Setting Up Employee ID Badge Numbers in Swipe Badge Systems

Keypad Systems

Prior to setting up any new employees, please consider if the default Employee ID Number of 100 (or 1000 on later versions of TimeIPS) assigned to the administrative employee is how you want to begin your Employee ID Number sequence. If not, please consider the following: Changing the administrative employee's ID number or setting up a new employee's Individual Employee ID number can be handled 2 different ways:


  1. Accept the automatically assigned sequential ID / Badge Number that the system will give to each new employee.


  3. Assign a unique number in the ID / Badge Number field as needed. If you want each employee to have their own custom number (such as their driver's license number or Social Security Number), you'll have to override the auto-generated employee ID number generated by the system on each employee.


Swipe Badge Systems


For swipe badge systems. we suggest using automatic sequence numbering. To do this, locate the swipe badge with the beginning (lowest) number on the back of the badge. Enter this number in the ID / Badge Number field for the administrative employee. The system will automatically generate the next highest sequential Badge Number for each new employee that is created to match their card.
