Guide to Collection Details for ExakTime Connect

The Collection details are used to view time records in their "raw" form before they are processed to the time cards and are affected by things such as roundings, deletions, and more.  It can also show more information that is not normally seen on the time cards such as the specific device used to clock in/out or the employee that was signed in when a record was created.

Go to Tools and click on Collection Details.



A. The top half of the collection details will show the devices that have been used to send in time records to ExakTime Connect and when they last communicated information. Clicking on any of the devices will filter the bottom half of collection details to records sent from the selected device.

B. The bottom half of the collection details will show all of the time records received by ExakTime Connect based on the date range. You may see a series of tabs such as:

  • Assigned - This is generally where you will be reviewing your employees' punches.
  • Unassigned
  • Punches

The bottom half will have seven columns by default. They correspond to:

  • Touch Date: When the time record was created.
  • Employee: The employee associated with the time record.
  • Cost Code: The cost code associated with the time record.
  • Location: The location associated with the time record.
  • Session Date: When the time record was sent.
  • Logged In: The user that was signed/logged in who created the time record.
  • Device: The device that was used to create the time record.

  • When an employee clocked in/out down to the seconds.


  • If another employee clocked in on behalf of another employee using the Clock For function on ExakTime Mobile.


  • When a record was sent and received.
