If you are on the Time and Attendance plan, you can individually add employees to your Fingercheck system, or you can use a .csv file to upload many employees at once.


In this article, you will learn:


How to manually add an employee

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

  2. Click the EMPLOYEES tab.

  3. Click New Employee.

  4. Complete the required fields, which have an asterisk (*) next to them.
    You can also complete the optional fields. Consider these tips when completing the fields:

    • Some payroll providers identify employees by using employee numbers instead of names, so you might want to use the same number in Fingercheck.

    • If the employee will be clocking in from a time clock, you must enter a Clock Number. The clock number can be the same as the employee number unless that number is alphanumeric or has leading zeros.

    • To autogenerate a number, enter a question mark (?), and press Enter or click out of the field.

  5. If using biometric clocks, you may send your new employee's information to the clock they will be using:

    1. Click Select Clocks (next to Enroll on Clock).

    2. In the Clocks Selection window, select the clock you want to send them to, and click OK.

  6. Click Next, and complete the optional fields if you would like.

  7. Click Next, and select a Department, if relevant.

  8. Click Save.

How to import employees

If you have many employees, you can import a master list of your employees' details in a spreadsheet instead.

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

  2. Click the EMPLOYEES tab.

  3. Click the Import Employees icon.

  4. In the dialog box that appears, click Download Sample File.

  5. Open the file, and add your employees to the file.
    At a minimum, add the following required information:

    • EmployeeNumber (If you are using a payroll company, you may want to use the same number as your payroll company to identify your employee.)

    • Employee Status (Enter A for active.)

    • FirstName

    • LastName

    • Gender (Male or Female must be spelled out.)

    • ClockNumber (if your employees will be clocking in at a time clock)

  6. Return to the EMPLOYEES tab, and click the Import Employees icon.

  7. In the dialog box that appears, click Upload File, and select the file.

  8. Click OK.
    The employees appear in the Employee list.
