For devices with function keys, it is required to configure T&A key from T&A setting page. By doing this, employees will make punch in/out using T&A keys and administrator will be able to calculate exact worktime / breaktime.
But how about devices without T&A key?
Following guideline is to support check in and check out functions to calculate the worktime / breaktime for devices without T&A key.
1. Prepare two devices. One device for IN and another device for OUT.
2. Go to Time Attendance → Setting and register two devices as T&A device.
3. Choose IN device and set it mode to Fixed option with Break End.
4. Choose OUT device and set it mode to Fixed option with Break Start.
BioStar will calculate worktime and breaktime based on the punch without pressing any T&A key. However, the result is always “Missing Break Start, Missing Break End” in BioStar versions before 2.4.
Starting version 2.4, if you are using First check-in & Last check-out with Break by Punch, check Handle Exception of Fixed Break/Meal T&A Key. This should make your report result to be normal.
