A company may have a fully functional system to track down and record everything thing related to the company and its employees. However, it may face difficulties in uploading data relating to attendance. On most occasions, companies might not be able to upload all the data relating to a specific period at once through their systems. For example, a system may not allow the user to upload a week's attendance date at once instead the system only allows the user to upload date one by one for each day of the week.
With OrangeHRM an HR professional need not worry about such things as the system can easily upload attendance data without any trouble at all. This feature allows HR Admins to upload attendance data into the OrangeHRM system as preferred. Also, the user can upload the attendance data via a biometric device as well. However, the file format needs to be a CSV (a sample is available to download), having the following naming scheme: attendance_ymd.csv'. Eg: attendance_191014.csv
To access this feature go to: Time>Attendance>Data upload. The 'Attendance Data Upload' screen is displayed below.
Step 1: Click 'Download' (The button next to 'Sample CSV File') option mentioned in the above screen. By doing so, the user can enter the attendance date according to the required format.
Step 2: Click the 'Select File' button. Upon clicking this button the following window is activated.
Step 3: Select the desired CSV file from the above window and click 'Open'.
Step 4: Click 'Upload' when the preferred CSV file has been chosen.
Note: The file processing task needs to be set once a day/week. Please contact support to set up the frequency. Also, the system is only capable of uploading a CSV file with a file size of 2MB.
