Odoo 14 Community Edition


The Odoo ERP Attendance Management module allows you to record the attendance and details of every employee who logged into the respective organization. This module helps you to record not only the attendance but also count the working hours of each employee. So that you can easily understand the working capability of your employees. Moreover, the module will reduce the workload of the HR department.

The Attendance module available in Odoo can be installed from the Odoo Apps. If you are entered into the installed Attendance module, you will be welcomed with a Check-in- Check out window as depicted below.

The Check-in arrow available on the window will allow you to log into the module. Upon selecting this arrow, you will be displayed with a welcome note where you can view your check-in time. In the same way, you can check out using the same arrow. Your check-in time and check-out time will be recorded in the module. The module also provides you the provision to configure pins or barcodes to allow the employee to log their attendance to the system. To do this you can go to Attendance ->Configuration. Then you will be directed to the settings window of the Odoo Attendance module where you can check the box near the option Employee PIN to enable the option. After enabling the option, don’t forget to save the changes by clicking on the Save button. The image of the window is showcased below.

The Pin can then be used by the employee to log their attendance. After enabling the pin this can be used in Kiosk mode. In the Kiosk mode, the menu navigation is deactivated and the employee can access the Check-in/Check-out. This can be done by scanning a badge or using the Pin assigned to the employee. The Odoo Kiosk attendance mode provides the facility for an employee to record his or her attendance manually or using their badges or pin. All of your company attendance will be kept digitally and this technique is more accurate and specific than the traditional manual time tracking. The Attendance module is very useful for the Accounting and HR team for tracking and managing employee attendance and employee timings effectively.

Now let us see how to use the Kiosk mode with employee Pin. Initially, you can select the respective employee on selecting the Employee menu available in the Attendance module. For getting the Employee menu, you can go to Employee -> Manager -> Employees. The below image depicts the Employee window.
