how to track Attendance (overtime worked, hrs owed to the company)?

on 8/28/13, 10:16 PM 3,192 views


I want to track attendance of each employee and give a report to each one at the end of the month. This report should list:

attendance per day (sign in | sign out | total hrs | difference (relative to 'Working Schedule') Leaves (legal, unpaid, sick leaves, etc.)

Additionally I need to show the total of (+ or - hrs) of all previous months, so everybody always knows the status of overtime being worked or hrs due to the company.
Furthermore it should be possible to 'zero' these +/- hours by paying for overtime or deducting hrs owed to the company from salary payment.

What we don't need (yet) is tracking time spent for different projects (I think that is what timesheets is made for) as a controlling tool. Just simple a track of hours/days that have been worked, in relation to hours that should have been worked (defined in the 'Working Schedule' in contracts).

We are experimenting with Attendance and an older Modul 'Attendance_Analysis' (which we are adopting to work in v7), but have not come really 'to the point' yet. Any hints from this forum whether we might be on the right track, or should look in a different direction would be helpful.

Clarification: hr_attendance_analysis is already available for OpenERP 7: https://www.openerp.com/apps/7.0/hr_attendance_analysis

@Lorenzo when I try to install this version it gives error: "Error End time 4.43333333333 < start time 4.43333333333" which source I can't find (first it gave error that in calendar_report.py it can't find module report which I fixed by adding openerp. in front of report so that it can find report module of openerp)

Laura, I can install the module without problems. If you can reproduce the problem on a new db and describe the steps to reproduce it, please report a bug at https://bugs.launchpad.net/hr-timesheet

For empty db installation worked but it is still not working right so reported it to launchpad...
