This project is built using Laravel 10, Vue 3, and Inertia.JS.


  • PHP 8.2
  • Composer
  • PostgreSQL Server (not tested on MySQL)
  • Cron (for scheduled tasks)
  • npm

 git clone
 cd hr-management-system
 composer install
 cp .env.example .env 

Then open .env file and fill in your database and SMTP credentials (for automatic Emails). Also, set QUEUE_CONNECTION=database for queues.

After that:

 php artisan key:generate

To generate basic data needed to start the system, we need to run the migrations and starter seeder:

 php artisan migrate --seeder=StarterSeeder

Alternatively, if you want to populate the application with dummy data so that you can test all functionality, you can run the following command:

 php artisan migrate --seeder=DatabaseSeeder

After that, Add this entry in your cron file:

* * * * * cd /path-to-your-project && php artisan schedule:run >> /dev/null 2>&1

If you don’t know how to add a cron job, please consult this post: Setting Up a Cron Job for more information.

You also need to run these commands for task scheduling and queues:

 php artisan queue:work

For Vue Dependencies:

 npm install
 npm run build

The project should be ready to go now. Your next steps will be to set up a web server such as Apache or Nginx. Alternatively, you can use instead php artisan serve and head to localhost:8000 to view the project.

If you are going to host the project on a server, further steps are required. Please consult the Laravel Documentation for more information.

System Behaviour

  • The system is designed for employees to take their attendances by themselves, but the admin can overwrite their entries and take the attendance manually.
  • If there is no attendance entry for an employee before midnight, the system will automatically mark them as absent.
  • The system calculates the employee’s work hours based on their shift’s start & end time.
  • If a shift that has employees assigned to it is deleted, the system will automatically assign them automatically to another shift.
  • The system marks employees as late if they have signed in their attendance after their shift’s start time by 15 minutes. There are no penalties applied for being late, but it will appear in the payroll’s report.
  • If an employee gets deleted, the system will automatically delete all their data, including their attendance, leaves, and payroll, but the personal details of the employee will be archived.


  • After you log in for the first time, head to the globals page and fill in your organization’s data and settings. This data is integral into the system’s functionality.
  • You might need to have a look at validation rules for national ids. The current rule is generic as countries have very different systems. You can change it inside app/Services/ValidationServices.php at validateEmployeeCreationDetails and validateEmployeeUpdateDetails.
  • When you create a new employee, the default password is SoftKittyWarmKittyLittleBallOfFurr.
  • To add more languages, run this command in the app root directory: php artisan langscanner YOUR_LANG (Courtesy of druc’s laravel-langscanner). For example, to add Deutsch, run php artisan langscanner de. This will generate a JSON file in root/lang/de.json with all the app strings. After you translate the file, add an entry in the language selector for your new language.

Release Notes

  • IP-based System Currently supports IPv4, and the option can be disabled.
  • IP-based System assumes your organization has a static IP(s). If you have a dynamic IP(s), you’ll need to update the IP(s) in the database every time it changes.
  • The system extracts personal information such as gender and age from the national ID, and the current supported ID is for Egyptian IDs. You need to implement your own ID parser to support your country or remove the method altogether. The method is located in resources/js/Composables/useExtractPersonalDetails.js.
  • normalized_name is a column in the database that is used to improve search experience for Arabic names and other languages that uses Arabic alphabets. it’s only used for Arabic names but does not affect other languages, and you can utilize it in your own language. If you are using a different language, and it’s bothering you, you can follow these steps to remove it:
    1. in app/Services/EmployeeServices.php, replace line ->where('normalized_name', 'ILIKE', '%' . $term . '%') with ->where('name', 'ILIKE', '%' . $term . '%') in renderIndexPage and renderFindPage. repeat the same for Departments and Branches renderShowPage methods.
    1. in app/Models/Employee, remove the entire public static function boot() since it’s only used for normalization.
    1. in employees migration table, remove the normalized_name column, then run the migrations again. NOTE: this will delete all employees’ data, it’s better to do this before you start adding employees.


  • Better Mobile Responsiveness.

  • Option to Print System Data.
