TimePilot newsletter No. 4
Whether you're a current or future TimePilot customer, we're glad to see you.
Every month we'll offer news about TimePilot products tips on how to use them more efficiently, some of the "cool stuff" our employees have come across and a special deal available only to those who receive this newsletter!
New iButton Receptor:
A simple time-saver
Introducing our newest product: The iButton Receptor. It’s really a simple device: two iButton probes attached by a coiled cable to a USB connector.
Simple in concept, but extremely useful if you’re a TimePilot PC, a TimePilot Vetro or a TimePilot Standard user. (TimePilot Extreme users receive an iButton Receptor in their Starter Kit.)
If you use TimePilot PC, our software-only timeclock system, adding an iButton Receptor allows you to require your employees to clock in and out with an iButton, greatly reducing the possibility of “buddy-punching”—a situation when one employees clocks in another, even though the second employee is absent.
With an iButton Receptor, you can require specific employees to clock in with an iButton and give other employees the ability to clock in with an ID number or an iButton.
If you have more than one installation of TimePilot PC, you can also require specific PCs running TimePilot PC to only accept iButtons for clocking in and allow other TimePilot PC installations to accept an iButton or an ID number.

and TimePilot Standard
If you use TimePilot Vetro or TimePilot Standard, the iButton Receptor can make your life easier. Normally, you set up your software at the PC, and then assign iButtons to your employees at the Vetro or Standard clock. You have to assign the iButtons at the clock, because that’s the only place there’s an iButton probe to read the iButton’s serial number.
But if you have an iButton Receptor, you can set up the iButtons right at your computer. Here’s how to get detailed instructions:
