Now that you have set your time clock and associated it with your account, you can start using your time clock to perform punches. (If you have not set up your time clock yet, click here.)
Time Clock Punching with Quick Punching provides employees with the 'most likely' punch option, based on the employee's current status. This feature will help employees quickly and easily perform the correct punch option, along with reducing the number of errors that occur from the time clock.
To perform a Time Clock Punch the employee will authenticate with one of the following methods:
- PIN - Enter pin number (configure in your account)
- RFID - Scan your badge (configured in your account)
- Fingerprint - Scan your fingerprint (configured in your time clock)

If the employee's current status is Punched In
If the employee's current status is On Meal
Selecting 'All' will disable the Quick Punching feature, providing the employee with all available punch options. Below is an example of what your employee can expect with Quick Punching disabled:
