OutBoard is free web-based open-source time tracking and availability software.
Outboard was created by Auburn University information technology specialist Richard F. Feuerriegel. The first known release of the software is version 1.2.0, released November 13, 2000. It's not clear if it was an open-source release or not. After version 1.3 and 1.4 was created, an open-source SourceForge project was started for the software on March 12, 2003. However, almost two years passed before the first open-source release (2.0.0) arrived on SourceForge, adding time clock and time tracking features. After 2009, updates were sporadic, presumably due to the software functionality being in a mostly finished state. The latest version is 2.2.6, released in April 2012 to address compatibility with MySQL 5.1+.
The main features of OutBoard include:
- dot positions
- change logging
- reporting and timesheet generation
- configurable display
- comments support
- idle time outs
- multi-user support
- administrative functions
- password authentication
Installation requirements for OutBoard include:
- Apache 1.3.x or 2.x
- PHP 5.x Apache module
- MySQL 5.x
