If you've just signed up for Fingercheck, you might be wondering where to start. The time card is where you'll spend a lot of your time as an administrator.

The Time Card screen holds all your employee punches and is your go-to tab for all time-related processes.

To learn about other time card features and functions, check out other articles in the Time Card section of our library.
