Daily Activity Log
What is the daily activity log?
When we configure the product for the first time, and assign a schedule to the employee or his/her work center, we will already have a predetermined work schedule. If an employee works every day within his/her predefined schedule without variations, there will be no need to do anything more to get his/her monthly summary of worked hours (the application will apply those that correspond to his/her schedule).
However, if one day there is an incident, it may be that you work a schedule ouside the normal one, or temporarily absent to go to the doctor, it will be necessary to specify it using the working Hours Report.
Reported by Human Resources.
If it will be the administration employees who will be responsible for discharging the incidents to the schedule, these users can access the hours report from the employee card, through the Worked Hours action in the Process menu, or from the employee list in the Process menu.
Reported by the Employees Themselves
If employees have a user with whom to access Dyanmics 365 Business Central they will be able to report their hours themselves, as long as they have assigned the permission set "IDYN-WHR User" and are linked to an employee. To do this, the users will be able to access the report page by searching for Worked Hours in the search engine of the product.
Daily Activities Log
Either by the actions of the employee file, or by the search engine of Dyanmics 365 Business Central, we will arrive at a list in which we will be able to see the days for which it exists worker report as well as the total number of hours reported for that day.
Within the daily activity document we can indicate the date of the report, and a list of time slotes in which to indicate the hours worked that day, as well as absences.
For each time slot, we can indicate whether ordinary, overtime or extraordinary hours have been worked. Likewise, we can report absences within the working time (e.g. doctor's visit).
Note: it is not necessary those absences that are recoverable. If an employee is absent an hour to do some personal task, the only thing he/she will have to report is the schedule (real) in which he/she has worked, detailing when he/she were absent and when he/she made up that hour.
For absences that occupy the entire day, and that may last several days (e.g. medical leave, holidays), the report can be made on a daily basis, or reported using the report from absences Dynamics 365 Business Central standard.
