Need Employee time clock for Sharepoint 2.0

Posted on 2012-09-11

I need to quickly set up a simple time clock service in Sharepoint 2.0.  Very little experience in Sharepoint. I downloaded the sample Timsheet app for Sharepoint 2.0 from microsoft but when I go to edit or update the employee timesheets it brings up a page of XML code. I imagine it needs Infopath which we don't have.

Is there any alternative? Thanks. We just need to allow a handful of people to enter their work time like a time clock so that our payroll person can then download a CSV or similar file. I thought it would be easy with Sharepoint.

    I'm a huge fan of doing lots of things in SharePoint, but if you are really a novice with the platform it doesn't make much sense to try and implement a time clock solution with SharePoint.  Because for less than a couple hundred bucks you can get a reasonably good program to do the job...

    Alternatively, if it is just time sheets, then create an Excel document and import that into SharePoint.  (FYI, use SharePoint Designer to configure your sites if you want more controls over things)
