How to Create a New User

Last Updated: Aug 03, 2016 04:00PM EDT
If it's one technique you'll master using FingerCheck, it's the art of creating a new user. Here are the steps to take to set up a new user:
  • Log onto your FingerCheck account and go to the “Setup” tab. From the drop down menu on the top left of the page, select “Security Menu.”
  • Within the Security Menu click on "Security Users" and then the yellow "Add" button.
  • Within the "Security User Information" box you are required to enter your employee's email, username, password, and company.
  • You will also need to select how they would like the time, date, and hours displayed, as well as the time zone (which is automatically set to Eastern).
  • Once you have filled in the required fields, click the "Add" button, and now you will need to choose the role this user has. There are three set user roles to choose from - employee, supervisor, and administrator.
    • Administrator  Administrators have full access to the software, however you can still apply filters
    • Supervisor – Supervisors have limited access to the software but have certain managerial privileges. For instance, they can log into the mobile app and via any web browser and view and edit the data of employees. Administrators can narrow the data they have access to by creating custom filters
    • Employee – Employees can log in to review their time card, request PTO, and you can select for them to be able to clock in and out. They cannot manipulate any form of data.  
  • You can also create custom roles depending on what you want your users to be able to see or do. To learn how to do so, click here.
  • You can now add filters to determine who your supervisors can see and can't see. Within the "User Role" box, click on "User Filters," then click on "Add."

  • In the new pop up window, select your "Division" from the drop down box and the filter you would like to apply to this employee. If you do not currently have your filters set up, you can learn how to do so here.

Now you have created a new security user, classified their role rights, and applied any desired filters to their account abilities.
