How to Import Employees

Last Updated: Jul 15, 2016 01:31PM EDT
If you have a large company with many employees, you can forego the manual action of adding employees detail by detail and import a master list of your employees' details in the form of a spreadsheet instead.

Here is how to do it:

  • Log in, go to your "Employee Tab" and click on the "Import" button. To download a blank spreadsheet that is compatible with FingerCheck, click on "Download Sample File." 
  • Start adding your employees into the correct columns. The required fields include first name, last name, employee number, gender, and if your employees will be clocking in at a time clock, clock number. If you are using a payroll company, you may want to use the same number as your payroll company to identify your employee. The clock number can be the same as your employee number, however, clock numbers cannot be alphanumeric so you'll want to remove any letters from the number. 
  • Save the spreadsheet and upload it using the "Import" button. Once you successfully choose your file and upload it, you should see your new employee immediately in your employee list.

Now you're all done!
