@Akashdeep ,

You cannot - nothing runs when the app is closed. You may be able to do something in Power Automate if you want to action something at a set period.

Hi @Akashdeep,

 

I can provide suggestion for that but not sure that can help

 

Create a table/SharePoint List to Maintain Time Start and Employee.

When User Start the attendance we can store the value in the SharePoint List/Table with the Current Time & Logged in User.

Then when we reopen the app get the stored time from the List/table and you can start your calculation according to that.

Once all your work done remove the record form the List/Table.
