    PalmTrac 100 WIFI


     1. Is this version LAN capable?

    Yes, the Model PalmTrac 100 WIFI is also LAN capable. More information is on the specifications page.


     2. How do I connect the Time Clock to my PC?

    If your Time Clock has WIFI - WIFI is easiest. In the professional world, if you have WIFI on the Time Clock and you have a suitable WIFI  network on your premises, then program the Time Clock in the ‘WIFI settings’ to connect the Time Clock to your network (just like the WIFI on you mobile phone). Then do the same on the PC/server that has  your ‘hardware controller’ software installed.

    If you only have one PC then connect to the WIFI on that as above, but the software must be installed on same PC. 

    If your Time Clock only has TCP/IP (ethernet), then you would normally connect the Time Clock, using the ethernet cable, to a spare network point or direct to a router, program the Time Clock, just like above, but in the ‘TCP/IP settings’ of the Time Clock.

    In theory, when you set up the setting on a Time Clock on a network, you give the Time Clock an IP address and sometimes a password. This is just like moving into a new home, you tell your friends your new address. At the PC or server, in our ‘Hardware Controller’ software you also enter that same IP address, like someone setting up SAT-NAV in their vehicle to find your home. 

    The Time Clock is now sitting in its new ‘virtual’ home waving a virtual flag saying ‘here I am’ and the hardware controller has the Time Clock address. So they can now talk to eah other. (Polling)


     3. Where should I install the software?

    Please see the above answer.


     4. Can I use some TCP/IP and some WIFI Time Clocks and control them with one piece of software?

    Yes you can.


     5. How do I install the software?

    The software installs automatically. Just follow the install instruction. When installing, you can abandon the install at any time if you change your mind about any option you have selected. It intelligent so you won’t break it and support can help if you go wrong.

    Helpful note:  When installing the software you must put the software on a PC that is going to use the software but you can put the database part of the software on a server or the same PC (your choice). You must put the database and ‘polling’ on a server if you intend to run multiple instances of the software. The install program will ask you where you want to put the database and ‘polling’.



     6. I have 8 premises in the USA. How can I connect the Time Clock to my office in Frisco, Dallas?

    You will need all those premises to be on the same network and the one that has the software installed. If this cannot be done then you can ask you support department to get you access to each of the premise networks via port forwarding. You simply get the IP network at the premises where the Time Clock is located, to access their network setup and open a port for you to so the software can access the data in the Time Clock. Then use that same information to program that into our hardware controller. 


     7. If I get the 25 employee version and later will need the 50 employee one, how can I do this? 

    You can increase employee levels at any time. This is usually done by an email.


     8. Does the Time Clock have a password to keep it locked from others accessing the settings?

    Yes, you can enter your own password for this. Always use text and not a finger, face tag or any other method. If that finger, face or tag leaves the business then you will have to call support to bypass the settings.


     9. What is a shift? 

    A shift is a set of working rules for a day.


     10. What is a shift pattern? 

    An arrangement of shifts over a pay period so you can accurately measure the hours worked. For example Shift 3 for Monday to Thursday (8.00am to 5.00pm), shift 5 for Friday (8.00am to 7.00pm), shift 7 for Saturday 8.00 to 1.00pm at double time and shift 8 Sunday, a non-working day.


     11. What does it mean when it says “max number of time clocks on system”? 

    What this means is the maximum number of clocking Time Clocks that the software can support at one PC. 

    Clients like to fit Time Clocks in each department store in their chain, or multiple Time Clocks on a work site, one at the front door, back door, office, 2 on the factory floor etc. The maximum number of Time Clocks allowed is stated on the specifications page.


     12. Can I turn off the auto deductions for not clocking out for lunch? 

    Yes, you can turn off auto deductions. 

    When you use this feature, the auto deduct can be configured for to deduct any amount of time in at a fixed time (drink break of 15 mins, at 10.00am no clocking required) or in a window of time (deduct 30 mins between 12.00pm and 2.00pm if employee does not clock for break). 


     13. What grace options are there?

    The grace options are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, and 30 minutes.


