How SAP HR Handles dummy clock in/out time data?


Dear all,

I have a question whether SAP HR has the function to handle dummy clock in/out time data.

The scenario is like this:

For an employee, his

daily work schedule: 8:00 to 17:30,

break time for meal: 12:15 to 13:00.

Employees always have dummy clock in/out time events. For example, when an employee arrives the company, he clocks at the first floor at 7:45, after he arrives fourth floor (his workplace), he forgets whether he has clocked in or not, then he will clock at the fourth floor at 7:50 again. Assume this employee is very muddle-headed and repeats this mistake many times a day, then his clock in/out event may become:

7:45, 7:50, 12:15, 12:17, 12:50, 12:59, 17:35

Assume all the time events are entered to SAP, then the time pairs will be formed like:

In out work hours

7:45 - 7:50 0

12:15 - 12:17 0

12:50 - 12:59 0

17:35 - ??? No clock out

Then this employee will be in trouble for that day.

We can know that in the above clock events, 7:50, 12:17, 12:59 are dummy ones. If the SAP HR can compare with the daily work schedule and remove them before time evaluation, then there will not be problem.

Could anybody advise on this issue? Thanks a lot.
