Understanding Different Levels of Administration

Within TimeClick there are several different levels of administration that allow you to spread the work of administering TimeClick across different departments. Note that all three levels of administration are accessible with a  unique administrative password. Having multiple admin users makes it easier to split the work among others and ensures the proper tasks are assigned to the appropriate administrator. Each of the three administration modes can be open on any of the TimeClick computers by clicking the administration button, choosing the administration mode you would like to enter and then typing the password.

The first option is the main administration mode. This administrator will have access to everything in the time tracking system. This is where you will add and edit employees’ records, modify times, view reports, set preferences, and manage your accruals.

Next, you have the Level 2 – Restricted Administration mode. This will allow anyone with the appropriate password to view reports and/or modify times if the main administrator  allows them to do so. By default, the Level 2 administration is only able to view reports in TimeClick. You can, however, allow them to modify times by going into the main administration mode, selecting preferences then password and misc controls and then check the box that reads allow level 2 and department supervisors to modify times.

Last, there is a Department Supervisor administration level. Again, like a level 2 administration you can allow department heads the ability to just run reports or to modify times as well. In order to allow a department supervisor these administrative capabilities, you will first need to create the department, and then set them up as a department supervisor in the administration mode under Departments. After you’ve assigned an employee to be a department supervisor they will be able to access reports and modify times for employees listed within their department. The department supervisor(s) will be able to use their employee password to log in to this restricted area.

The different administration levels in our  system provide the flexibility needed to properly manage your growing workforce. If you need further assistance on using these option, please feel free to contact us by live chatting on our website, by email, or by phone (435)753-4102.
