Changing an employee's PIN

To change an employee's PIN, your employee role must have the following rights enabled in Settings Employee Roles:

  • Settings - Basic
  • Settings - Employee Setup

Changing an employee's PIN is helpful in the event that an employee has forgotten it. Even if your employee has an impeccable memory, we recommended changing their PIN on a weekly or monthly basis for security purposes.

  1. From the main menu, click SettingsEmployee Setup. The current active employee accounts are listed.
    Note: To view archived employee accounts, click Show ArchivedSearch.
  2. Click your employee's first or last name.
  3. From the left menu, click Sign In.
  4. From the Set New PIN field, enter your employee's new PIN.
  5. Click Save Changes.
