHCP and
TimeWorksTouch should come out of the box set to DHCP. However, it is
recommended to verify the device is set to DHCP. Instead of DHCP, some networks
require a static IP. These instructions address both verifying DHCP mode and setting a
static IP:

Manager icon in the app list.
Figure 3. The Ethernet Manager screen is where Static IP information can be entered. It is also
where DHCP mode is enabled.
2. Press Configure Network followed by Configure Ethernet (see Figure 3).
3. If your network uses DHCP, under Connection Type, select DHCP.
If your network requires a static IP, reference the IP information provided by
your network admin Section 1 and follow these steps:
a. Under Connection Type, select Static IP.
b. Clear out the pre-entered IP, Gateway and DNS information and enter the
information provided by your network administrator. Netmask normally
does not need to be changed, but if it is needed, your network admin
should provide that information.
4. Press the Home button to return to the Home screen. Your changes will be saved
upon exit. You can now proceed to Section 4, Time Zone Setup.

check for any available software updates.
This process may take a few moments and during that time, you may see a blank
screen. Once the clock has finished updating, you will see the clock entry screen on
which an employee will clock in and out (see Figures 14 and 15).
7. Software Updating
TimeWorksTouch is designed to check for software updates nightly, but when you
register the clock, it will also check for an update after 2 minutes of inactivity. The
update process is brief and only happens if there is an update available. A blue install
screen indicates that the update has initiated and once completed, TimeWorksTouch
will display the clock entry screen.
V.2.1_170712

7/12/2017
The nightly auto-updates will download at 2 am local time. If you wish to change the
default time for updating the software, you can learn how to do this through the article
Updating Software for TimeWorksTouch
(https://twpsupport.payrollservers.us/customer/portal/articles/2780224) in our
online knowledge base.
8. Employee Sign In Methods
When you receive the clock, all three of the following methods are enabled for your
employees to use when punching in and out:
 PIN entry – employee enters a number
 Proximity card – employee scans a card
 Biometric scan – employee uses a fingerprint
You can have any combination of these methods enabled. Follow the steps below if you
want to turn off any of these sign-in methods:
1. From the TimeWorksTouch clock entry
screen, click the gear icon (see Figure 8)
to access the Clock Settings tabs.
Figure 8. The gear icon is used to access the
TimeWorksTouch Settings Page.

Setup of the clock is now complete. If employees are using fingerprints on the clock,
please continue to the next section, Enrolling Fingerprints.
If employees are using PINs or prox cards, and those numbers have already been
added to Employee Setup, the clock is ready to use. See Appendix B: Adding Employees
to the Clock, for more information on adding PIN and prox numbers to Employee Setup.
Print Enrollment, Use & Changing
Settings
9. Enrolling Fingerprints
An employee's print must be enrolled on TimeWorksTouch before they can clock in and
out with the biometric scanner. Enrollment is the process of recording landmarks (not
the actual print) from an employee’s finger onto the clock and subsequently, our
servers.
V.2.1_170712

7/12/2017
VIDEO HELP: A video on the enrollment process can be found at
https://vimeo.com/213275265
For sites with more than one TimeWorksTouch clock, an employee enrolled on one
clock will be enrolled on all clocks. However, prints enrolled on non-TimeWorksTouch
clocks are not compatible with TimeWorksTouch.
The ability to enroll fingerprints can be done by supervisor level user as well as client
and accountant level user.
IMPORTANT: Before enrolling an employee, they must be added to Employee Setup
in the timekeeping system (see Appendix B: Adding Employees to the Clock).
Follow these steps for the enrollment process:
There is a timeout on these screens, so it is best to have the employee available when
you start.
1. From the clock entry screen, (see Figures 14 and 15), access the Settings
tabs by tapping the gear icon (see Figure 8).
2. Login with your timekeeping credentials.
3. Choose the Fingerprints tab. This may be the only tab you see.
4. Select Add Employee Fingerprint (see Figure 10).
Figure 10. The Fingerprints tab in TimeWorksTouch is used to enroll fingerprints.

