Installing Clock Manager

Clock Manager generally is installed along with TimePilot Central when you first install the TimePilot software. If you need to re-install Clock Manager, here's how:

  1. Place the CD into your computerís CD drive.
  2. When the opening screen appears, click "Install TimePilot Software."
  3. Choose the "TimePilot Installation Menu" (not the "TimePilot Installation Wizard"), then follow the instructions to install only the TimePilot Clock Manager.
  4. After Clock Manager is installed, you'll see its icon (shown below) on your desktop. You can also start Clock Manager from inside TimePilot Central, by clicking the Setup menu in TimePilot Central and choosing "Clock Manager."

 

 

Setting up Clock Manager

The process of setting up Clock Manager depends upon the version of the TimePilot software you're using. (If you aren't sure which version you have, click here to see how to find out.) Below are short descriptions of the differences:

TimePilot Professional Edition Users

Professional Edition users will install Clock Manager on a PC or server that has direct access to the TimePilot database (that is, the database is either on the PC's hard drive or on the server). Professional Edition users can install the TimePilot Smartphone App for iPhone or Android and link to it through the Cloud, but cannot link other TimePilot products to the system via the Cloud.

TimePilot Enterprise Users

TimePilot Enterprise Edition users can do all the things that Professional Edition users can do (described above), as well as use the Cloud to link other TimePilot timeclocks at remote sites with the TimePilot database at a central location. For Clock Manager installation Instructions, click here.
