Installation and Setup Your Clock Real Time installation may vary, depending on how many
locations you are setting up for scanning and monitoring, the number of
computers that will be used for and accessing your time and attendance
system, and your network setup and database location.
This section describes the initial or "typical" Starter bundle setup.
Typical Installation This section describes installing for the first time on a Stand Alone Computer.
Installation Steps STEP 1:
LOG IN AS ADMINISTRATOR
Log in as Administrator if you are not already. You will have to reboot to complete this step.
NOTE: If you are installing on Windows XP go to Step 5.
STEP 2:
WINDOWS 7 AND WINDOWS VISTA USERS: TURN OFF USER
ACCOUNT CONTROL (UAC)
User Account Control (UAC) must be turned off *while* logged in as Administrator.
The simple steps to turn off UAC are here:

SKIP TO STEP 4.
B. Once the License Agreement screen appears, read the agreement carefully using the side
scroll bars to move up and down, then click 'I Agree.' The Clock Real Time components
screen then appears:
1
This assumes your computer's CD-ROM drive is designated with a D: letter. Adjust accordingly if it is different on your system.
11
C. Check the components you are installing this session. You will use this CD to install
additional licenses in the future, but for the first installation, make sure all components
are selected. Click 'Next.' The Choose Install Location Screen appears.
D. Setup suggests a default folder to install the Clock Real Time components. For future
additions to your system or for network installations, the value in the Destination Folder
is likely to be different, but for now it is recommended to use the default suggested
directory and click 'Install.' You will see the progress of the components installing, then
the Completion Screen appears.
12
E. Click 'Finish' to complete Clock Real Time installation.
STEP 4:
DISABLE FIREWALL SOFTWARE
Make sure you are not behind a firewall until you are activated.
STEP 5:
CONNECT TO THE INTERNET
You must be online (connected to the internet) before activating your license.
STEP 6:
CHOOSE DATA DIRECTORY
IMPORTANT: When starting for the very first time you may see a message pop up at this
point asking you where you want to store the database files. Clock Real Time needs to create
the following database files:
The files listed above are necessary for program operation. If you see a box to browse to
directories like the following choose the directory where you installed Clock Real Time:
13
Browse for folder on Windows XP™
Browse for folder on Windows Vista® or Windows 7®
LOCAL: If Clock Real Time is going to be run from one computer at one station, POINT
TO THE DIRECTORY WHERE YOU INSTALLED, locally:
C:\Program Files\Kneson\Clock Real Time.
NETWORK: If Clock Real Time data needs to be accessed across a local network for
example if you want to install Clock Real Time Monitor on a remote computer or install
more than one clock-in / clock-out location POINT TO THE DIRECTORY WHERE YOU
INSTALLED on your network:
N:\Kneson\Clock Real Time.
… where N:is the network path where you want to store Clock Real Time data and
:\Kneson\Clock Real Time is just a suggestion to assist identification..
Remember, this location can be anywhere and you should note where it is.
14
STEP 7:
ACTIVATE CLOCK REAL TIME
After choosing the data directory an activation screen will appear like the following:
You will need your activation files to activate. They are located on your installation CD with
the following names:
D:\CRT_MANAGER_[order number].txt
D:\CRT_MONITOR_[order number].txt
D: \CRT_SCANNER_[order number].txt
Locate these files and open them in Wordpad.
ALL WINDOWS COMPUTERS HAVE WORDPAD.
DO NOT USE NOTEPAD FOR THIS STEP.
To start WordPad, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, WordPad.
15
STEP 8:
SHOW ACTIVATION CODE AND ACTIVATION WINDOW ON
SCREEN AT THE SAME TIME
Arrange your screen so that you can view at least part of the Activation window and ALL of
the Activation code in Wordpad at the same time.
STEP 9:
HIGHLIGHT, DRAG AND DROP ACTIVATION CODE ONTO
ACTIVATION SCREEN.
With your mouse, highlight all of the Activation code from the <Activation> tag to the
</Activation> tag, INCLUDING both <Activation> and </Activation> (start and include the
< in <Activation> and include the ending > in </Activation>).
Once all the Activation code is highlighted, holding down the left mouse button on top of
the highlighted text (making sure that ALL of the text remains highlighted) drag over to
anywhere in the Activation window. The cursor should change as shown below:
16
STEP 10:RELEASE THE LEFT MOUSE BUTTON.
All of the Activation field windows should proceed automatically. You will see the following
window:
17
STEP 11: CLICK 'OK' AND RESTART THE PROGRAM.
Once activated, the activation box will disappear without further instruction. Simply restart
the program - CRT Manager, CRT Monitor, or CRT Scanner that you just activated. You
must activate all three components to use them which is why there are three license files on
the installation CD.
IMPORTANT: When starting for the very first time you may see a message pop up and ask
you where you want to store the database files. Clock Real Time needs to create the
following database files:
18
The files listed above are necessary for program operation. If you see a box to browse to
directories like the following choose the directory where you installed Clock Real Time:
Browse for folder on Windows XP™
Browse for folder on Windows Vista® or Windows 7®
POINT TO THE DIRECTORY WHERE YOU INSTALLED, typically:

