Punch Entry Screens are time entry screens that are ideal for non-exempt employees who will typically be using a single terminal to punch-in at the beginning of the workday and punch-out at the end of the workday. In this manner, the Punch Entry Screen simulates the old timed punch clock. The Punch Entry Screen is not complex and is not designed for user flexibility, but rather ease of use.


To create a new Punch Entry Screen, click the Create Punch Screen button located in the lower right corner of the main Punch Entry Screen page. This will direct you to the Punch Screen Creation page where you can specify the attributes of the Punch Entry Screen (see figure 1.4). Specify a name for the Punch Entry Screen. You can then specify to what extent you wish to show to users' their recent punches. You can also select which additional options will be allowed to the users such as the Timecard Report button or the Accruals button.

You may also change the display order and hidden status of the column headers that will be shown to users in the Punch Entry Screen. Default values can be chosen for all the column headers and a default comment may be specified. Punch users by default do not have access to any tabs, so they will not be able to override anything.


Alternatively, you may also create a new Punch Entry Screen by copying the attributes of an existing Punch Entry Screen at the top right corner of the screen. Once copied, you then only have to change the attributes that will be unique to the new Punch Screen.


To modify an existing Punch Entry Screen, simply click the name of the Punch Entry Screen from the main Punch Entry Screen page located under Configuration-->Entry Screens-->Punch Entry Screens (see figure 1.3).


To delete a Punch Entry Screen, check the entry screens to delete and click the Delete button (see figure 1.3).


Once you have an entry screen created you will need to make sure the entry screen is in the users group. Once the entry screen is in their group then they can select it from their Preferences menu. Or an admin can set that as their entry screen on the User settings screen.
