  2. Close the Clock screen. Go to Get Punch Data and select Poll All Clocks and poll your time clocks.

If you are using TimeVue:

  1. Go to the Time Clocks Screen and click on the RESET ALL CLOCKS icon at the top of this screen.
  2. Close the Time Clocks screen. Go to Poll Time Clock and Poll All Clocks
  3. After the clock is polled, the employee data on the time clock should be synchronized with the software.
