Autopoll
 

Autopoll Module for Icon TimeSource and TimeVue
Gets the punch data for you, at times that you predetermine.

Automatically synchronizes your time clock terminal with your time tracking software. 
By using AutoPoll configured by time-of-day, your PC will download punch information
from remote sites at off-peak times to avoid disturbing your daily operations.

You can also use AutoPoll to automatically synchronize your PC and data terminals at
a preset interval such as every 10 minutes, keeping daily totals at the clock up-to-date.

Works in conjunction with your Microsoft Scheduler utility - which is part of the
Windows OS, included in Windows Servers 2003, 2008, 2012, XP, Vista and “7“ - and "8".

It's relatively easy to set up, automates a cumbersome process

Regarding Icon TimeVue Autopoll:

"Autopoll" automatically reaches out and grabs the information from the clock at preset times. 
It then brings it back in, sorts it out in your computer, then updates the data file
(which should be placed moved to the server +
for safety). If not, that should also be addressed at this time.

It will run from the computer that is currently running the software. 
The computer must be on for this action to occur. 
If not, it will wait until the next scheduled polling time. 
When it happens, a pop-up screen will, well, pop-up. 
It will interrupt your work for about 20 seconds. 
So if you were typing an email, it would momentarily interrupt you. 
Annoying, but not as annoying as having to stop, poll the clock, and have a discussion
with "Ed" or "Mary" at odd times when you have other things on you desk to attend to.

Our thoughts on this:  It's worth the interruption. 
Schedule it for an easy time to remember, and maybe one that you can get accustomed
to, like 8:25 AM  then 1:25PM, Monday - Friday.   Then you and your managers, know
that they can get fairly accurate ideas as to who is in, how many hours they
have, etc., after 8:30,  and afternoon, 1:30.  We have seen call centers
run it every 30 minutes, 24/5 (24 hours, Monday - Friday), but that seemed abit much.
