The time tracking add-on for Dynamics 365 allows employees to track their work efforts and occurred cost for assigned tasks in the form of time entries. The application helps employees to plan and control the progress with the project.  

Time registration workers can enter clock in, clock out, register indirect activities, and absence registration. In companies that use Time and attendance, your workers must register the time that they spend at work and their attendance. Likewise, some companies may only require workers to register clocking-in and clocking-out times.  

Whereas in others, workers may also be required to register time consumption on the actual tasks they perform as well as their allocated breaks.  

Moreover, the intended users of Time and attendance are: 

  1. Workers, who are required to register time and attendance at regular intervals: daily, weekly or bi-weekly. 
  2. Supervisors, managers, and payroll officers who calculate, approve, and transfer worker registrations for further processing. 

Registrations on projects, project activities, indirect activities, absence codes, and overtime and flex time will be recorded and are used to calculate payroll in both modules. Here in this example, let’s record time entry for absence.

Step 2:  Insert your username and password for the login which will display after opening the CRM in the browser.  After you login it will open a dashboard as shown in the figure below
