Attendance Tracking is now available in OrangeHRM 2.5-alpha.

OrangeHRM 2.5-alpha.8 development release is now available. The punch in/out feature which was combined with timesheets, is now separately available as “Attendance Tracking” with a new attendance report.

Separating Project Time and Punch In/Out
In the current version of OrangeHRM, project time and punch in/out time entry mechanisms are integrated in a single timesheet. The punch in/out was introduced as an easier way to enter time for organizations that do not want detailed information of time spent on projects and activities.
However, based on user feedback, some organizations use both these type of time entry mechanisms. Punch In/Out is basically used to track attendance and project time is used to track detailed information on time spent on various projects and activities.
To improve the usability of this feature, we have decided to separate these 2 time tracking functionalities. Further, there will be configurable options to restrict employees’ rights to edit already reported Punch In/Out time data.... read more

OrangeHRM With The Co-Founder and Vice President Of MySQL

Last week, at OrangeHRM, we met David Axmark - the co-founder and VicePresident of MySQL.

David is a very inspiring personnel who can reach the minds of the young developers with the loads of experience he has. At the beginning of his speech he stated what was the basis for his wonderful creation, MySQL. But major part of the speech represented the improvement of MySQL, its contribution to the modern software development, cons and pros of MySQL, how we can contribute to its further improvement and etc. Throughout the speech he compared the position of MySQL with other open source database softwares. But he never tried to flatter its superiority. One of the question raised by the audience was "According to your view what is the best database software in the world now". His answer was quiet humble which I never expected. " There's nothing called the best software in the world. All depends on the perception of the developers and the nature of the project undertaken". At the conclusion of his speech he gave a good advice to all of us. " What ever you do,whether it's big or small, give the best shot of your talents."... read more
