The Tempora prompt is a tool to remind staff to complete their timesheets. The Tempora prompt links the staff members machine to Tempora. When a timesheet is late the prompt can then send the user a notification, pop up or even lock the machine until the staff member submits their timesheet. The guide below will show you how the prompt settings are configured globally for all staff.

Delay days - The number of days before actively prompting for a late timesheet. If a value of one is set and a timesheets last active day is Sunday the staff member will be prompted Monday.
Prompt interval (minutes) - The number of minutes following a prompt before successive checks to see if prompting is still required.
Recheck days - The number of days to wait after finding a timesheet that does not require prompting before rechecking to see if the timesheet now requires prompting. Normally set to 1.
Behaviour No prompting - The prompt will not activate even if timesheets are late.
Behaviour non-insistent (show browser) - The prompt will activate and show a Tempora pop-up window the user can close or complete their timesheet in.
