Not Punched In

RPOWER systems may include the Time Clock option. Employees using these systems will be required to punch or Time-In before accessing any other RPOWER function. RPOWER will display the message at right when an employee is not Timed-In and attempts to access the system. See the following for details of Time Clock operations.

Servers using Server Banks must close their banks before Timing-Out.

Enter Passcode

Contents

How do I time in?

In a Passcode Secure system, using the numeric keypad enter an assigned Passcode, including leading zeroes if necessary. Or, if so required and/or equipped, swipe an employee card or scan a fingerprint.

In a non-Passcode Secure system, touch Other Options once, and then Time Clock. Using the numeric keypad enter an assigned Passcode, including leading zeroes if necessary. Or, if so required and/or equipped, swipe an employee card or scan a fingerprint.

Select the appropriate job from those displayed by touching it.

Depending on system configuration, and the job selected in the previous step, a "Room" selection window may be presented. If so, choose the restaurant room or dining area in which the employee will be primarily working.

Confirm the Time-In process by touching Punch-IN, or cancel the entire operation by touching Cancel.

Example Message

How do messages work?

If management has sent a message to the employee it will be displayed during the Time-In process (and/or during the Time-Out process). If a reply is required, Delete will not be available, touch Reply to compose a reply, and then touch Send Message; or touch Keep to advance to any other messages pending, Send New to compose a new message, Delete to delete the current message or Done to exit messaging.

Close Server Bank!

How do I close my server bank?

Servers using Server Banks must close their banks before Timing-Out, or to end a shift. RPOWER will display the message at right if a server attempts to Time-Out with an open Server Bank.

In a Passcode Secure system, using the numeric keypad enter an assigned Passcode, including leading zeroes if necessary. Or, if so required and/or equipped, swipe an employee card or scan a fingerprint. Touch Other Options/More Options to locate Svr Bank Read or Close and press it.

In a non-Passcode Secure system, touch Other Options/More Options to locate Svr Bank Read or Close and press it. Using the numeric keypad enter an assigned Passcode, including leading zeroes if necessary. Or, if so required and/or equipped, swipe an employee card or scan a fingerprint.

  • Tip: If Other Options is not available because a dining room is displayed, (graphical tables) touch Switch Room and then Back. If Other Options is not available because a Server, Table or Check selection window is displayed, touch Back (and No at the Are you done? prompt in Passcode Secure systems).

Depending on system configuration, RPOWER may prompt to Read or Close the server bank. If so prompted, touch Close, or touch Cancel to quit the operation entirely.

At the Ready to Close Server Bank... prompt, touch OK to proceed, or touch Cancel to quit the operation entirely.

At the Print check detail? prompt touch Yes to print a two line summary of each guest check, touch No to skip check detail (recommended), or touch Cancel to quit the operation entirely.
