Project description

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/hr-attendance Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module extends the functionality of HR Attendance in order to allow the logging of employee attendances using an RFID based employee attendance system.

Table of contents


To use this module, you need to use an external system that calls the method ‘register_attendance’ of the model ‘hr.employee’ passing as parameter the code of the RFID card.

Developers of a compatible RFID based employee attendance system should be familiar with the outputs of this method and implement proper calls and management of responses.

It is advisory to create an exclusive user to perform this task. As user doesn’t need several access, it is just essential to perform the check in/out, a group has been created. Add your attendance device user to RFID Attendance group.


  1. The HR employee responsible to set up new employees should go to ‘Attendances -> Manage Attendances -> Employees’ and register the RFID card code of each of your employees. You can use an USB plugged RFID reader connected to your computer for this purpose.

  2. The employee should put his/her card to the RFID based employee attendance system. It is expected that the system will provide some form of output of the registration event.
