How to Edit Time Cards After the Time Card Upgrade

In an upcoming upgrade to My Time Card and Time Card Details, there will be some minor adjustments to the process when editing your time cards. While the steps are similar, there are some key differences during the process.

For more information about the time card upgrade, you can refer to the following article.

Checking Which Time Card Version You Have

If the stop time for your time records is slightly grayed out and some time records have a "Clock Out" icon like the example below, then you are viewing the updated time card view. If it does not look like the below example, then you are still using the prior time card version and should refer to the following article.

Best Practices

The best practice is to make all your edits (adding, editing, and/or deleting time records) for the employee's time card in one batch before saving. As the policies will be applied to the time card after saving (e.g. calculating hours), saving after every minor edit will result in multiple policies applying and take longer for the fully calculated time card to present.

Adding a Time Record

  • Specify the date range you will be adding time for.

  • Click Add Time...
    1. at the top of the time card to select a specific date for the selected date range.
    2. next to the date to add more time for a specific date.

  • Select the location and cost code to be used and enter the start time.
    • The stop time for a time record will automatically use the start time of the succeeding time record as an implied stop time. If there is no succeeding time record, the stop time will have a Overview__Time_Card_Detail__115002665908__Incomplete.png symbol until a succeeding time record is created or if the "Clock Out" checkbox is enabled.
    • The "Clock Out" checkbox should only be used if the employee would no longer be tracking their time, such as for a break or the end of their day.
    • If you are adding multiple time records for an employee, you can create additional records with only start times, then use the "Clock Out" checkbox when the employee would be taking a break or is done for the day to enter a stop time.
    • A comment can also be added as a reminder as to why the time was manually added.
    • If you are entering a time record because an employee forgot to clock in, you can simply enter a location, cost code, and start time. If the employee is still working that day, they should be able to clock themselves in/out as normal
    • When adding a time record, you can use the TAB key to go to different fields. If you have highlighted the "Clock Out" checkbox, you can press SPACE to enable it.