Quick Start Welcome to Clock Real Time by Kneson Software!
Get started using Clock Real Time in minutes.
This example is going to show you how to quickly enter a
new employee into the system and manually clock them
in.
The first 6 steps refer to this screenshot:
21
Quick Start Easy Steps Open the Kneson Time Clock Manager and
immediately click on the PERSON tab.
Click on the New
button on the button
bar. This opens up a box to enter data about
the new employee.
Enter a unique code in the Nick Name box.
The "Nick Name" or Code must not be like
any other Nick Name or Code - it must be
unique.
This field is used for the unique employee number or code from your payroll
administrator or manager in charge of payroll. This is a text based field, meaning that
if you use numbers in this field, they will appear before letters for sorting purposes.
Also, fields of different lengths sort by values appearing first.
Enter employee data (pink section above). Enter Last Name, First Name, Birth Date
(click the down arrow to choose date from calendar or type in values), Social Security
Number (if needed), Cell phone number, E-mail address and date employment begins.
22
Enter Department, Position and Contract. This is the yellow (bottom) section in the
above screenshot. Click the Red
Down Arrow next to each to select.
Clock Real Time provides complete time and attendance tracking for the smallest
business to large corporations. Depending on the needs and size of your business, if
you don’t need tracking, reporting or sorting based on Departments, Positions or
Contracts simply don’t input a value for these when setting up employees. Clock Real
Time ALWAYS of course tracks time and attendance; you select how “granular” or
by what other functions you need tracked.
For example, many small businesses don’t have “Departments” – a company of 5 or so
employees may not need Departments assigned to employees. Skip this for all
employees but remember: if your company grows large enough to have Departments
such as “Marketing,” “Accounting,” “Office staff,” etc., you have the ability to use
Clock Real Time in the future to optimize time and attendance based on Departments.
This is true for Contracts and Positions as well.
Note: You can Insert, Delete and Edit the Department, Position and Contract items
by clicking the buttons on the side in the box that appears when you click the Red
Down Arrow:
23
For example, clicking the Red
Down Arrow by Department shows the screen
above. From here, you could Create a New (Insert) Department type if the one you
need isn't listed or Update, Delete, Copy etc without having to leave this screen. This
gives the user flexibility to maintain the system from all locations within the various
Clock Real Time function boxes.
Click OK
Congratulations! You've just entered a new employee into the system!
Let's continue. Now let's clock the new employee in for the first time. The following
Quick Start steps refer to the CLOCK screen:
24
Now click on the Clock tab in the Time Clock Manager.
Click on the New
button on the button bar. This opens up a box to enter
specifics of this Clocking.
Click the Red
Down Arrow next to Person. This will bring up a new screen:
25
Notice the Person highlighted above is the Person we just input into the system.
Highlight the Person you want to clock in and click the
the side (double-clicking on their listing has the same effect).
To clock in or out, select the date and time by clicking the Black
Arrow next to Time:
button on
Down
Clicking on today's date automatically inputs the current date and time. Both are
manually editable - you can manually type in the date and time.
26
Click the Black
Down Arrow next to Action to choose 'In' or 'Out.' Choose
'In' to clock the employee in manually. Skip the Card section for now. Cards
and Card Types are discussed in the section "CARD TYPE" beginning on page
121.
Enter a comment or leave blank. IMPORTANT! Use Comment and
Descriptions boxes! Be as detailed as possible when entering data. This makes
searching for items much faster.
Click OK.
That’s it! You've just entered a new employee
and clocked them in manually. To clock this
person out of the system manually, repeat the
steps 7-14 but select "Out" at Step 12.
Normally, steps 7-14 are handled automatically
by the employees themselves in the system.
Instead of manually clocking employees in or
out, they use magnetic strip swipe cards for
identification. See the next section to attach
CARDS to employees.

