Update Settings at a Network Clock

The Network Clock is primarily used to clock in and out. The clock also offers a System Menu which can be used to configure the device and access other functions. This article covers how and when to Update Settings.


The option to "Update Settings" will force the clock to communicate with the TimeIPS server, reload all clock configuration items and refresh the cache of all employees, jobs, etc.  This is useful when:


To access Update Settings:

Press Enter on the main screen without entering a Badge number. Then, on a clock with the default configuration, press enter 3 more times.  If the clock is locked, you will either need to enter a badge number and PIN for an employee with full access, or enter the PIN for the clock, set on the TimeIPS server.
