TimePilot Central is the place you'll be spending most of your time when you use the TimePilot software. In TimePilot Central, which is password-protected, you can set up employees, create or change your company's policies (overtime, holiday schedule, etc.), monitor employee transactions, setup and configure TimePilot clocks and generate reports. Let's take a look at the TimePilot Central screen:

Down the left side of the screen is a series of tabs. Clicking them will show you various aspects of your TimePilot system. Here's a description of each:


Select this tab to view your software version and edition as well as account information. If you request support, you'll need your license number. It's there too.

The Account tab displays your account information



In/Out Board

The In/Out Board displays the up-to-date status of each employee. Green arrows indicate they are currently clocked in. Blank space indicates they are clocked out. A box indicates that they are currently either on holiday, vacation, taking PTO time etc. For a key to the box colors, click the "Setup" tab along the left side of the screen, then the "Transaction Type" tab that appears at the top of the screen.
