RTS includes a time clock that can be set up to help keep track of your employee's hours and pay.
  
 +
 +
==Setting Up the RTS Timeclock==
 +
 +
To start using the RTS Timeclock, you need to [[Passwords_and_Password_Groups#Adding_New_Users | set up your employees with individual passwords]] in the <code>Setup -> Password</code> window. Once your employees have been added into the system, you will need to [[#Creating Departments | create departments]] and [[#Assigning Departments | assign]] your employees to departments. Once you've done this, there may be some location-specific options you wish to change like Lunch in/out and Breaks in/out.
 +
 +
 +
===Creating Departments===
 +
 +
The RTS time clock needs to have departments set up in order to properly keep track of hours and payroll. Examples of Departments you could use are Cashier, Janitorial, Usher, Wait Staff, and Boxoffice.
 +
 +
 +
To add departments
 +
#Navigate to <code>Setup -> Time Clock -> Options</code>.<br><br>[[File:SU_TimeClock_Options.PNG|200px]]<br><br>
 +
#Choose the ''Departments'' tab, Click '''Edit'''.
 +
#A window will prompt to add or remove departments, Select '''Add''' to enter a new department name (you can use '''Delete''' to remove unused departments if needed).
 +
#Please repeat these steps as needed. If the department can complete transactions, please mark the box '''Finish Cash Transactions'''.
 +
#Once all the departments you need are added, select '''Save'''.
 +
 +
 +
===Assigning Departments===
 +
 +
Employees will need to be assigned to at least one department before they can start using the time clock.
 
   
 
   
  
=='''Overview of the Process:'''==

RTS includes a time clock that can be set up to help keep track of your employee's hours and pay.


Setting Up the RTS Timeclock

To start using the RTS Timeclock, you need to set up your employees with individual passwords in the Setup -> Password window. Once your employees have been added into the system, you will need to create departments and assign your employees to departments. Once you've done this, there may be some location-specific options you wish to change like Lunch in/out and Breaks in/out.


Creating Departments

The RTS time clock needs to have departments set up in order to properly keep track of hours and payroll. Examples of Departments you could use are Cashier, Janitorial, Usher, Wait Staff, and Boxoffice.


To add departments

  1. Navigate to Setup -> Time Clock -> Options.

    SU TimeClock Options.PNG

  2. Choose the Departments tab, Click Edit.
  3. A window will prompt to add or remove departments, Select Add to enter a new department name (you can use Delete to remove unused departments if needed).
  4. Please repeat these steps as needed. If the department can complete transactions, please mark the box Finish Cash Transactions.
  5. Once all the departments you need are added, select Save.


Assigning Departments

Employees will need to be assigned to at least one department before they can start using the time clock.


  1. In RTS, navigate to Setup -> Timeclock -> Employees in Department

    SU TimeClock EmployeesInDept.JPG

  2. Select the employee you wish to assign in the Employee List on the left hand side.
  3. Check each department you wish the employee to be in
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each employee.
  5. When you're done, press Save


Note: Employees can be assigned to multiple time clock groups. When an employee with multiple departments clocks in, they will be asked which department they are clocking in as.
