Can you recommend some In/Out Board Software to Track Employees? I am looking for a web application that uses SQL Server as a backend. An application that can track employees out of the office, in meetings, or at home sick.

    Can you be more elaborate on your current infrastructure? How many employees? How many people need to see the whole board at once?
    If you had a Cisco VoIP system you could implement Unified Presence. See at a glance if someone is in, out, on the phone, or let users create custom status messages. Add that on top of a wireless location aware system, layered with a Cisco physical security system (card swipe, etc) and get their location automatically in Presence. Integrated with Active Directory you'll know if they are logged in to the network.
    Else a quick Google comes up with several solutions. Here's one

    You can find a lot of free open source programs here:

    type "employee" and you will find the results,
    sort the results by the Rank, and see how many people downloaded it,
    then pick and download :)

    If you want to extend from simply in/out to many clocking in/out and then linking this to a payroll system, then a "Time and Attendance" application may be of use.

    If this is the situation you are in (or going to be), getting a good support contract would be important as complex things like flexi-time and shift patterns can get VERY complicated to setup accurately.

    There about 120 employees who will need to see to whole board. Likely about 5 administrators who would be changing it, but the other employees could change it as well. Something that will work with IIS on our Intranet web server and have a SQL Server backend. It the program can intregrate with AD that would be nice, but not required.

    These look promising.
