clock-in clock-out entry in ESS possible ?

hi there,

i am a little bit confused: my customer wants to enter time events for clock-in and clock-out in ESS. I can't find anything where this is possible.

When i implement cats in ESS it is not possible to enter clock-in and clock-out events.

what i have to do to let the users enter clock-in and clock-out time events ? the documentation is always talking about 'external time recording terminals'. i don't want that, i want to do it directly in ESS.

Any ideas ? 😊

br Martin

      As Siddharth said, you can also create entries with this application, even if the primary purpose is to allow corrections of the recorded clock-in/outs.

      There's no problem to use CATS also if you want. Both applications can be used for different purposes (CATS to record the working time on projects/tasks and clock-in/out to keep track of the in and outs).
