A timestamp is generally a record of the time or an event. In attendance parlance, Timestamp is the recording of the attendance of an employee.
The Attendance system automatically calculates the attendance in and out time. At certain times the attendance may not be captured due to various reasons like
- employee may have forgotten to mark/swipe in the attendance
- the employee was traveling on an official business
- An issue in the Attendance system etc.
These issues can be changed/ updated by Timestamp Change Request.
