What are Unclaimed Punches?
Unclaimed punches are punches that the system was unable to post to a timesheet for one of these two reasons...
- No employee record exists for the badge number -- these unclaimed punches will have no Employee ID listed in the "Employee No." column
- The timesheet was already locked at the PAYROLL status -- these unclaimed punches have an Employee ID listed in the "Employee No." column
How to Manage Unclaimed Punches
Understanding the Design of the Attendance > Unclaimed Page
Regardless which employee you have selected in the Employee List Panel on the left side, the page reflects all unclaimed punches in the system.
WARNING: The "Select All" button in the toolbar selects all records on all pages. We generally recommend not using this button.
Processing Unclaimed Punches
If you have corrected the Badge Number on an employee record to match that on Unclaimed Punch records, you can click the "Process Unposted/Unclaimed Punches" button in the toolbar on the Attendance > Unclaimed page.
Deleting Unclaimed Punches
To delete one or more Unclaimed Punch records:
individually select the punches by clicking the Assign checkbox for each individual row
click the delete button to delete selected rows
Assigning Unclaimed Punches
To assign one or more Unclaimed Punch records to an employee's timesheet:
Search for the employee in the Employee List Panel
Once the employee record is selected, check the Assign checkbox(es) on the Unclaimed Punch records
Click the "Assign" button in the toolbar
