Time Card Search and Filter Section

This section is the same for both of the “Not So Adventurous” and the “ Adventurous” Time card pages.

 Search and Filter 


In the Search and Filter section you have different filters that can be used independently or in any combination.

  1. Pay Period: This filter you can choose pay periods for 1 year going forward or backwards. To show more than one year’s worth of pay periods going backwards you scroll to the earliest pay period and choose Show Earlier Pay Periods.
  2. Dates: In this line you can choose the beginning date of a Pay Period and in the thru you choose the end date of a Pay Period. It will then expand out and show all the Pay Periods in the Range selected.
  3. Custom: In this line you can choose specific dates other than Pay Period dates. Note: If the dates do not coincide with your standard pay period dates your overtime calculations may differ from the standard pay periods.
  4. Sort By: Choices are Name, Date or Date, Name.
    1. Name, Date: This option is the standard view for the time cards; it groups the time cards by the employee and then the dates that they worked.

The Archive button

The Archive button will only show for an administrator. Only the administrator can archive or un-archive pay periods.

Archiving is used to create a permanent historical record of a pay period that cannot be edited. When you Archive a pay period our system it moves that pay period to a separate Database. It will then put "(archived)" after it. It will also leave the empty pay period in the listing, so you will have 2 instances of the pay period in your listing.

More information on Archiving can be found at this link:
