You might have an employee who is going to temporarily work from home, or maybe an employee's position in the company has changed to a different location. You will need to change their policy so that they no longer have to punch in at a specified location.

The change you need to make depend son where the Job Fencing policy instruction is set—on the employee's personal profile or on the Master Profile assigned to them.

In this article, you will learn:


How to find out where the job fencing instruction is set

  1. Log in to your Fingercheck account as an Administrator.

  2. Check the employee's profile.

    1. Click the EMPLOYEE tab, and click on an employee's number to open the employee's profile.

    2. On the profile page, click Profile under Personal.

    3. Click the Edit icon (pencil) for the profile.

      Note the name of the profile, as you may need to know that name a bit later in the process.

    4. In the profile that appears, scroll down to Job Fencing Policy field.

    5. If the field contains text, change the entry to (none). If it is empty, leave it as is.

  3. If the employee personal profile has no results, check the master profile.

    1. Go to the SETUP tab > System > Master Profiles.

    2. Click the Edit icon (pencil) for the Master profile.

    3. In the profile that appears, scroll down to Job Fencing Policy field.

    4. If the field contains text, do not change the entry because the change will affect all employees using this profile.
      In this case, create a separate Master Profile for the employee (a copy of the existing profile but one that does not include the Job Fencing policy), and assign it to the employee as described below.


How to create a new master profile and assign it to the employee

  1. Go to the Setup tab > System > Master Profiles.

  2. Click the Edit icon (pencil) to open the Master Profile currently assigned to the employee.

  3. Take note of all fields that have anything set in them.
    You will need to set the same values later.

  4. Return to the Setup tab > System > Master Profiles, and click Add.

  5. Enter a different Code and Description from the previous one.

    These are just for naming purposes, so make them something you'll recognize later.

  6. Enter in all of the same values for all of the same fields you saw in step 3, except for the Job Fencing Policy, which you will leave blank.

  7. Click Save at the bottom of the window.

  8. Go to the EMPLOYEES tab, and click the name of the employee.

  9. On the profile page, click Profile under Personal.

  10. Click the Edit icon (pencil) for the profile.

  11. Change the Master Profile field to the new profile you created.

  12. Click Save.
