We at Team 900 got tired of trying to keep track of student hours on paper so we built a program to do so. Students sign in at the beginning of meetings with a barcode scanner and out at the end of the meeting.
It has adjustable variables for requirements (# hours/#meetings attended) as well as many others (see the documentation for more). We’ve also set it up to provide graphs and statistics for when schools or sponsors ask.
You can find the code here: https://github.com/FRC900/timesheet. I did my best to document the install process, but I installed it all over a year ago. Please let me know if you have questions or any suggestions/improvements to the documentation.
There is also an example website set up here: http://frctimesheet.herokuapp.com/.

Feel free to play around and create items, please just don’t delete or edit these two users.
Our current setup is a Raspberry Pi hooked up to a monitor and a barcode scanner. It’s been working great for us.
I’m still continually adding features, so if you have any requests please don’t hesitate to ask. I have released it under a Creative Commons License so you can also fork the code if you want to develop on your own. I just ask that you leave the original credits to Team 900.
Hopefully it helps some of you!
