Support for the Java applet timeclock is being removed. We will discontinue support on January 31st, 2018. You will no longer be able to use the "Java Applet Timeclock" beginning March 1, 2018.

If you are currently using the Java applet timeclock you need to prepare for the migration instructions being published on/before 1st of February 2018.


What does this mean for "Java Applet Timeclock" users?

Between the announcement and removal dates, easyemployer will not make updates to the Java Applet Timeclock interface or correct bug fixes.

At the removal date, if you are still using the Java Applet Timeclock; all function will no longer work.


Why is easyemployer removing this?

The removal of the old roster interface is threefold:

  • Depending on your policy for updating your Java installation; this updating process may make the fingerprint scanner not function.
  • To correct this; protracted troubleshooting and an advanced understanding of Windows and associated applications is required.
  • We have developed a standalone solution that addressed these reliability issues, and (in some circumstances) provide moderate performance improvements.
