As a reminder, there will be several communications published in the MacDaily regarding the Holiday Timesheet Deadline.

Quick 5 Timesheet Tips:

  1. When approving timesheet(s) after the payroll period ends make sure the date range reflects the Last Period.
  2. Fractions of hours must be rounded to the nearest 15 minutes and entered as a Fraction of the hour – for example 5.75 – 5hours 45 minutes
  3. Any time segments flagged with a Red X indicates hours apply to a different department and can only be approved by the supervisor of that department.
  4. If your employee has more than one job with a different department, you will receive the following error message: 9000009999 – Timeclock Test [XX/XX/XXXX XX:XX AM/PM].  One or more approvals could not be changed due to job code access.  Only the supervisor who manages that job can approve the time segment.
  5. Column M will populate a checkmark in the box when the time segment was successfully approved by the Manager (you and/or a different department)
