TimePilot Extreme Blue/Extreme Blue Enhanced
Sending Data to TimePilot Central
(Extreme Blue Enhanced users only; Extreme Blue users,
When you send data from your smartphone to headquarters, the data travels via
your cell phone network or a wi-fi network to your account at Dropbox.com, a
free cloud service. The data is held there until it is downloaded into the
TimePilot database by Clock Manager, a part of the TimePilot Central software at
headquarters. Here's how to send and retrieve the data:
- Tap the Cloud icon (in the iPhone app) or the Cloud button (in the Android app) on
the Main Screen of the app on your phone. Your clock-in and clock-out data is sent to Dropbox.
Now start Clock Manager on your PC. (In TimePilot Central, click the “Setup”
menu, then “Clock Manager...”). The name of the phone that sent the data in
the previous step will be shown in red (see screenshot at right). This is an indicator that there is data in
Dropbox waiting to be retrieved.
- Right-click the phone and select “Get Transactions from Phone.” The data will flow
into the TimePilot database and you’ll see it in TimePilot Central.
