Low-Code Timesheet Application
This low-code application simulates a basic timesheet
in which users can clock in and out to log their work hours.
Hours can be logged the following ways:
Clicking the "Clock In" icon at the top of the timesheet grid to clock in
or add a new timesheet entry with the current time as the default.
Clicking the "Clock Out" icon next to the Clock Out time entry
Editing the date and time entry text boxes directly and then clicking the
"Update Timesheet" icon on the left side of that grid entry.
Users can also edit the span of dates to see hours worked in previous weeks.
A visual representation of the timesheet functionality is shown below.
Additionally, all icons will display a nifty tooltip when hovered over.
In this application, there are hourly employees, salaried employees, and
Upon logging in as an hourly employee, the employee timesheet screen
will appear. Using this screen, the employee can log their work hours
and view how many hours they've worked, along with a calculated estimate
of the gross paycheck earned from those work hours.
Salaried employees can also log their hours, but because they are
on salary, these hours will not affect their gross paycheck.
Logging in as an administrator will feature a more administrative experience.
The first screen will feature a grid of employees within the company.
To select an employee, simply click the icon on the left side of the grid.
The second screen is very similar to the employee timesheets, with the exception
of the administrator's name in the top right corner. The administrator can log hours
for each employee, as well as view the hours worked and estimated paychecks.
In some routines, you can find steps labeled as "Calculate Hours".
This is custom code!
Custom Node.js code can be
Added as a step in a routine directly OR
Created by converting an existing step to code by clicking the
Node.js logo on the step's header.
This specific custom code was created using the second method and then altered to tally up
the selected employee's hours.

In this sample application, a drop-down list of user emails is
provided on the login screen using the database-driven widgets.
Simply type in a letter and a select an existing employee

The widgets in Profound.js Spaces can be populated directly with
database information through simple configuration. Simply fill out