Quick Start 2 ­ Setting Up Cards This section will show you how to attach
magnetic swipe cards to employees in minutes.
Inside the box that shipped to you find one card
reader or magnetic card swipe scanner.
Magnetic Strip Swipe Scanner
(can be black or appear differently than the above picture)
Steps With no Clock Real Time component running plug the swipe card
reader into an open USB port on your computer. The computer
should instantly recognize the swipe card reader hardware.
Then start Clock Real Time Scanner by selecting it from the
Program List or clicking on its icon.
29
Click Extra, Setup.
Make sure that the “MagTek Swipe Card Reader – HID-compliant device”
appears and that the box is checked.
Click OK
ASSOCIATE CARDS WITH PERSONS Next, we need to associate cards swiped into the system with Persons.
With only Clock Real Time Scanner running (Clock Real Time Manager and
Clock Real Time Monitor are closed) choose a magnetic strip card and swipe it
through the swipe card reader.
30
When you swipe a card the upper circle will briefly turn red and the system will
make an acknowledging tone.
Now open Clock Real Time Manager and click on the Scan tab at the far right
end.
Select (highlight) the card entry that most recently showed up in the left side
panel of the Scan tab.
31
Click the Red
Down Arrow next to Person and Select, Edit (Update), Insert
(New) or Copy a Person. To get started quickly, simply click the PERSON you
created in Quick Start from page 21 above.
Note: You can Insert (New), Update (Edit), Delete, Copy, Sort and Search
PERSON records by clicking the buttons on the side in the box that appears
when you click the Red
Down Arrow:
From here, you can Create a New (Insert) PERSON if the one you need isn't
listed, or Edit (Update) an existing PERSON and so on. This saves time so you
don't have to close out of your current entry to enter new information in another
Tab.
32
Select CARD type. Click the Red
Down Arrow next to Card Type and
Select, Edit (Update), Insert (New) or Copy a Card Type:
Note: You can Insert (New), Update (Edit), Delete, Copy, Sort and Search
CARD TYPES records by clicking the buttons on the side in the box that
appears when you click the Red
Down Arrow. (sub-sub dialog box not
shown). When you have selected the card type for this card, click Select.
Select Today’s Date. Click the Black
Down Arrow next to Time brings up
a calendar. Select or manually enter the Date this CARD is being entered.
Tip: with either the HH or MM sets of numbers highlighted, type the UP or
33
DOWN arrow on the keyboard to scroll values without typing numbers. Type the
LEFT and RIGHT arrows to move to the next field.
Enter Comment or leave blank. IMPORTANT! Use Comment boxes! Be as
detailed as possible when entering Comments. This makes searching for items in
the future much faster.
Click Associate. Once you have highlighted the card in the left panel, selected
the Person, Card type and Date, then clicked the ‘Associate’ button, you have
attached a CARD to a PERSON in the Clock Real Time system. This PERSON
can now use this CARD to Clock In and Out.
EXAMPLE: At various points in this manual, we describe a fictitious example
of a restaurant manager with seven employees named "Roy Biv." In the example
above we’ve associated a swiped card to his dishwasher “Neil Smith” as a
Company Issued card on 3/6/2009 at 12:18 PM.
Examples of how this manager and his employees use the Clock Real Time
system are included to improve the speed and quality of your understanding of
how to get the most out of Clock Real Time.
34
NOTE: Almost any magnetic strip swipe card can be used BUT SHOULD BE DONE
WITH CARE.
Yes, with Clock Real Time almost any magnetic strip swipe card can be used. Scans when the
Clock Real Time Scanner is open will log in the Clock Real Time Manager’s Scan tab:
Manager Biv, Roy
Bartender Sinclair, Dan
Chef Kline, John
Waiter Nelson, Paul
Deli Chef Johnson, Hank
Accountant Nolan, Jenny
Busperson Anderson, Fred
Data on credit cards swiped in do “live” in the Clock Real Time system. It is unlikely that this
information could be used without authorization of the card owner because Clock Real Time
does not record all the data necessary for illegal use, but certain sensitive information can be
35
exposed. If your work environment is run by multiple people or is for any reason less than
secure, try to use non-monetary based club cards or order extra blank plastic cards from Kneson

Last things first . . .
Quick Start 3 ­ Employee Time Management This section will get you using the most advanced
features of Clock Real Time in minutes.
This example is going to show you how to quickly
maintain employees or members (PERSONs) in the
system along with how Clock Real Time knows or
identifies them (CARDS) and their attendance events
(CLOCK) all on one screen.
This is performed on the PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK
Tab in the Clock Real Time Manager:
The PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Screen in Clock Real Time is enormous. The entire screen if
enlarged to full view and columns widened to show all data would not fit on most computer
screens. You would need two monitors (or a wide screen monitor) to view the
PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Tab this way. See Figure 1: PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK FULL
SCREEN on page 40 for a full screen view of the PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK screen.
To work with the PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Tab on most screens, use the positioning bars
inside Clock Real Time Manager. This allows you to use the program on just a part of the screen
as needed.
If you use Clock Real Time to take up less of the screen, it is likely that you won't be able to
see that you have the PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Tab unless you use the Tab scroll arrow at
the top of the screen:
37
38
Notice that the PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Tab is split into three sections:
39
40
Figure 1: PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK FULL SCREEN
PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Screen Resizing The PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Tab interior screen is amazingly flexible - more so than you
may be used to. In the PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Tab, you can change the screen by resizing
windows inside the Tab. When you put your mouse over the section dividers, the cursor changes
to show you which way you can resize windows:
Cursor change shows you can move the
interior window border horizontally
Cursor change shows you can move the
interior window border vertically
When you see the cursor change to one of these symbols, move the column or row as far as
possible and see the effect. You can make each section cover up all other sections by moving
the column or row guides.
You will know that one or more of the PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK screens are covering up
others by the broken column or row line. A broken edge at any row or column indicates hidden
screens:
Row edge changes shows hidden window
Column edge change shows hidden window
Play around with resizing the interior screen of the PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Tab to see just
how flexible you can make it. On a day-to-day basis, the PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Tab is all
you will need to manage normal time and attendance events inside Clock Real Time.
41
To illustrate use of the PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Tab consider the following example:
A small restaurant owner named "Roy Biv" wants to keep track of his employee time. He has the
following people working for him:

