(for part-time hourly employees)
Click on Employee.
Select Time Entry.
Select which week you are entering time for within the pay period. Please pay special attention to the dates.
If you have multiple positions, it is important to enter time separately for each position as the time sheet is routed to the appropriate supervisor and the time entered is charged to that department’s budget. You will see both positions in the Pay Period week.
You will need to enter Time In and Time Out for each day worked. For Time In and Time Out entry, you have two options. You may select your In and Out times from the pre-populated times in the drop-down list. Click in any box to use the drop-down list. You may also type your In and Out times if they are not available on the drop-down list. Please include AM or PM with your time (i.e. 8:23 AM, 12:47 PM, 3:15 PM). You are required by law to report actual time worked.
Your supervisor may review your time entry at any point during the pay period. Please enter your Time In as soon as you arrive and Time Out at the end of each day, prior to leaving the office or work area.
Remember to enter your Time In and Time Out for unpaid meal breaks. When you are scheduled to work 7.5 continuous hours or more, you must take a 30-minute, unpaid meal break. The 30-minute, unpaid meal break must be taken no later than 5 hours after beginning work.
Click the + to add additional time or the – to delete time if needed. See image below.
If you did not work, please leave the field blank for the corresponding date.
The system will typically save your work as you enter it. However, if needed, you can save your electronic timecard by clicking the Save button. Repeat each step to enter time daily until your time for the pay period is complete.
When you are ready to submit your weekly timecard to your supervisor for time approval, please select the Submit for Approval button. When you click the Submit for Approval option, this becomes your electronic signature acknowledging your submitted time is accurate and ready for supervisor approval.
An email will automatically be sent to your supervisor indicating that your time is ready to be reviewed and approved. Once you have submitted your time for approval, it can be modified only by your supervisor or the Payroll Department.
It is you and your supervisor’s responsibility to ensure time entry is reported accurately according to the law and that the timesheet is signed and approved by the due date established by the Payroll Office. Manual checks will not be issued for late timesheets.
To enter time for a different week, you can select the week from the list, or you can use the arrow buttons to move between the pay period weeks. Each week’s time must be submitted and approved separately.
If you notice an error in your submitted time AND your supervisor has NOT approved your time yet, you can click the Return Timecard to Edit option to modify your time.
Once you click that, you may change or add any missed time. Your timecard will need to be submitted for approval again. Please click on the Submit for Approval button again for any week that you modified or added time to.
Once you submit your time to your supervisor for the pay period, you will receive an email confirmation stating your time sheet has been approved. Please be sure that you submit time for both weeks, if applicable. You will receive an email for each week’s submission. See the example below.
