Here you will manage your employees
Step 1: Click on Employees and choose Manage
Step 2: Click on options (dots) and select New
Step 3: Enter all employee details under the General tab
Step 4: Under device details, you can choose if an employee should have administrator access to the device, or common user privilege. (Common users only clock and do not have access to enter the menu options to change settings or enroll people.) Here you can also assign a password to log into the device or assign an RFID card. Lastly, here you can link your employee to the relevant Time zone group.
As soon as all the employee details are correctly added and defined, the system will automatically update and more tabs will appear. Note: If a tab changes it's color to a light orange color, please check the details on this tab again, as this means there is an error will prevent the process from proceeding.
Step 5: Under enrolled template(s), you can see how many fingers or faceID (if you are using facial ID) have been enrolled for the employee, as well as the dates the fingers or faceID was enrolled.
Step 6: To link an employee to an overtime rule, select the overtime rule set-up(s) tab. Next, click on ellipses button (dots) next to the employee name and then select New overtime rule set-up
Choose the relevant overtime rule from the drop-down list, and set the effective date of the overtime rule (this feature is particularly useful if an employee has changed to a department with a different overtime rule, and you want the employee's start date at the new department to be the effective date for the newly selected overtime rule). If an employee is not assigned to an overtime rule, no overtime reporting will be available for that employee.
Step 7: Under Group membership, you can link the employee to the relevant access group

Deleting and Duplicating Overtime Rule(s) & Shift(s)
Binary City Time now offers users the capability to permanently delete overtime rules including shifts that are no longer in use as well as duplicate existing overtime rule(s) and shift(s).
With this functionality in BC Time, users can delete unused overtime rules, leading to a manageable view that displays only the currently active rules. Additionally, Overtime rule(s) and Shift(s) duplication will enhance efficiency when handling various employees or departments with different working hours.
1. The Manage overtime rule(s) menu, now comes with several filters that allow you to filter by overtime rule types, overtime rules that are in use, those that are not as well as the option to search for a specific overtime rule(s).
The filter view can be easily managed by clicking the ellipses button, selecting set-up columns, and (checking) the filters you wish to display.
2. Selecting the all type(s) filter, allows the user to filter only the Daily or Period overtime rules. Alternatively, all type(s) selection will filter both.
3. Selecting the all (in use or not) filter, allows the user to filter only the rules that are in use or those that aren't. Alternatively, all(in use or not) selection will filter both.
4. Selecting the search overtime rule(s) filter, simply allows the user to search a specific overtime rule within the Manage overtime rule(s) menu.
5. The Manage overtime rule(s) menu displays the following information, the name of the overtime rule, the type, whether the overtime rule is in use (checked) or not (unchecked) including whether the overtime rule is pending setup (unchecked) or has a Completed set-up (checked) as indicated below.
Deleting overtime rule(s)
This is particularly useful in instances where a created rule is no longer in use and will not be required in the future.
1. To delete a rule, select the rule by clicking the checkbox next to the rule, and once selected click on the ellipses next to Manage overtime rule(s):
2. After clicking the ellipses, the below window will appear with the delete option.
Once you've made your selection to delete, the below pop-up window will appear for the user to confirm their selection to delete or cancel.
When the overtime rule is deleted the user must bear in mind that the rule will also be removed from the overtime rule set-up(s) of the employee(s) affected.
If an overtime rule is in use or was used in a closed pay-run period, deleting it will not be possible. The below pop-up window will appear with the delete option greyed out with a sliding pop-up window stating that the selected rule cannot be deleted.
Should the user then wish to proceed with deleting said overtime rule(s), then the affected pay run periods would need to be re-opened, however, doing so will change the data history affected by this overtime rule.
When deleting multiple overtime rules, the system intelligently understands your selection and displays the option to Delete selected.
When deleting multiple overtime rules, BC Time will also detect rules that are in use and those that aren’t and provide a pop-up message stating that “one or more of the selected overtime rule(s) will not be deleted because it is actively in use)". Should the user continue the overtime rules that can be deleted will be deleted and those that can’t will remain.
Duplicating overtime rule(s) and shift(s)
Duplicating overtime rule(s) and shift(s) is now possible in BC Time.
This becomes useful in scenarios where a user might require a similar rule with minor changes instead of re-creating the entire rule from the ground up. Duplicating an overtime rule or shift creates a mirror copy of the initial rule and shifts with its setup.
1. To use this functionality, the user should click the ellipses and the below window will appear:
Duplicate: This will enable the user to make a copy of the selected overtime rule. In our example below, a copy of Binary City Support OT was created and indicated as a copy.
Duplicate shift(s): This will enable the user to create a copy of the shifts that have been created within a specified rule. In our example below, the shift (08:00 - 13:00 & 08:00 - 17:00) was created as a copy from shifts originally set up under overtime rule Binary City Support OT.
When duplicating a shift, BC Time will notify the user that you are about to duplicate all the unique shift(s) from the selected overtime rule(s) and require confirmation to proceed.
There is logic in the system that if no shifts exist then the duplicate shifts tab will be greyed out as indicated in the below view, with a pop-up advising that "There are no shift(s) to duplicate on the overtime rule":
