Adding a New Clock in Avanti

Once you have received a new clock from Avanti, please complete the following to set up your clock on Clock Connect.

Before making changes in Avanti, you will need to:

  • Connect the clock to the network

  • Turn on the clock

  • Locate the email from Avanti with the clock information

Step 1: Open Clock Connect on the Avanti Self-Service Portal.

Step 2: Select Add Clock.

Step 3:  Enter the Clock ID and Description. This is for identification purposes only. 

Additional Information
Once Save Changes is selected, Clock Id cannot be changed.

Step 4: Update the Serial Number, Clock Type, and Current Com Key to the information provided by Avanti. 

Step 5: Select the time zone for the clock’s location in Time Zone.

Step 6: Select how employees can verify their identity using a combination of facial recognition, fingerprint recognition, passwords and swipe cards in Verification Types.

  • Verification types with a / between them allow employees to verify using either method.

  • Verification types with an & between them require employees to verify using both methods.

Additional Information
For greater flexibility, we recommend selecting Face/Fingerprint/Password/Card for the verification type, then enrolling employees based on your need; this comes in handy when a time clock can’t recognize an employee using your preferred verification method.

Step 7: Select the Punch Type for the F1.

Additional Information
The Punch Type you select here won’t update the clock display; it only impacts Avanti’s punch type when the employee selects the corresponding option when punching on the clock.

Step 8: Select the Punch Type for F2 through F6 as needed.

Step 9: Select Save Changes.

Step 10: Select the Clock Id on the Log File tab, then click View Log File.

Confirm the new clock has come online. You’ll know the clock is online when you see a recent entry similar to this.

Additional Information
Not seeing your clock come online in Avanti? Try rebooting your clock from the inset reset button under the flap on the left side of the clock.
If the clock still isn’t coming online, we’re here to help; please reach out to us!

Step 11: Select Set DST on clock on the Maintain Clocks tab once the clock has come online.
Important Information
Please skip this step if the clock is in Saskatchewan.

Congratulations! You have successfully set up the clock on Clock Connect. You’re now ready to add employees to the clock.
