What’s New In This Update
Recently we released the latest update V1.1.3 of our Attendance extension. Many bug fixes were made but most importantly some prominent features were added.
Some might seem very simple tweaks but they are bound to very effective for the overall process of your employee attendance system
Improved Attendance Report
With the newest update, employees are gonna see a better overview of their total working days. They will now be able to see
- Presence Percentage: percentage of their presence
- Missing Checkout: number of missing checkouts
- Office Time: total number of office time based on working days
- Attended For: total number of attended time based on present days
- Worked Time: number of time you worked for
- Loss Time: time that was lost(Attended For Time-Worked Time)
- Avg Worked: the average of working time
Attendance Report For HR (Date/Employee Based)
The previous version of Attendance didn’t have automatic report generation for the HR to get a complete overview of the organization’s employees.
This time it’s different!
Now the HR can see a full report of his/her employees based on two options.
- Attendance Report(Date Based): This report shows detailed information for the HR based on date. HR can select Location, Department, Month to filter out the information along with two charts compiling different information. In the summary section, it will show the number of
- Total days: total time the HR selected from filtering option
- Average Present: avg of the number of present combined from all employees
- Total Holidays: number of holidays for that time
- Average Absent: employee absent average for that duration
- Average Late: employee late time average for that duration
- Total Work Days: number of working days for the selected time
- Average Leave: avg of the leave for the time selected
- Average Early Leave: avg number of early leave by all employees for that time
- Attendance Report(Employee Based): Employee based report will show all the employees in a list with their information. In the list, the HR will be able to see-
- Present: Total number of present days for that employee
- Leave: How many days the employee took a leave
- Absent: Number of absent days
- Worked: Total number of working hours
- Avg. Work: The average number of working hours
- Avg. Check-in: Checkin average time
- Avg. Check out: Average of the time the employee checked out
CSV Export For Attendance Report
Now the HR manager will be able to export a detailed report about all its employees in CSV format file. They can later use the platform-independent file in any way they see fit.
Check in & Working Time Overview Right From Self Checkout Widget
The self-widget was a really useful feature of the Attendance extensions.
This time it’s even better!
Employees will now be able to see the number of time that has gone by after check out and check-in time on the left side.
Alert When Trying To Check Out Early
Did you press the button by mistake or intentionally before work hour?
But it’s better to be safe for your employees or even for the HR who has to fix these issues manually. Now a pop up will show every time you will press the checkout button early.
Email For Attendance Reminder
You don’t have to listen to your employees forgetting to check in even if they attended the office on time. An email reminder option for attendance has been added this time around. It is as simple as marking a checkbox.
An email will be sent to your employees if they forget to check in even after the grace period you set beforehand.
You can even configure the email to your requirements. You can set the email subject, heading, the body of the email(you can add media to the email).
To make things even easier, there are template tags for employee name and date so you don’t have to manually set them up each time.
Quick Check in & Check out
In the latest update, a separate check in & check out has been added to the top right section for the convenience of your employees. They will be able to check in/out from any part of the website(apart from the actual check in/check out page).
