KB0020: Assigning a Proximity Badge – TimeVue & TimeSource
Assigning badges to an employee is done through the TimeVue or TimeSource Software.
- Before you enter Badge/ID numbers for your Proximity cards, first choose an ID Length in the Timeclock Rules screen.
Next you will ensure that the employee Badge/PIN corresponds to the lasts digits assigned on the proximity card.
- The ID Length is the number of digits you want to use for your employee ID number. (The default is 3 digits).
- I.e. If the badge has a number  and your software is set to accept ID length of 4 digits, the Badge/PIN number should be set to 8569.
Note: If you have a lot of employees, you may want to select, at least, an ID length of 4 to avoid any possible duplication in the ID numbers.
