The Fingercheck scheduled task "POHOUR" allows you to efficiently send punch information from one company (Origination Company) to another company (Destination Company) in Fingercheck. This is a valuable feature when you manage multiple companies within Fingercheck and need to centralize your time and attendance data. To make the most of this feature, you'll need to configure several job parameters.

Please note that this article focuses solely on providing instructions for the action type. If you need guidance on setting up a scheduled task, you can refer to our dedicated article on scheduling tasks, which can be found here.
