Cloud-based TimePilot Central 5: Clock in from anywhere on the planet!

Getting started with Cloud-based systems

Here's a step-by-step guide to getting up and running with TimePilot's Cloud-based systems:

1. Install TimePilot Central 5 Management Software

Within one business day after placing your order, we'll send you a download link and a serial serial number so you can download and install the TimePilot Central 5 Management Software. Install the software and when requested enter the serial number.

The software's setup wizard will start. It will guide you through a series of questions about your organization's work and pay policies. At the end of the process, you'll enter data about your employees.

2. Set up time clocks on your employees' PCs and phones

Once you have the management software set up, it's time to install the time clocks.

  1. Start TimePilot Central 5 and click the "Clock Manager" button on the left side of the screen.
  2. All of the clocks and smartphones that you install will appear here. Click the "Add New Clock" button at the top of the screen.
  3. Choose your clock type. The Mobile App is TimePilot's iPhone® and Android™ app that individual employees will use to clock in and out. The XBlue Sky app is used by supervisors who are collecting data from Extreme Blue II outdoor time clocks.
