Connect a real time NFC clock to Toggl with Ubiqod and Make

Toggl is a great tool to track activities. It is primarily made for office workers, but thanks to Ubiqod, you can also use it to connect field workers through NFC clocks, touchless clocks or QR codes.

NFC clock to Toggl Track

In this tutorial, we will connect a NFC clock to Toggl to track activities of field employees.

The user journey is as follow:

An employee arrives on site and clocks in with his NFC badge => this starts a task/job in Toggl

When the employee leaves => this stops the task/job in Toggl

We will use Make, a no code tool, to implement the logic of the system.

Make scenario

If you are not familiar with Make, you can start here.

Make scenario for Toggl

The Make scenario is implemented as follow:

We receive data from Ubiqod with the trigger “Receive Data From Trackers”

We use a router with filters to check if this is an arrive or a depart

If we have an Arrive, we start a new job/task and store its id into a data store depending on the user id

If we have a Depart, we retrieve the ongoing task/job from the user in the data store and stop the corresponding task/job

You can use the following blueprint. You will have to replace the workspace_id in the url and body of the Arrive Toggl action, and the project_id (this can be a dynamic parameter).

Ubiqod configuration

In your Ubiqod backend:

Create a badge list in the interface section

For each badge number, associate an external reference (for instance “toggl_id”), like this:

external references for NFC clocking

Create a Clock S interface and associate the previously created badge list (in the OPTIONS section)

Associate your clocks (trackers) to this interface and to the Make connector created before. Site is optional, and can be used as Toggl tags for instance.

You can use the simulator to test your new App!
