TimeTec TA Migration Wizard: Enable migration from Ingress & TCMS V3
Is your company currently using FingerTec devices with TCMS V3/Ingress software? Well, if you are interested in trying out TimeTec TA, it’s going to be much easier now. We’ve recently expanded the Migration Wizard to allow the migration of TCMS V3/Ingress database into your TimeTec TA account. With this feature, you do not need to redo the clocking schedule setup, nor do you need to insert the employee biodata into TimeTec.
The types of data you can keep and migrate are as follows:
i. Company hierarchy (names of departments and sections)
ii. Attendance rules and calculations (clocking schedules, group duty roster, holidays, leave types)
iii. Employees’ biodata (name, address, phone, designation etc.)
iv. Employees’ verification credentials (ID, fingerprints, password, card ID)
To begin, use the Migration Wizard option within TCMS V3 or Ingress applications to export and convert these information into a zipped file. Following that, in TimeTec TA, go to Support > Wizard > Migration and choose the relevant software to upload your zip file. You can then choose the specific type of data and/or user that you want to import. Please refer to the screenshots below for more information.
a. Menu: Support > Wizard > Migration
b. Migration Wizard: Introduction Tab- Added new options for TCMS V3 & Ingress
c. Data (Advanced Settings) Selection Tab

Select the type of information to migrate. By default, all items will be selected.

f. Migration Successful Message
g. Migration Successful with conflicts
  Terminal Group – Added Default Terminal Group
Next up is an update that is only relevant for companies using terminals in TimeTec TA. We’ve just added a default Terminal Group on all subscriber accounts, since the terminal group must be selected whenever you are adding a new terminal into the system. Therefore, there is now at least one Default Group available for selection.

As usual, once you assign a terminal to a specific group, only an assigned Group Administrator can view the list of terminal(s) within the group. Thus, if you wish to allow an Admin to control and manage terminals in the Default Group, remember to assign him/her as a Group Administrator at the Terminal Group tab. Please refer to the screenshots below for more details:

a. Device > FingerTec Terminal > Terminal Group - Added Default Group
b. Device > FingerTec Terminal > Manage Terminal - Option in Terminal Group selection

Following the latest release, there are now two new columns for ‘Weekday’ & ‘Day Type’.
