How to use our free Employee Attendance Tracker

An Excel-based Employee Attendance Tracker needs to be light and easy to use. As a result, we avoid adding unnecessary information and deliver a neat solution that saves you time and energy. Check out the following steps to configure your Employee Attendance Tracker and start using it. 

  1. Download the free Employee Attendance Tracker and rename it to match your organization's standards. 
  2. Go to the Employees worksheet and define your list of employees. 
  3. Go to the January worksheet and select an employee for each row. If you don't have enough rows in the template, simply copy the last row as often as you need and select the employee's name.
  4. In the 2024 Totals, the sheet will automatically update the rows corresponding to the first ten employees. If your company has additional employees, copy the last row as many times as you need. 
  5. In the worksheets corresponding to the rest of the months, the Excel spreadsheet automatically updates the first ten employees' names. However, if you need more than ten employees, you have to copy the last row as many times as you need.

That's it! You're ready to manage working days, vacations, and special leaves for all employees.

Tip: If you work with different PTO policies, you have to change the attendance codes (W, P, A, V, H, S) and update the formulas for monthly and yearly totals.
