Modified on Wed, 06 Jun 2018 at 10:59 AM

Import the log file from the Biometric Machine. The log file look like the screenshot below. Every log file should be saved in a folder.  The folder where the log file is located should not contain any other file or log file from the previous month. Also take note of the folder location because you are going to need it later on. The log file format must be .txt.


Go to Payroll Menu Bar > Tools > click the down arrow below the Biometrics then Import Log Format Mapping

Biometrics Mapping window will appear then click Add Biometric Mapping

Then a prompt will appear. Double check the date format of your log, make sure that it’s the same with your computer’s date format. E.g. if your computer has “dd/mm/yyyy” date format, it must be the same with the log file. Then click OK.

Then fill in the required details then click Save then Close. 

1. Input the Log File Code. E.g. 00001

2. Locate the Log File Folder.

3. Identify the Log File Type. (In this case, tab separated)

4. Locate the Log file.

5. The data inside the Log File is displayed here.

6. Choose the appropriate field (based on no. 5) for each detail (Employee Code, Date, Time in and Time out).


Then, go to Payroll Menu Bar > View > Daily Time Record. Then under the Schedule Information, Choose the Schedule related to the Biometrics Log File.

Then, go to Payroll Menu Bar > View > Daily Time Record > Import
