STX Beacon: Time Clock

The Time Clock feature in the Beacon system allows each worker to clock in and out each day, as many times as necessary, or apply scheduled hours to the time clock. 

Each clock entry is used when processing compensation and can be edited by the owner or any worker with the proper security permissions.

To use the Time Clock, start by clicking the Time Clock option in the Home page or by clicking the tab located underneath the page header.

Clock In and Clock Out

When a Worker logs into the Beacon system, the Entry tab will display a Worker PIN field. Enter any valid Worker PIN.

The worker name associated with the PIN will appear. The Clock In / Clock Out button will be available, as well as the Apply Schedule checkbox.

To clock in, click the Clock In button. The Time In will reflect the exact time the Clock In button was clicked. The Clock In button will switch to a Clock Out button.

To clock out, click the Clock Out button. The Time Out will reflect the exact time the Clock Out button was clicked. The Clock Out button will switch back to a Clock In button.

Hours will calculate after clocking in and out, and will be calculated for each Clock In / Clock Out action. 

Apply Schedule

Rather than using the Clock In and Clock Out buttons, check the Apply Schedule checkbox.

The Worker’s schedule will be applied to the Time In and Time Out columns, and the Hours will calculate accordingly.
