Description of my final project

Project Name: HrQueue

This project serves as a custom HR software allowing customers to submit cases/requests, providing historical data for administrators in the goal of employing accurate HR departmental help to serve customers. HRQueue project was taken from the CivTechSA list. This program will allow San Antonio employees to sign in when visiting the City of San Antonio Human Resources Department. Customers can fill out required forms (i.e. name, department, reason for visit) as well as add information that HR employee can take into account. An HR Employee can login to view the customer queue, assign cases/requests to themselves, and mark these requests/cases as complete. Finally, an HR Admin can perform all of the HR Employee roles as well as create HR Employee accounts and pull historical reports. The HRQueue web application was built using HTML, CSS, Javascript, Java, MySQL, Spring Boot and Thymeleaf.
