Once you are certain that the timecard is correct, you may press the button at the top right to lock it.
The approval is 100% optional and will not hold back payroll processing. You will not be able to approve the “Current Period” by default, only the previous period.
Once the period has ended and your employees have finished their work, you may approve. Once approved, no changes can be made to the timecard, however, you can click the Unapprove button to unlock the timecard at any time.
The textual indicators at the top of the timecard will indicate as to whether the timecard is approved or not. A time stamp will indicate the date/time of the approval.
Not Submitted indicates that the employee has not yet submitted their own timecard via their own login to “digitally sign” their timecard. This is optional.
To approve all timecards, from the Timecard menu, there is a global approvals area.
The Approvals area allows you to approve, or unapprove many timecards at once. You may place a checkmark in multiple employees at once and save from the top right corner.
Use the filters at the top to change departments, employee types, or to unapprove all timecards for example.
