I have an idea about keeping track of employee hours on a database: this database will be populated by the normal hours the employees work: therefore if someone is late or out the supervisor only has to go and edit the data and saves time from having to put hours in each day for everyone.
I was able to populate the data of one person on a table, call it Hours_worked:
fields: name; emp_id; account_uid; norm_hours_worked; date.
I wrote up an edit page in php and everything works fine, only problem is I cannot populate the table with more than one employee. There must be a better way to do this although I want to keep if possible the idea of pre-populating the data. I can make a table for each employee but just looking for better way.
