trying to add attendance later fails

I have a timesheet and noticed that for one date I have forgotten to login/logout, but have booked activities. When trying to add a LogIn or LogOut for this day, I always get the error: "Error: Sign in (resp. Sign out) must follow Sign out (resp. Sign in)".

Of course, there are a bunch of login-logouts for the days after the missing day. So how can I create these 2 entries??

regards, Tilli

Another example: Let's say, a user forgot to sign out for a long break. Several days later, the user wants you to add the sign_out and corresponding sign_in entry. ERROR!

This is currently broken on all versions. I created an issue on github:

If an employee has forgotten to sign out on leaving, and in the next day try to sign in then the warning error mesage shows.

Solution:   In the Human Resource --> Attendance screen search the particular Employee using the search box and remove default Filter "Today". Create New record with Employee last date and Action Sign Out.
