Want to build hour adding and tracking app

Need to build an apprentice hour tracking web app. I have data of apprentices and employers. Need web app where the employer can select the apprentice and add completed hours in various areas of expertise. 

 

Do I do this with multiple SharePoint lists (1 employer, 1 apprentice, 1 hours)? Or something else?

Thanks for any help you have!

Re: Want to build hour adding and tracking app

This could be done with 3 lists, one for Employees, one for Employee - Apprentice Relationship, and one for hours

 

Employee List will have information about your employees

Employee - Apprentice Relationship will have two columns, one for Mentor, and one for Apprentice

Hours will have something like Employee, hours, date.

 

Then your app will have conditions where it checks to see which employer is using the app, the drop down will be for the Employee - Apprentice Relationship list and using the Filter function you can have it only show the apprentices they are in charge of. it would look something like this:

 

Filter('Employee Apprentice Relationship', Mentor  = User().email)

 

Note that the above formula will only work if you store the Employers email in your list.

Re: Want to build hour adding and tracking app

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Can you explain more about "select the apprentice and add completed hours in various areas of expertise"? Your scenario is not quite clear to me. Did you mean that each employer will select one/multiple apprentices and add completed hours for each apprentices?

 

If this is the situation, you could use one SharePoint list and have 3 columns in this list maybe. One for employer name, one for apprentice, one for hours of each item.

Re: Want to build hour adding and tracking app

But how do I avoid having the person put in duplicate employees/apprentices?

 

I want them to select the apprentice from a dropdown and then add hours for a specific date.

 

Then be able to do this every day.

 

It is frustrating because I know how to do this in Access.

Re: Want to build hour adding and tracking app

Ok. Thanks! I will have to look into more on how to do this. It sounds like it is similar to Access then.
