The Kiosk attendance mode is a feature included in the attendance module in odoo. OpenERP Attendance Management allows you with the details of every employee who logged in to the company office. The Staff or employee can also sign in or sign out at the end of the day as this allows you to know how much number of hours an employee is giving you. Further with this you can judge the working capabilities of your employees and this factor sometimes considered as important during appraisals.
