Linking an external punch clock to Airtable?

Is there a way that i could link an external punch clock to an airtable base? I need to set up a system but don’t want to change the employees habit of punching in/out with the existing box. Any help/advise?

Airtable has a number of built-in integrations, but a punch clock is pretty specific. Where do you usually view the punch clock data? It’s possible you could use Zapier (an external service) to sync your data to Airtable.

Welcome to the Airtable community!

How do you currently get the data from the punch clock, and can the punch clock provide the data in other ways? For example, is the clock attached to a computer? Is the clock hooked up to a service provider that has an API?

Are you looking for a workflow involving a human using Airtable directly? For example, a human importing a CSV file that was created by the clock.

Or are you looking for a workflow that does not involve a human at all? (This is much more complex and would require connecting to a cloud-based service.)
