Before you start to add any of your staff onto the fingerprint reader make a note of their employee number. Explain to staff that as soon as they are registered onto the facial reader they will need to scan in and out for the start and end of their shift. They will also need to scan in and out for any breaks they take.
Shopworks collects time and attendance information from your fingerprint reader. This device has an easy to use interface and adding staff onto the device can be done by following this simple process. There are two types of user levels on the device, Normal Users and Super Admins. Ordinary users are only granted the rights of face verification, while administrators are granted access to the main menu for various operations as well as rights granted to ordinary users.
Follow this simple, step-by-step guide to add a new user to your fingerprint reader:
Menu -> User Mgt. -> New User -> User ID
User ID – Input the staff members employee/payroll number & press OK to confirm the User ID
Please Note: The user ID cannot be modified and in the case of an incorrect employee number being added the staff member will need to be deleted and re-registered using the correct employee number.
Using the Keypad, individually select the letters in the name using the keyboard. Once you have entered their name, click OK to confirm which will return you to the User details screen
The device will ask the staff member to present their chosen finger onto the reader. Following the readers' instructions, the staff member will need to place their fingerprint on the scanner three times. The device will acknowledge this once the actions have been successfully completed, and then return to the User details interface. Press the ‘ESC’ button to leave and save the user.
Select “User Role”
The User access is set to ‘Normal User’ as a default setting –do not change this unless the user is a manager. If you need to a change the role of a staff member from User to administrator, then press User Role and select the ‘Super Admin’ option
How to lock fingerprint readers to prevent staff from accessing the menu screen.
Access to the user menu is already pre-locked once a super admin has been registered on the device. This will prevent anyone from accessing the Menu functions. When the menu button is pressed, a padlock will be shown on the screen. To unlock the menu someone with administrator rights will need to scan their fingerprint on the reader.
To edit a user’s information or to delete a user select Menu then User mgt. Go to All users and select the staff member from the user list whose information needs to be deleted or edited in any of the sections.
