If you are the administrator of your board, you can access the online training. It will show you how to change the settings of the board, how to add group, add new user. It will tell you how to get the visitor viewer link without sign in.

It is only How-to for Administrator.  It is a guide for you.

Remove the visitor view link from homepage

It is for privacy issue. We agreed that your name and email are privacy information too. We are not showing it on the site. But, if you don’t want to sign in, and still can see the status of every users, Administrator can get the visitor view link from the board setting page.

Remove visitor view link from public

As we noticed that privacy is one of the most important issue on Internet.

We are also get some feedback of our client. They don’t want to show the name and link on our In Out Board system. Even being cached by Google or any other Search Engine.

I totally agree with you.

So we removed visitor view link from the home page of this site.

Our clients can still use the visitor view without login. The URL of your board can be found in your board settings under Admin panel. Turn on visitor view first. Then copy the link and bookmark it. Then you can use it.

FIOB August Newsletter


From today, we put every modification or improvement records here, monthly newsletter.

Not only that, it is a good way to communicate with our users. If you like it, I like it.

Attendance Reports: Fixed

We fixed date pickup box problem. Previously, if no date was chosen and click submit, there were system errors. Now we even add ajax validation features.

Home Page: Modification

Reduced the number of clients, show 10 clients only. Not the latest one, but the most active one.

Board Settings: Updated

So, if the client want to have the visitor view, he need the link of the view only page. The link is shown at the board settings, under admin. The link only works when the visitor view allowed.

Sign in out: Improvement

To save the clicks, we made a small improvement on the sign in out page.

When the current status of user is In, by clicking his name, the default check is applied on Out.

When the current status of user is Out, Vacation or others, by clicking his name, the default check is applied on In.


This is the first news letter. I am not sure which format is easy to read. I do not know what kind of content our users want to know. If you have any ideas or suggestions, just comment below.

Ajax Tab implement

Right now, we improved the most often used page, index page of Free In Out Board. Every time user log in and see this page.

Now, group tab is ajax supported.

It has two pros.

Ajax tab feature of Free In Out Board

1) Make index page smaller, it means web page load faster.

2) Click tab, trig the ajax content, the user status table loaded dynamically, the user status are real time.
