How can I combine a barcode scanner with attendances and sales orders?

Hello fellow Odoo'ers,

For a client of mine I am trying to combine barcode scanning with attendances and sales order. What they want to do is the following.

  1. For starting and ending a work day scan a barcode of the user and of "Sign in" or "Sign out" so working hours are registred in Odoo.
  2. Use the timesheet part of attendances so that when a sales order is scanned and the user scans his name it is combined so that on his time sheet the time worked on that sales order is visible and on the sales order we can find who worked on it and for how long.

Is that possible within Odoo? Anybody?

If there are any questions please let me know and I will try to make it clearer.

It is possible threw Odoo.

Install following module.


Try it.


How will this help me? This only created barcodes. I am using Odoo 8 btw forget to mention that, sorry! Odoo 8 does this perfectly, but I cannot combine it with attendance and sales orders.

There is at least one project that aims to build a fingerprint scanner that feeds data into Odoo/OpenERP's attendance Module. The code is hosted here https://github.com/saasier1/saasier_public_addons/tree/master/fingerprint_scanner 

There was great interest on the Community mailing list towards that but it feels a little this is stuck a little (even if it looked like it was almost ready to go)

some threads in the help forum
