1. Turn on NFC
Using an Android device, navigate to the settings and ensure that NFC is turned on. This setting can usually be found under Connections or Device connectivity but will vary depending on the Android model and software version.
2. Login to the TimeDock app
Log in to the TimeDock mobile app as an Admin User. If you're already logged in to the app, ensure that it has performed a sync since you added the relevant employee(s) into your TimeDock account. The last sync time is displayed under the TimeDock logo on the main camera screen. If it hasn't synced since then, tap the text to force it to sync.
3. Select clock-in mode
On the main camera screen of the app, ensure that the mode is set to clock in, indicated by the green scope. If the scope is red, tap the middle of the screen to change it to green (clock in mode).
4. Encode the card/tag
Tap and hold a blank NFC card or tag to the back of your device until a screen prompt appears. Follow the on-screen instructions to encode the card or tag for an employee.