Chef - Dan Sinclair

Busperson - Fred Anderson

Deli Chef - Hank Johnson

Dishwasher - Neil Smith

Bartender - John Kline

Accountant - Jenny Nolan

Waiter - Paul Nelson

Manager - Roy Biv
Roy installs Clock Real Time and clocks himself in. After going through Quick Start 1, he clicks
on the PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Tab and begins inputting data. Roy starts with the PERSON
section:
New PERSON Creates new PERSON listing. Click the new icon and enter the new PERSON
information. Enter a unique code in the Nick Name box. The "Nick Name" in PERSON
must not be like any other Nick Name. Enter Last Name, First Name, Birth Date,
Social Security Number (if needed), Cell phone number, E-mail address and date
employment begins.
Select Department, Position and Contract. Click the Red Down Arrow by each to select.
42
Note: Many screens take you to a box that still gives you maximum flexibility. You can
Insert (same as New), Update (Edit), Delete and Copy the Department, Position and
Contract items by clicking the buttons on the side in the box that appears when you
click the Red Down Arrows. Click Select in these boxes and OK when finished.
In our example, Roy would begin entering his employees one by one as they arrived to
work on the first day by clicking the New button in the PERSON section. After entering
their personal information, he would assign each employee a DEPARTMENT (for
example, "Kitchen" for kitchen staff), a POSITION (for example, Chef) and a
CONTRACT (full time, part time, etc.)
Step-by-step instructions and screenshots: New PERSON on page 111
Edit PERSON Edits existing PERSON record. The steps here are exactly like the New PERSON
instructions above, only first you highlight the record you want to edit and click the Edit
button. If Roy makes a mistake, he highlights the PERSON record and clicks the Edit
button to change existing information.
Step-by-step instructions and screenshots: Edit PERSON on page 113
Delete PERSON Deletes highlighted PERSON record. Click the Delete button to remove a PERSON.
Be careful! - there is no undo function for this action. If Roy fired someone he would
delete that PERSON. Also, if Roy entered a new employee and someone else entered
information for the same PERSON, one would be deleted.
Step-by-step instructions and screenshots: Delete PERSON on page 115
43
Copy PERSON Copies highlighted PERSON with new Nick Name
entry. Highlight the PERSON record you want to Copy
and click the Copy button. Enter a new, unique Nick
Name. IMPORTANT! The only item that must be
different to make a copy is the Nick Name. No two
records can have the same Nick Name in the PERSONs
records.
All other fields here could be left exactly the same, and
all are editable. Change the PERSON Last Name, First
Name, Birth Date, Social Security Number, Cell phone
number, E mail address and date employment begins as
needed.
Edit Department, Position and Contract. Click the Red Down Arrow by each to select.
Note: Clicking the Red Down Arrow next to Department, Position or Contract brings
up a box that allows you to Create a New (Insert) record, Edit (Update) an existing
record, etc. This saves time so you don't have to close out of your current entry to enter
new information in another tab. Click Select in these boxes and OK when finished.
The restaurant manager Roy would use this command to create a new employee record
that had similar information to an existing record.
Step-by-step instructions and screenshots: Copy PERSON on page 116
Sort PERSON Sort PERSON Forward from top to bottom. Click this button to Sort the list
alphabetically from A to Z. In PERSON you can sort by Family Name (Last Name),
Nick Name (unique code), Birth Date, City, Zip Code, Clocked In / Out status,
Department or Position.
Sort PERSON Backwards from bottom to top. The lower Z-A button reverses the
effect of the Sort Forward button for the item selected.
Step-by-step instructions and screenshots: Sort PERSON on page 118
Jump to PERSON Jump to PERSON record. Click this button to
jump immediately to the PERSON whose column
value is sorted (light grey arrow). This field is used
to quickly jump to a record in a long list.
Jump is a dynamic function under all Tabs. The
44
Jump function "jumps to" a value that depends on
which column heading you have clicked.
For example, when the PERSON table "Last Name" column is clicked (light grey arrow
appears in column heading), Jump will ask for a "Last Name" to jump to and so on for
NICKNAME, BIRTH DATE, DEPARTMENT and POSITION.
Other tables can have different values which can be directly jumped to using the Jump
button. All Tabs in the system will always jump based on which column heading is
sorted or which column heading has the light grey arrow (circled in screenshot). If the
value input in the Jump dialog box does not exist, the program will Jump to the first
smaller value or the first larger value depending on which is found first.
Step-by-step instructions and screenshots: PERSON Tab Jump on page 119
Search PERSON Search for any information in PERSON data. Click the Search button to search all
PERSON records for any data in the PERSON screens. For example, Roy can search
for any data in a PERSON record from a birth date to an e-mail address.
Step-by-step instructions and screenshots: Search PERSON on page 120
New CARDS Creates new CARD listing. Click the new icon and enter the new CARD information.
Click the Red Down Arrow next to Person and Select, Edit (Update), Insert (New) or
Copy a Person. Note: You can Insert (New), Update (Edit), Delete, Copy, Sort and
Search PERSON records by clicking the buttons on the side in the box that appears
when you click the Red Down Arrows.
Click the Red Down Arrow next to Card Type and Select, Edit (Update), Insert (New)
or Copy a Card Type.
45
Swipe CARD to enter ID. You can:

