TimePilot Definitions

Login Accounts*

Supervisors choose their User Name from the list.What are Login Accounts?
There might be a time when you want to give supervisors partial access to the TimePilot database. For instance, you might give a maintenance supervisor access to the transactions created by maintenance department employees, but not to the transactions created by IT department employees. This is where you set up these permissions (available only in TimePilot Enterprise Edition).

The employees granted the permission will log on to the system by choosing their User Name from the drop-down list (click the arrow to the right of "Administrator" to see the list) and entering the password they were assigned. (See screenshot at right.)

Here's how to set up a user login:

  1. Start TimePilot Central (you must have full administrative rights), click the Administrative menu, then "Login Account Setup."
  2. Administrator will always appear at the top of the list. This is the master login for your TimePilot system. If you click "Administrator, then the "Edit" button, you will be able to change the master password, but not the name (Administrator).
  3. To add another user, click the Add Login Account button.

  4.  At the top of the screen that appears, enter the login name (of course, Administrator is already in use, so you'll need to choose something else) and create a password.
  5.  If you wish, you can enter the name of the person who will be issued this access at the top right of the screen.
  6.  Now decide how much access this person will have:
  7. Click Save.

Here are some examples:

Example 1

Add a user login: Example 1

The administrator has set up George Washington, a maintenance supervisor, with his own login (Maintenance999) and password (529Brush). George will be able to modify the TimePilot hardware, and when he starts TimePilot Central, he will be able to see only those employees who been assigned to the Maintenance Department. In addition, he will be able to modify any of those employees' transactions (because the "Read Only" box is not checked).

Example 2

Add a user login: Example 2

The administrator has set up Abby Adams, a Human Resources supervisor, with her own login (HR82668) and password (HuMRez729?). Abby will be able to modify the TimePilot hardware and will be able to see and work with transactions generated by anyone in any department or shift who has been assigned to the Chicago location.

Example 3

Add a user login: Example 3

The administrator has set up Anthony Rodriguez, an employee in Editorial, with a username (EdiT-30-) and password (NYTWSJ). Anthony cannot modify the TimePilot hardware, and is allowed to view—but not modify—transactions generated by Editorial employees.
