For Setting the PIN go to Employee Module under the go-to HR Settings tab there will be one field name PIN Code and from there it can be configured. Once the configuration is done click on the SAVE button and from now on the employee has to enter a PIN code which for Attendance Management purposes. 


Once the PIN Code is set, employees can go to the Attendance Module and they can see the Kiosk Mode tab there. As soon as they click on the Kiosk menu they will see the screen as mentioned below. 


On that screen, they will see the Check-in options and from there they need to select "Identify Manually".

Once they click on the option they will see the below-given screen. 


Employees need to use the PIN Code which is added under their Employee profile in the HR Settings tab. Once they enter the PIN Code and click on the OK button system will create their check-in/check-out entry.


Now let’s look at the second option:

It’s easy to set up and manage attendance and it will recognize based on their login information. Odoo Can automatically identify the employees and can directly allow them to do Check in/Check out from the Attendance Module.


The employees can check in from the Attendance Management Module with the Check-in button. Once they check in the check-in time will show right above the button.


Similarly, there will be a Check-Out button which can be used for sign-out purposes and check-out time will be displayed there. All the data will be saved into the database so the live attendance tracking is easily accessible.


All the attendance records are going to be recorded in the database. To check the attendance records we can see the attendance tab in the dashboard as shown below. 


Attendance can also be created from the attendance tab by clicking on the new button, a new field will appear as shown below.