Use any card that has a magnetic strip

Place cursor in CARD ID field, swipe, and that
card is now attached to the employee (PERSON)
and available for use to clock in and out.
CARD IDs must be unique - the card reader will read only
one unique ID per card.
Enter Date and Time from the calendar or type it in the date and time fields manually.
Tip: with either the HH or MM sets of numbers highlighted, type the UP or DOWN
arrow on the keyboard to scroll values without typing numbers. Type the LEFT and
RIGHT arrows to move to the next field.
Enter Comment or leave blank. IMPORTANT! Use Comment boxes! Be as detailed as
possible when entering Comments. This makes searching for items much faster. Click
OK.
When employees arrive the first day of using Clock Real Time, Roy goes to the CARDS
section of the PERSON/CARDS/CLOCK Tab to enter new CARD information for each
employee he is setting up. Employees are either issued company swipe cards (available
from http://www.clockrealtime.com) or they use CARDs in their wallets to identify
them. Some employees enter several CARDs into the system so they always have a way
to clock in and out.
Step-by-step instructions and screenshots: New CARD on page 136
Edit CARD Edits existing CARD information. The steps
here are exactly the same as for the New
command, except you highlight a record to
Edit first. Then click the Edit button and
change an existing CARD record's
information: Person, Card Type, Card ID
(must be unique for every card), Time entered
and a comment.
46
To change CARD ID using the card swipe machine:

Highlight all of the last entry in the CARD ID field
and delete it.

Place cursor in CARD ID field, swipe, and that
new CARD is recorded for use to clock in and out.
CARD IDs must be unique - the card reader will read only
one unique ID per card.
Roy would use this command if he made a mistake in any of the records as he was
entering them on the first day or whenever it was discovered that a CARDs data was
incorrect or not up-to-date. Both chefs and the bartender use their Driver's Licenses in
the system, the accountant Jenny uses an old expired gift card (yes, even those work
with Clock Real Time!). The rest were issued company cards with unique IDs all of
which the manager scanned in making sure the CARD ID field was empty and that the
cursor was placed in this field before swiping.
Step-by-step instructions and screenshots: Edit CARD on page 140
Delete CARD Deletes highlighted CARD record. Click the Delete button to remove a CARD. Be
careful! - there is no undo function for this action. Roy would use this command if an
employee informed him that a CARD was lost or no longer useable.
Step-by-step instructions and screenshots: Delete CARD on page 144
Copy CARD Copies existing CARD information. Click the Copy button to Copy the CARD to a
new item. To change Person, click the Red Down Arrow next to Person and Select,
Edit (Update), Insert (New) or Copy a Person.
Note: You can Insert (New), Update (Edit), Delete, Copy, Sort and Search PERSON
records by clicking the buttons on the side in the box that appears when you click the
Red Down Arrow. Change CARD TYPE as needed.
47
To copy a new CARD using previous entry with the card
swipe machine:

Highlight all of the last entry in the CARD ID field
and delete it.

Place cursor in CARD ID field, swipe, and the
CARD of this PERSON is recorded for use to
clock in and out.
CARD IDs must be unique - the card reader will read only
one unique ID per card.
In our restaurant manager's example, he would highlight the record of an employee
that wanted to enter another card into the system that they brought from home. Roy the
manager would highlight a PERSON CARD, select the Copy button, clear the CARD ID
field, swipe the new card in and click OK .
Edit Time as needed. Tip: with either the HH or MM sets of numbers highlighted, type
the UP or DOWN arrow on the keyboard to scroll values without typing numbers. Type
the LEFT and RIGHT arrows to move to the next field.
Edit, Delete Comment or leave blank. IMPORTANT! Use Comment boxes! Be as
detailed as possible when entering Comments. This makes searching for items much
faster. Click OK.

Jump to CARDS Jump to CARD record. Click this button
to jump immediately to the CARD whose
column value is sorted (light grey arrow).
This field is used to quickly jump to a
record in a long list.
Jump is a dynamic function under all
Tabs. The Jump function "jumps to" a
value that depends on which column you
have clicked on to sort. For example,
when the CARD table "PERSON" column is clicked (light grey arrow appears in
column heading), Jump will ask for a "PERSON" to jump to and so on for CARD
TYPE and CARD ID.
Clicking on the CARD TYPE column brings up a CARD TYPE jump box. When
CARD ID column is selected, Jump brings up a CARD ID jump box. Note: Make sure
to delete the data in the Card ID field before swiping new data in.
In other tables other indexes/sort orders exists which can be directly jumped to. All
Tabs in the system will always jump based on a value specified by which column is
sorted or which column heading has the light grey arrow (circled in above screenshots).
If the value input in the Jump dialog box does not exist, the program will Jump to the
first smaller value or the first larger value depending on which is found first.

Overview Clock Real Time by Kneson Software is the easiest and fastest way to gain immediate control of
employee or member attendance. Clock Real Time gives you immediate control of employee
time, often paying for itself many times over. Unlike traditional punch time clocks, Clock Real
Time can be used in the most professional work environments, and tracks and reports work
events by employee type, department, compensation contract or any combination of these.
Clock Real Time by Kneson Software is a sophisticated yet easy to use time clock that records
arrivals and departures of employees or members using issued, plastic cards like credit cards.
The owner or manager can immediately see an entire attendance profile for a department,
position or wage level.
Advantages 
Use in a Professional Environment.
Clock Real Time uses a credit card type
scanner connected to a computer through
a USB port to gather Clock-In and
Clock-Out events as employees arrive at
and leave work each day. Using a card
reader with issued employee cards (or
any card with a magnetic strip) allows
Clock Real Time to be used in even the most professional environments because using Clock
Real Time adds security to any company or organization as it tracks time events.