     14. Can I turn off grace options? 

    Yes, you can turn off grace options. 


     15. Can I turn off rounding time? 

    Yes, you can turn off rounding time.


     16. What roundings are there? 

    The roundings available are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, and 30 minutes.


     17. What pay periods are there? 

    The pay periods available are - Weekly, bi-weekly, 4 weekly and monthly. You can also compose your own pay period of any length of days. You can have some employees on bi-weekly and others on weekly. Suggestions are welcome


     18. Employees who work overtime must work a minimum of ½ an hour. Can the system do this? 

    Yes, the system can.


     19. Our lunch break is only ½ an hour. Can the system handle this? 

    Yes, the system most definitely can handle this.


     20. Some employees get 1/2 hour paid lunch, some get ½ unpaid lunch and some get 1 hour paid lunch. Can the system do all this?

    Yes the system can do all this.


     21. We give our employees 3 breaks a day, one for lunch and two for cigarette breaks.  I want to be able to deduct the lunch and cigarette breaks from their hours. Can I get the software to do this? 

    Yes, you can get the software to do this.


     22. If someone forgets to clock how can I fix that? 

    At the PC, authorized users can edit transactions.


     23. Will this device continue to work if I don’t get support? 

    Yes. The software will carry on working. 


     24. How much is support? 

    The cost of support depends on the system purchased and number of ‘live’ employees using it.


     25. What is included in the 12 months free support?  

    Support is to keep the software operating according to it specification. Support is for those who have tried to resolve a problem themselves. 


     26. What is the benefit of having more than one Time Clock? 

    You might need more than one Time Clock to save money - if you have a lot of employees that depart at the same time – you are paying them to queue up to clock -  save that by getting more Time Clocks. Also, some clients like one Time Clock for the office and one for the factory floor, so factory workers do not have to walk through office to clock. There are many reasons for multiple Time Clocks and best reasons come from clients. We know of users who have 8 clocking machines at one factory door to stop queueing.


     27. We have 150 employees and our HR gets inundated with requests for general verification of hours worked. I would like to automate this so the HR can easily send or print something. Do you have a solution? 

    Yes, we have a solution. Use the 200 version of the software. It has an automatic email option so you can send an employee time card report regularly, at fixed times, each selected day (usually evenings, or anytime you choose, no limits) to selected employees. It should reduce those requests and free up time for your HR employees.


     28. Some employee turn up an hour early and clock for work. How can we stop them from being paid for these hours? 

    You can stop employees being paid for these hours in the shift set up. You can stop time accumulating at start and end of a shift. 


     29. I have quite a few employees and they all work slightly different times and it takes my pay lady a long time to work out the hours. We want something that make this easier. Can you help? 

    Yes, we can help. Any model from 100 upwards has multiple shift options. You can have every employee on a different shift every day of the year. It really is versatile.


     30. What happens if the power goes off? Do I lose my information? 

    You should not lose any data. The Time Clock stores data even during power outages.


     31. We operate a 2 week pay period, but overtime is calculated weekly, we don’t pay daily overtime until 39 hours PER Mon- Fri workdays have been worked. We pay overtime on Saturday, but don’t want to unless the same 39 hours have been worked during the week. Can I get the software to do this? 

    Yes, the software can automatically do this. Overtime can be calculated daily, weekly or by pay period but can be ‘limited’ by rules. As an example, you reduce weekly overtime until ‘39 hours at standard rate’ are met. This feature can move any selected worked overtime from selected overtime rates to standard rate until 39 hours are hit.
    The 39 hours can be set in ‘overtime limits’ and the same goes for Saturday being paid overtime, ‘no overtime paid Saturday until 39 hours at standard rate achieved during Monday- Friday’. Great feature. 


     32. We operate different shifts, Monday to Thursday 8am – 6pm and Fridays 8am till 11pm, Saturdays 8am till 13.00 on fixed overtime for Saturday. Can I get the software to do this? 

    Yes you can get the software to do this. The software allows different a shift every day, each with its own pay rules.
