Fingercheck's many punching methods are what set us apart, especially our modern and convenient ways of punching, such as text punching.

How to enable text punching

  1. Log in to Fingercheck as an Administrator.

  2. Click the EMPLOYEES tab, and select the employee to open their profile.

  3. Under Personal, click Self Service.

  4. In the Clock In Options section, click the Edit icon (pencil).

  5. Select the Allow SMS Text Punch checkbox.

  6. In the SMS Phone Number field, enter the employee's mobile phone number.

  7. Click Save.

Now you have enabled text punching for your employees. To punch in, your employees simply send a text to 910-714-5869. Their first message of the day is counted as an "In" punch, their second as an "Out" punch, and so on and so forth. They do not need to write a message, but if they do, the message is documented in the punch notes.