5. Search and select the employee by name (see Figure 11). You can narrow the
results by typing either the first or last name with the onscreen keyboard.
6. Click Continue.
Figure 11. The fingerprint enrollment screen. Employees are
selected by their name.
Figure 12. This is the message displayed when an employee is being enrolled.
During this process, the employee place their finger on the fingerprint sensor
three times.
7. The following screen (see Figure 12) prompts the employee to place their
finger on the sensor. They should press firmly without smashing the finger.
The print will be scanned and the device will beep if successful. After the
beep, the employee should remove their finger from the scanner and repeat
this step two more times. Once three successful scans have been made, the
screen will change to an enrollment confirmation message (see Figure 13).

employee's print has been enrolled.
If you are finished enrolling fingerprints, you can click either Done and return to the
Fingerprint tab, or you can continue enrolling fingerprints with the Add Another button.
Fingerprint Enrollment Best Practices
Try these tips for effective fingerprint enrollment:
 Make sure the employee has clean, dry and warm hands.
 The print should be pressed firmly, but make sure the employee doesn’t smash
or move their finger while it is being enrolled. They should also follow this same
practice when clocking in or out.
 If there is difficulty enrolling a certain finger, try a different finger. Often index
fingers are more worn and provide less accurate enrollments than other fingers.
If the print enrollment is still unsuccessful after you have tried different fingers, you
can enable a PIN entry for the employee to use in place of their print. See Appendix B:
Adding Employees to the Clock for more on this.
Forcing Employees to Clock In and Out With Their
Fingerprint
When employees are using the biometric sign in method, it is best to not give them a
PIN in Employee Setup. TimeWorksTouch associates prints with employees by name—
V.2.1_170712
16
7/12/2017
there is no need for a PIN4. If the employee needs access to Employee Self Service, give
them an alphanumeric login instead of a numeric only login. The alphanumeric login
can still be used to access the ESS, but it cannot be used on the clock.
You can find more information about the biometric feature of TimeWorksTouch in
Appendix C: Additional Biometric Information.
10. Intelligent Clock Features
Intelligent Clock (which can be enabled by your timekeeping provider) adds these
features to TimeWorksTouch:
 Punch Types – Additional buttons are added to TimeWorksTouch for tracking
breaks, meals and departmental transfers.
 Punch Logic – When an employee signs into TimeWorksTouch, the last punch
made by that employee is checked and only clock buttons for the next logical
punch type are enabled for that employee. For example, if an employee's last
punch was an out punch, the out button will be disabled for their next punch.
This helps decrease missed punches on the time card.
 Paid Break Tracking – With the addition of a break button, rules can be set in
the timekeeping system that set limits on how many minutes for which an
employee can be paid.
 Clock Lockout – This feature prevents an employee from clocking in early. It
requires the use of scheduling and rules defined in the timekeeping system.
11. Using the Clock – Punching In and Out
These instructions are intended to instruct employees on how to use the clock. They
are organized by each sign in method: biometric, PIN and prox.
TimeWorksTouch differs from our other clocks in that it does not require a PIN to associate a print with a time
card. If you had an older clock that used PINs and are now using TimeWorksTouch, you can choose to remove
those PINs from Employee Setup, or you can turn off the PIN entry option entirely (see Section 8). However, the
latter option means no employees will be able to use a PIN on the clock.

The basic functionality of TimeWorksTouch provides buttons for IN and OUT only. With
Intelligent Clock functionality, an employee can also: clock in and out of breaks and
meals, as well as transfer departments. More on these features can be found in Section
10, Intelligent Clock.
Clock Entry Screens
These are the initial screens you will see when using the clock.

