Allowing/Restricting PIN Entry at Clocks (Manual Clock Settings / Keypad entry restrictions)

Clocks can allow an employee to clock in via PIN entry. However, if the client requires the employee to clock in via the below methods and the clock supports these methods this can be changed so that employees that try to clock IN/OUT via a PIN only punch will be rejected:

- Magnetic Swipe Card
- Proximity Card / Fobb
- Biometrics (Finger / Hand)
