What to Expect

After creating a single entry or multiple time card entries, all the time entered will appear in time cards. Once entries exist, you will now have the option to “edit” with the edit pencil. Administrators always have editing privileges. Managers and employees can be toggled as read-only or granted editing privileges. 

When adjusting a timesheet, you will always have a pop-up window allowing you to modify times for that day. A list with times will be presented, but you can also manually type any time into the boxes. 

Adjustments made to time cards can be seen by reviewing your audit log. To access this, check the audit log box or download the audit log report under "More." If you’re a mobile app user, visit the website to view any audits or download audit reports.