Use Almost Any Card. Clock Real Time can use manual Check-In and Check-Out of
employees, this however is generally not the preferred way to Check-In and Check-Out and
is only used in case an employee lost or forgot his electronic identification media. Clock
Real Time works with almost any electronic identification media that delivers some unique
identifier of up to 128 characters. Most often a Swipe Card Reader is used with employer
issued swipe cards which can be obtained at http://www.clockrealtime.com. However, the
same Swipe Card Reader can also read credit cards, debit cards, bank cards, basically any
credit card type card with a magnetic stripe!. As long as these cards input a unique identifier
these cards can be associated with a person and can be in Clock Real Time used to identify
that person.

Reduce Payroll Expense. Many companies that use Clock Real Time pay their employees
according to the time report, just the way companies that use a punch card time clock do.
Responsibility for clocking in and out is placed on employees and tracked by computer
instead of some form of human recording or estimated employee time reports. Using Clock
Real Time, Payroll Expense precisely reflects actual working time.

Save Management Time. Clock Real Time
puts responsibility for managing employee time
on the employee instead of on the manager or
61
owner. Now managers can relax knowing that Payroll will be accurate and human time
recording estimation and error eliminated. By issuing employee cards connected to the
system, Clock Real Time let's you manage all employee movement into and out of your
company automatically. In this way, Clock Real Time saves you money by precisely
measuring and reporting time on the job for all employees without your intervention.

Save Employee Time. If your employees spend time creating employee time reports, Clock
Real Time eliminates that task. Employees simply swipe their card on the way into and out
of work, and all work time is recorded.

Leverage the Power of Computers to Cut Payroll Costs Automatically. Kneson Clock Real
Time learns information in multiple screens automatically - all data is changeable from any
screen. Clock Real Time makes the computer perform all aspects of employee time
management and reduces human time to process employee time data to a fraction of normal
employee attendance processing time, and often the system requires no processing time.
Figure 2: Multiple Screen Example.
All data elements are always accessible from anywhere in the system.
In this help file, you will find explanations of the various functions of Clock Real Time program.
You can find help at any time by choosing 'Help' from the main menu or by pressing the F1 key.
Help screens inside the program can have various words or phrases underlined. Clicking on a
phrase takes you immediately to that related subject.
Clicking the 'Back' button brings you back
to the previous page that you have visited
(keep in mind this is not necessarily the
previous page in the structure of help
files).
Every company or organization has people
that fill three roles:
62
They work in one "division" or department of the company
They have a position of expertise they lend to that department
They have a contract specifying the amount and method they get paid
63

Clock Real Time Scanner The true power of Clock Real Time is in the use of
the scanner magnetic swipe cards like credit cards4
to record employee entrances and exits. Since
employees are responsible for clock IN and OUT
themselves, more accuracy is achieved and payroll
costs held to a minimum.
The Clock Real Time Manager manages data
coming in both from the Clock Real Time Scanner
and from manual input. This assures both
automation and the ability to keep attendance
records accurate.
Setting up Employees Setting up employees into the Clock Real Time system is described in the section entitled
"Quick Start 2 - Setting Up Cards" beginning on page 29 above.
Employee Clock Events Employee clock events are performed with the other scanner that was sent with the
system. Locate the scanner with the green "H" on the bottom and plug it in to the system.
The computer should instantly recognize the device.
Clock Event Steps IMPORTANT! THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURE ASSUMES AN EMPLOYEE'S
CARD HAS BEEN ENTERED INTO THE SYSTEM FOLLOWING THE
PROCEDURE IN Quick Start 2 - Setting Up Cards BEGINNING ON PAGE 29.
Otherwise the instructions in this section will not record clock events.
4
Kneson Software has generic magnetic card packs you can purchase. Visit http://www.clockrealtime.com/order.html and select the number
of "Clock Real Time - 20 Blank swipe cards" you need for your company.
68
Start Clock Real Time Scanner from the
program list or by clicking on the Scanner
icon.
The Clock Real Time Scanner will take over the screen.
Employees can now clock in and out by swiping any card that has been entered
into the system for them.
Setup HID Scanner
Click Extra, Setup to open the Scanner Setup window
Click ON the HID-compliant checkbox.

EXAMPLE: Continuing the restaurant manager example from Quick Start 3,
the DATE is August 19, 2006 at 6:33 PM. A restaurant manager named Roy
Biv is the last one to clock out of his restaurant. As he walks by the card
scanner, he swipes his card and sees the following briefly appear on the
Scanner monitor:
As soon as the manager swipes his card, Clock Real Time Scanner displays the
DATE, TIME and IN or OUT status under the clock, and the Time In, Time
Out, Total daily Duration then subtracts Break Time for a Grand Total along
the top row.
As long as this is the correct event (clocking out), nothing else needs to be
done. If this is an incorrect event (for example, if he had forgotten to clock in
that morning and the screen said "In" instead of "Out") he would need to go
into the CRT Manager to the PERSONS/CARDS/CLOCK tab to change the
event.
The PERSONS/CARDS/CLOCK tab
is discussed in detail in the section
entitled "Quick Start 3 - Employee
Time Management beginning on page 37 above.

