Does I/NET Seven provide Time and Attendance functionality
I/NET Seven 2.xx and above
Third Party Time and Attendance solution
Possible alternatives to Customers wanting to use or interface Time and Attendance solutions with I/NET.
I/NET does not have a separate Time and Attendance ‘module’. There are three possible options which may provide a suitable alternative to your requirements:
I/NET’s SevenReports provides a standard report called “Transactions Attendance”. The report compares the time stamp for an individual and calculates the time within zones defined in I/NET. I/NET doors must be configured with entry and exit readers and have defined Zones (i.e. Anti-pass back must be enabled). It could be as simple as a single zone for the entire site or multiple zones if this is required.
This report shows EACH transaction received, therefore if you badge multiple times on the entry or exit readers the system calculates the time difference from the last badge. This must be taken into account by any system when calculating the total time within the “Zone”.
Automatic Report Generation (Export of SevenReports to CSV):
Using the same report as mentioned above, I/NET is capable of automatically exporting this document to a CSV file. This can be scheduled to run as required for any third party system to use.
Third Party Access to InetDb SQL database
This option allows third party SQL connections to query the I/NET SQL Database (Read only access), utilizing a predefined login or the INetThirdParty login. The third party software or application would query data from the InetDb SQL database.
For further information and configuration of these features are all available in the same document, TCON301 – Database Connectivity and Reporting.
