Does anyone use Moodle as a timeclock?

I am looking for a way to implement a software based time-clock system for my student employees, and it seems to me that a Moodle module would work quite well.

My students already have controlled/secure access to Moodle, so if there were a module that they could use to punch in and out with, that would be a simple solution.

Have you looked at the reports/logs that show student activity?

Something similar to the database module may be used to achieve the desired effect. Either one entry in and one entry out, or one entry for in and out. But the standard module is far from adequate and some further development would be required, e.g. limit number of entries per day, and lock enty after punching out. smile

I actually use it for this purpose! I created a Moodle account called Time Clock having a dedicated email account for this purpose. Students send this account a simple "in" message upon clocking in and an "out" message to clock out. It sends these entries to my dedicated email account where I have an assistant pull the time stamped "in" and "out" to an Excel spreadsheet to calculate the time.

If you want a copy of the spreadsheet, simply email me at pjohnson@pvusd.us. My Moodle site is located at http:/rcoe.pvusd-bly.org.

Hope this helps!

I think it is better to implement a dedicated employee time tracking system. Now there are many affordable automated time tracking devices available in the market.