Appendixes
Appendix A: Identifying Your User Type
Certain functions and settings on the clock are only accessible to certain types of users.
This section explains how to determine your user type and the permissions associated
with that type.
Supervisor
If you are a manager or supervisor that can access time cards for selected
employees, but you don’t have access to administrative features, you are a
Supervisor. On TimeWorksTouch you can enroll employee fingerprints.
Client
If you are a manager or administrator for an employer that uses this clock, and you
have access to the administrative features of the timekeeping system, like creating
the payroll export, then you are a Client. On TimeWorksTouch, you can:
 enroll employee prints
 change Clock Settings
 perform the initial registration of the clock
Accountant
If you are a timekeeping provider and are setting up this clock for one of your
clients, you are an Accountant. On TimeWorksTouch, you can:




enroll employee prints
change Clock Settings

Appendix B: Adding Employees to the Clock
Before employees can use the clock, they must be set up in the timekeeping system.
This is done through Employee Setup which is accessed by clicking Employee Setup in
the left navigational menu. Once you see the list of
employees, you can click their name to modify or add
information to their record.
If you do not have access to Employee Setup, someone
with rights to that page, like an HR administrator or
manager, will need to setup employees for using the
clock.
The data required for an employee to use the clock is
(see Figure 19):
 first name
 last name
 a PIN or prox number in the Login field
IMPORTANT: Employees using a fingerprint to
sign in do not need a PIN in Employee Setup.5
Figure 19. Employee Setup. The fields
highlighted in red are required for
using a PIN or Prox card to clock in
and out.
Appendix C: Additional Biometric Information
The following are some commonly asked questions regarding the biometric
functionality of TimeWorksTouch.
Does the clock save a copy of an employee’s
fingerprint?
No, instead the clock records a numerical series of key points taken from the finger.
The original fingerprint image cannot be recreated from this data.
5
Other clocks we sell do require a PIN for biometric enrollment, but with TimeWorksTouch, the print is
associated to the employee's name, not a PIN.
V.2.1_170712

7/12/2017
How do I prevent employees with a fingerprint or prox
card from using the WebClock?
In Employee Setup, select the employees that
should not use WebClocks and set Web Clock
Enabled to "No".
If I have multiple clocks, do I need to enroll each
employees on every clock?
No, as long as all the clocks are TimeWorksTouch clocks. Prints enrolled on
TimeWorksTouch are uploaded to our servers and shared to other TimeWorksTouch
clocks on your site.
I’m replacing an older biometric clock with
TimeWorksTouch, do I need to re-enroll the
fingerprints?
Yes. The this is because the fingerprint mapping used by TimeWorksTouch is different
and more accurate than our older biometric models. Fingerprints enrolled on other
clock models will not be recognized by TimeWorksTouch.
Can I enroll fingerprints in offline mode?
No, the clock must be connected to the internet to enroll fingerprints.
How do I know which employees are
already enrolled?
The Biometrics Maintenance page in the timekeeping
system displays the status of your employee enrollments.
All employees will be displayed and grouped by those
who have been enrolled and those who have not been
enrolled.

Appendix D: Troubleshooting and Technical Info
Black Screen
This likely means the clock was accidentally put to sleep. Using the Never Sleep settings
can prevent this from happening. Press the power button on the left side of the clock to
wake the clock back up and return to the clock entry screen. Then, follow the
instructions in Section 5, Never Sleep Mode.
When the fingerprint reader is green, the clock has power and is operational. If pressing
the power button does not wake the clock up, contact your timekeeping provider for
further assistance.
Loss of Internet Connection
TimeWorksTouch will collect punches (including fingerprint punches) when not
connected to the internet. When the connection is restored, the punches will be
transmitted to our severs and be visible on the time cards. Intelligent Clock features,
like Clock Lockout and Punch Logic, will not work in offline mode as these both require
interaction with the timekeeping system.
Loss of Power
The clock has an internal battery which will keep it operating for 2 to 3 hours. However,
once the battery expires, the clock will not be able to accept punches. Any punches
made prior to the clock losing power will be saved on the clock. Once power is
returned to the clock, those punches will be transmitted.
Clock No Longer Connects to Network
If the clock is in offline mode and you cannot find any problem with your network
signal, make sure nothing has changed on your network from when you originally setup
and configured the device. For example, if your Wi-Fi password has changed, the clock
will not be able to connect until you enter the new password. Changing the network
settings while the clock is offline requires special steps outlined in Section 13, Device
Settings in Offline Mode.
