If you are a Kronos user, you may face the duplicate Kronos login ID issue that impacts on different options and pages. Kronos allows the users to register an employee a second time even using the same social security number. This issue hits in various fields like human capital management, payroll, productivity, efficiency, and so on. After identifying the duplicate entry, the system admin can remove or delete it. But there is also a chance to mistakenly remove both IDs and once they are removed, it cannot be undone.
Removing Duplicate IDs:
Whenever you are done with a few duplicate Kronos login IDs, first of all, you need to identify those IDs which you want to remove. Then go to the Employee Information page, select columns, and bring in the Delete Employee Item button. It allows the system admin to remove an employee record completely.
Update Your Settings:
To prevent duplicate login IDs, you can update your settings following these steps: Go to Company Settings> Global Policies Check Social Security is Required, and Social Security is Unique

RightPunch is a biometric time clock that requires the biometric data of the employees to be enrolled. The integrated biometric identification system is capable of identifying duplicate entries and preventing users from enrolling more than one time. But, you should be specific about the required biometric. That means if you enroll fingerprints, specify the fingers which should be enrolled.
