The Timeero Terminal (our kiosk app), works on a tablet and is used for time tracking. It works in an office environment or for on-the-go workers. Employees clock in with a unique pin and we also offer facial recognition which is the best way to prevent buddy punching. It's easy to use and set up takes only a few minutes.
Before using the kiosk app, the Admin will need to assign a pin # to each user/employee. Pin #'s can be assigned in the user profile by logging into the web portal and opening the Employees menu.
If you are using the facial recognition feature, you will want to upload the user's photo on his/her profile page, as well as turn on Require Face Recognition for employees to clock in under Company Settings.
To download the kiosk app to your iPad, head on over to the app store and search for Timeero Terminal.
Once the app is installed, only Admins and Managers have access to log into the app to get things going for the day.
Users with an Employee role designation will not be allowed to log into the app.
After logging in, you will be taken to the home page.
From here, tap on Proceed. Next, you will see the list of all users. To clock in, simply find & select your name from the list.
Once a user is selected, he/she will be prompted to enter his/her unique pin #. Pin #'s are assigned by Admins on the Employees page of the web portal.
After entering your pin #, you will be able to clock in. Depending on your company's settings, you may be required to select a job to clock into. Once a user clocks in, the home page will re-appear and the next user will need to tap Proceed to continue.
Using facial recognition
Turn on this feature by logging into the web portal and accessing Company Settings > General > Require Face Recognition for employees to clock in.
We recommend uploading employee photos to their profile before you start using the kiosk app.
Photos can be uploaded to the user profile by opening the Employees page & then clicking the pencil icon to edit the profile.
If a photo is not uploaded prior to clocking into the kiosk app, the first time the user does clock into the kiosk app, he/she will be prompted to take a photo and moving forward, that photo will be used for clocking in with facial recognition.
If there is a face/photo mismatch, the user will not be blocked from clocking in. Instead, an email will be sent to the Admin with the subject line Face Mismatch Detected.
