Your goal as a manager is to keep track of your employees’ time and attendance. You cannot be there every time they have to clock in or out, however. The Employee attendance tracker keeps tabs on them for you, enabling you to review their clock in and out times at a later date.
This free customized employee attendance tracker allows you to adjust the parameters to fit the model for your business. The Microsoft Excel Template allows you to quickly and easily compare actual attendance to custom schedules and generate easy to understand reports.

Employee Attendance Tracker Tips and Tricks
This template works equally well for large and small companies alike. Different templates can be used in different departments and combined to form comprehensive reports.
Remember to save all information to a dependable back-up. You may find that you need this information when it is time to discuss discrepancies with an employee and may need to be available for legal review in the event of a termination.
Take care to make the color coding intelligible and have a key as part of the document to explain the colors. Green for being present and red for being absent may make sense to most, but they could be confused about yellow and purple fields.
This Employee Attendance Tracker template is highly recommended for all businesses with hourly employees or billable hours. It provides a indispensable record for both employees and management alike.
