AttendView Web-Based Client
What is AttendView Web-Based Client?
AttendView Web-Based Client was developed to allow access to the
AttendView Clock from various operating systems and to overcome the
need to install a client application. This only replaces the
clock version at this time and you will need to use AttendView tools to
edit company data or run reports.
Having a web based client also means that the clock is now accessible
via any mobile browser as well. This allows mobile users to
access the clock from anywhere in the world (*Note 1 for more info) or just
from within the office when they're away from their desk.
Managers can quickly see who's in or out and employees can quickly
check if they've forgotten to clock in or out without having to go back
to their desk.
How much is it?
Absolutely nothing! We've developed and released this as a free
add on for our customers. All we ask in return is that you let us
know what you think and report any bugs found.
You must be a current license holder of the AttendView Network version

Glossary - Common terms used on this page
and their explanation.
Known Issues - Issues that we have
identified with the application and their current status
Bugs - If you discover a bug or

- Access from anywhere requires either a VPN setup or for the
AttendView server to be exposed to the outside network. Both
options have their pros and cons and should be setup by an IP
professional. AttendView does not offer any assistance or support
with either of these technologies.
- 127.0.0.1:8080 may look like a confusing number, but
breaking it down explains whats going on. 127.0.0.1 is the local
IP number of this machine and 8080 is the port the web server is
listening on. If you are running your own web server such as IIS
and you skipped step 5, then this port number will be different.
I will likely be 80, but you should consult with your network
administrator to be sure.
Should you want to access this page from another machine on the
network, you will need to know it's IP. For that see the Wiki How
article at http://www.wikihow.com/Find-the-IP-Address-of-Your-PC
or watch the video below:
- The screenshots above are running on an iPhone 3G with OS
3.1.2 with the AttendView Web-Based Client being launched via a
homescree icon. Doing this allows for the web page to occupies
the entire screen and present a more unified interface. If you
choose to access the page through Safari then you would see the same
image as above but with the navigation bar at the bottom and the
standard blue top bar.
Even though these images our on an iPhone, many other smartphones have
webkit based browsers. The page should look the same on all
webkit browsers. Blackberry and Windows Mobile phones may display
the page slightly different and functionality has not been tested.
- If your running your own web server such as IIS or Apache
for windows you'll want to place the unzipped files to a subdirectory
under the root folder. You'll want to let users know that
subdirectory so that they can navigate to the AttendView
Web-Client. You'll also want to make them aware if your running
the server on anything other than 80 as the user will need to enter
that after the IP.
- The clock data will autoreload every few seconds. The
frequency of reloading depends on how often the data changes on the
server and may fluctuate. Should you want to stop reloading the
data click the "Stop reloading data!" link at the bottom of the clock.
- Employees with lines under their name indicate a
message. Move your mouse cursor over the name and within a few
seconds the message will popup.
Known Issues (to be fixed for next release)
- When employees on an outside job shows, the word "Outside Job" shows up twice.
- Leaving a message causes clock data to be off for the remained of the week. Leaving a message adds hours to the employees
