Force Users to input their time

Last Modified: 2010-04-18
I working for a small company of 60 employess. We have a Windows 2003 AD enviroment and a mix of XP and 2000 Pro clients. We use a time and attendance program called ShopVue which is made by Casco. I member of our senior management team posed the following question to me. "Once a user logs into windows would it be possible to  block access to any network resources if they haven't inputted their time for the previous day??" The SHopvue application does authenicate users using their windows login information. I've already check with Casco and they said this is something that they do not handle.
Watch Question

AD isn't going to do this natively - its job is to process authentication, not to enforce business rules.


But there a script of something that could quire the Casco database to see if the user inputted thier time in for the previous day?
