Kimai maintainer since 2007
This is a early-access software, certain features are not yet here, but already planned (see Roadmap below). Feedback will be incorporated.
These features will be added in the future, but there is no guarantee when or in which order (numbers in front are priorities).
- Documentation - (1) Written - (2) Videos - Approval workflow - (1) Allow to "Sent for approval" to Supervisor - (1) Allow to "Reject" or "Approve" by Supervisor - (1) Only calculate approved or locked absences (new ones are for planning) - (3) Allow to export (or print) pending approvals - Absence calendar - (2) Display all users / teams - (2) Allow export as ical (or similar format) for use in external calendars (e.g. Outlook) - Monthly contract PDF - (2) Include: total working time sum - (2) Include: total holiday sum - (3) Include: holidays at start of month sum - (3) Include: start of month working-time sum
The next list is a collection of feature wishes from users, which might or might not be added. If you need one of these features, do not rely on them being added, but contact me upfront to discuss your needs. If the above list is empty or I decide to add a feature, it will be moved to the “Planned features” section.

You might have to set file permissions afterwards:
You have to allow PHP (your webserver process) to write to

Here is an example for Debian/Ubuntu (to be executed inside the Kimai directory):
Test Kimai before executing these commands (they are likely not required in a shared-hosting environment).
You probably need to prefix them with
the group might be called different than
Run the following command:
This will create the required database tables and update them to the latest version.