Clock Real Time Monitor The Clock Real Time Monitor shows you the immediate status of your employees at a glance.
Clock Real Time Monitor can show you the status of all employees in your organization, even
remote locations. Any computer or workstation needing to show that status of employees must
be licensed with the Clock Real Time Monitor software.
When you start the Clock Real Time Monitor for the first time, it may be an empty or almost
empty window. This is because Clock Real Time Monitor monitors employees after they've
been entered into the Clock Real Time Manager.
EXAMPLE: To illustrate the use of Clock Real Time Monitor, we are going to continue our
example of a restaurant manager named Roy Biv that has seven employees in a small daytime
restaurant we introduced earlier.
In this example, the manager, Roy Biv looks at the Clock Real Time Monitor from a private
office on August 19, 2006 at 6:05 PM and notices two employees still clocked into the system.
72
Notice the events in the Action column. The Action column shows the last event that occurred
for everyone in the system.
As you can see, the only two people logged in to the system as shown by the last Action being
"In" are "John Kline" the chef and the manager. This allows the manager to know who is
clocked in and can take any necessary action based on attendance needed to make sure he has
full staff when needed and everyonce clocked to save payroll costs when closed.
Our example restaurant is a daytime only establishment and closes promptly at 6 PM. Roy the
manager calls the kitchen to find out why the chef is still working and finds out John Kline the
chef has unloading to do before leaving that will take about five more minutes. Five minutes
later, at 6:10 Roy immediately sees the chef clock out at the moment he leaves:
73
This leaves only the manager himself clocked in. The next morning, if he is the first one at work,
he will be able to see employees clock in as they arrive in real time.

Section 1: Setup Tabs This section discusses the first 9 SETUP TABS:
You can measure attendance and see reports on any of these characteristics. For example, if you
have a small company that does not have DEPARTMENTS or divisions, you can measure
attendance only by POSITION and CONTRACT. If you have a non-profit organization where
76
you don't pay salary or wages, you can measure attendance by DEPARTMENT and POSITION
only. Clock Real Time puts you in control of your employee (or member) time, based on any or
all of these characteristics automatically.
77
DEPARTMENT Tab Clock Real Time comes with four typical DEPARTMENTS already set up, Management, Sales,
Marketing and R&D. You can use the buttons or the right mouse menu to add, edit or delete
DEPARTMENTS that match your company or organization.
Example DEPARTMENTs: Management
Sales
R&D
For example, many small companies probably do not have an "R&D" DEPARTMENT, but they
might have a "Customer Service" DEPARTMENT. You can add or edit existing
DEPARTMENTS as needed.
Click the DEPARTMENT tab and add or edit the entries using the Time Clock Manager buttons:
78
New DEPARTMENT Creates new DEPARTMENT listing. Click the new icon and enter the new
DEPARTMENT information.

83
DEPARTMENT Tab Jump !JD
Jump to DEPARTMENT record. Click this button to jump immediately to the
DEPARTMENT whose column value you know. This field is used to quickly jump to
a record in a long list.
Jump is a dynamic function under all Tabs. The Jump function "jumps to" a value that
depends on which column you have clicked on to sort.
For example, when the DEPARTMENT table "Code" column is clicked (light grey
arrow appears in column heading), Jump will ask for a "Code" to jump to:
Mouse click on the
Code column
Click the Jump
button
Code Jump box
appears
When the DEPARTMENT table "Short Description" column is clicked (light grey

POSITION Tab Clock Real Time comes with four example POSITIONS set up. These need to be edited and
added to according to the specific POSITION, title or function of people in your organization.
You can use the buttons or the right mouse menu to add, edit or delete POSITIONS that match
your company or organization.
Example Positions: Programmer
Construction Roofer
Salesperson
There are as many different POSITIONS as there are jobs. Click on the POSITIONS tab and
create (add or edit) an entry for every position for all the people in your company.
For example, many small companies probably do not have a "Sales Specialist" POSITION, but if
they are a construction company they might have a POSITION for construction workers that
build roofs called "Construction Roofer." You would then Edit the "Sales Specialist" POSITION
that is already listed under the POSITION tab and change it to "Construction Roofer." Add, Edit
or Copy other POSITIONS as needed.

