Question / Issue

Can I modify the prompts/text on our clocks/terminals?


Answer / Solution

Terminal prompts can be modified to read differently depending on the  business needs. Some can change the prompts to be in different languages, with certain character limitations. To accomplish this, you will need access to the WinRemote application of TimeClock Plus and the following steps:


  1. Open WinRemote
  2. Select the port of the clock you want to change the prompts for
  3. In the Port Configuration window under Settings, select Prompts
  4. Click on Edit prompts


  1. In the Select Prompt File window, click Add
  2. Name the file and select the dimensions of the clock (100/200 Series clock, GT-400, etc.)
  3. Click Ok


  1. In the new window, expand your prompts for the operation type that you would like to change
  2. The original text will appear on the left side window and the new/edited  text will appear on the right side window
  3. Click Save


  1. In the Prompts window, select the prompt file that you created from the drop down list
  2. Click Ok


When the terminal restarts, the new prompts will appear according to the clock operations that are performed.
