A beautiful and relevant feature which describes how Odoo is more easy to use and how they considered making more user-friendly options. Well, here we are discussing and let's see the overall working of kiosk mode.

If I try to enter the Wrong pin will throw
A good feature for Odoo to make the employee Attendance logs much easier and this will update the backend entries as
