Need Automatic Attendance Tracking by Logon/Logoff

    Does anyone know of any software that Automatically Records the logon/logoff
    times of users for the purpose of attendance or time tracking.

    I have a Windows Server 2003 SBS SP1 with about 8 XP SP2 Pro workstations.
    I want to be able to have the Office manager be able to easily view all the
    logon and logoff times for all the employees in one central location.

    I don't want them to have to logon or punch into a separate time tracking

    I see that it if employee logon hours are set from the server that I can go
    back through the server's event viewer and find logon times. I have seen some
    programming examples for automatically parsing the event viewer for this data.

    Are there any out of the box solutions? (Spent 2 hours looking online with
    no luck) Please help. Thanks.

    Take a look at Softrack. You can find it at I
    think they give free online web demos (one on one) to answer your specific
    questions. I think you can get reports that you're looking for.

  3. I have done the same thing:

    login.bat = echo %username% logged on to %computername% on %date% at %time%

    logoff.bat = echo %username% logged off %computername% on %date% at %time%
    This produces a running list of logon/logoff times for the user for as long
    as you care to run it.

    Of course, there's no reason to apply this script to your own account - your
    %username%.txt file should be manually editied.
