Timesheet software can be configured so employees across multiple Microkeeper organisations can clock in from the same Fingerprint scanner.
When configuring the User Settings of the Timesheet software, set the Username with organisations separated by an "@" symbol.
A setup like below will allow employees from both "org1" and "org2" to clock in from the same fingerprint scanner.
When the Timesheet software is configured for multiple organisations, assigning fingerprints to employees will not be available.
Instead you will need to reconfigure the Username under User Settings to a single organisation to assign the fingerprint to that employee.
