There are 2 ways to record data, either by uploading a file or by copying & paste function in the corresponding areas on the application interface.
-From the main menu “Employees” – “Import real attendance
-Upload the file to the “Upload a file” area or copy and paste the desired data into the “Paste from Excel” area

In this step you will choose what each column means. At this point you will be able to choose between:

-Full name
-Internal number (this field is required)
-Start time (this field is required)
-Closing time (this field is required)
-Date (this field is required)


-For fields that contain data type information, make sure that you format these columns in the file, and then choose the correct format when assigning the fields.

3. Data validation

In the validation part, if there are duplicates you will choose what happens to each of these data.

Either change the data to resolve conflicts and import the data, or skip that row.

Make the desired selections and click “Next” to continue.

You will be informed later about the actions that will be taken for your data. If you agree with this conclusion, click “Next“.