Search POSITION Search for any POSITION text. Click this button to search all records and all Short and
Long Descriptions to find a POSITION record.
The Search function in Clock Real Time is extremely powerful. It will find any text
anywhere in a record, and it will find by partial wording as in the above example.
94
LOCATION Tab The Location Tab is currently reserved for future functionality.
Planned development will include the ability to record time and
attendance events as they occur in different building locations
should that be important to your business or use of Clock Real
Time.
The Location tab in the software is functional now to the extent
that locations can be set up inside Clock Real Time manager, but
the card readers and reporting tools are not yet aware of this
functionality. Let us know if this is important for your company
by writing to Kneson Software at [email protected] This will
help let us know how needed this is by our customers and will
assist us in focusing development priority for this functionality.
The LOCATION Tab:
95
ROUND Tab Time ROUNDing is intended to round
times up or down to specific time
intervals for reporting purposes. For
example, when "Clock In" rounding is
set as:
Lower Bound: 08:25
Upper Bound: 08:35
Clock Real Time will Round To: 08:30
When a person clocks in at 08:25:01
the Clock table will show the time as
08:25:01, but in the reports the time
will be rounded to 08:30.
When a person clocks in at 08:29:59 the Clock table will show the time as08:29:59, but in the
reports the time will be rounded to 08:30.
Times are only rounded for reporting and not for recording. Clock Real Time always keeps
precise "to-the-second" records of time events for accuracy reasons. Rounding for reporting
assists in calculating hourly wages more easily.
Click on the ROUND tab:
96
The Lower Bound and Upper Bound times are the boundaries of the ROUNDing period you
want to set. Clock Real Time comes with rounding values as shown above. You can see in the
first listing for example that anyone clocking in between 8:25 AM and 8:35 AM would be
reported from the system as having clocked in at 8:30 AM. If you have hourly employees, this
will smooth out your accounting and payroll calculations.
ALL TIME MANAGER BUTTONS WORK THE SAME. You can create New ROUNDing
profiles, Edit existing ones, Delete ROUNDings, Copy, Sort and Search ROUNDing entries.
97
Delete entries that do not pertain to
your reporting needs. Go through the
list one-by-one and delete any
ROUNDing entries that you do not
want to affect your employee time
reports.
98
CONTRACT Tab CONTRACTs are agreements between employer and employee about how and when employees
are paid. Employees can be paid full time, part time or no time (volunteer or intern). Clock Real
Time let's you measure employees or members and total the amount everyone should get paid.
In this way, Clock Real Time saves you money by more accurately keeping track of employee
time.
Example CONTRACTS: Salary
Hourly
Commission
Clock Real Time comes with the most common CONTRACTs for most companies - Full Time,
Part Time and "0 Hours" for employees that are not paid based on time. This is used for
commission salespeople (their compensation is calculated from their sales) or for volunteers or
members that are not being paid. Click on the CONTRACTs tab:
Notice now that there are two sets of buttons, one set on the left under CONTRACTS and the set
on the right under BREAK TIMES.
99
Clicking the CONTRACTS tab splits the lower window into two screens with two sets of buttons
side by side. Highlighting a CONTRACT on the left side activates the buttons on the left:
Each side has its own Edit buttons. Once you have the CONTRACT you want highlighted, use
the Edit buttons or click on a BREAK TIME to activate the right side buttons:

number to 40:00 and Clock Real Time
will not allow anyone to have more
time clocked in than 40 hours. You can
do the same with the Month.
Enter the daily time limits for this CONTRACT. Typically, Full Time
would have 40:00 in the Week section (see #3 above) and 08:00 in each of
the Weekdays from Monday - Friday with the weekends having 00:00
entered.
In this example, we input 04:00 for Saturday and Sunday to create a
CONTRACT type for cleaning and landscaping employees.
Select Work Time flexibility. Select Variable if employees can work a less
amount of time than the daily limits. Select Fixed if everyone works the
amount of hours set in the daily time limits that are set in #4 above.
Input the Overtime Indication amount. This is the number of hours before
Clock Real Time defines the CONTRACT as being in a state of Over Time.
Enter Description or leave blank. IMPORTANT! Use Descriptions boxes!
Be as detailed as possible when entering descriptions. This makes searching
for items much faster.
Click OK. You have now set up a new CONTRACT type.

PERSON Tab Jump !J
Jump to PERSON record. Click this button to jump immediately to the PERSON
whose column value is sorted (light grey arrow). This field is used to quickly jump to
a record in a long list.
Jump is a dynamic function under all Tabs. The Jump function "jumps to" a value that
depends on which column you have clicked on to sort.
For example, when the PERSON table "NICK NAME" column is clicked (light grey
arrow appears in column heading), Jump will ask for a "NICK NAME" to jump to and
so on for LAST NAME, BIRTH DATE, DEPARTMENT and POSITION:
When NICK NAME column is selected, Jump
brings up a NICK NAME search box
When LAST NAME column is selected, Jump
brings up a LAST NAME search box
When BIRTH DATE column is selected, Jump
brings up a BIRTH DATE search calendar
When DEPARTMENT column is selected,
Jump brings up a DEPARTMENT search box
When POSITION column is selected, Jump brings up a POSITION search box also (not shown)
In other tables other indexes/sort orders exists which can be directly jumped to. All
Tabs in the system will always jump based on a value specified by which column is
119
sorted or which column heading has the light grey arrow (circled in above
screenshots). If the value input in the Jump dialog box does not exist, the program will
Jump to the first smaller value or the first larger value depending on which is found
first.

CARDS Tab The CARDs Tab associates various CARD
TYPES with PERSONS and records the
CARD IDs for the card being used. Clock
Real Time can use issued CARDS or
CARDS the employee is already carrying.
Click the CARDS Tab on the Tab bar:
When a New Employee is entered into the system, they are either issued a company card (which
you can purchase from Kneson Software) or the ID of the card that is going to be used should be
entered here using the CARDS buttons.
The CARDS Tab is the listing of all IDs in the system. No two CARD IDs can be the same
because there should be only one CARD being used by each person. Whether it is a credit card
of the employee or a company issued card, the system must have a unique ID (identification
number) for each card. In the case of an employee using their own credit card, the CARD ID is
the credit card number (without expiration date, etc. - just the 12 or so numbers on the front of
the card).
One employee can have multiple cards in the system. They could for example enter the CARD
ID of two of their credit cards to make sure they always have one of them with them when they
come to work.
However, two employees cannot have the same CARD. Each CARD, whether issued by the
company or owned by the employee has a unique ID. Two cards with the same ID rarely if ever
(and should not) exist.
