Using WebClock with Shugo HUB

WebClock 3.0 can be embedded directly within the Shugo HUB. Employees can punch in and out and access the SwipeClock Employee Self Service Portal through a single sign-on. The following article explains the steps necessary for implementing WebClock in HUB.

Integrating Shugo HUB

Implementing WebClock 3.0 into the Shugo HUB requires
  • an integration between Execupay and TimeWorksPlus
  • downloading the app from the Shugo LOFT
  • getting the following information from SwipeClock*:

  • The Accountant Menu is where you
    can access or generate your API key.
    • The SwipeClock API key which is found in the Accountant Menu as pictured.
    • Your SwipeClock Accountant ID which you will also see when you click on the Accountant Level Secret Management link. It can also be obtained from your SwipeClock Channel Development Manager.
*NOTE: The API key and Accountant ID are only needed for an initial setup of the app. Once you set this up for your first TimeWorksPlus client, you will not need it again to set up additional clients.

Getting the SwipeClock App for HUB

The app is found in LOFT store under "SwipeClock". Additional information on how to use LOFT apps can be found in Shugo's Knowledge Base through the following link.

Adding Companies to the App

The preceding steps to integrate WebClock with Shugo only need to be performed once, not per client. After it is done, enabling the app for one or more companies is done with the following steps.
  1. On the HUB LOFT page, select the TimeWorksPlus WebClock app.
  2. Click the + to the right of companies.
  3. Search for your companies by their Execupay Company Cd. This should also be the same as the Client Tag in TimeWorksPlus. Do not use the SwipeClock Client ID.

WebClock & IP Restrictions

An employee mush have WebClock Enabled in Employee Setup to access both the WebClock and Employee Self Service through Shugo. If they try to access either and they are not allowed to use the WebClock, the will see the following message:

IMPORTANT: At this time, using the IP filter to restrict WebClock to certain computers on your client's network will also restrict an employee from accessing ESS through the Shugo app. This is a known issue and will be addressed in a future update to the system. This issue has been resolved as of December 15th.
