If you use When I Work Time Clock & Attendance to track employee time, you can review pay periods and timesheets to monitor employees’ hours and make any needed adjustments.
If you notice a discrepancy in a timesheet, you can edit the timesheet to make corrections.
Reviewing an employee’s timesheet
Hover over Attendance, then select Timesheets.
- In the Pay Periods list, select the pay period that you want to view. The icons in front of the pay periods indicate their status:
- Open circle indicates the pay period is open; supervisors, managers, and the account holder can make changes. Employees can make changes if allowed by the Attendance Settings.
- Check circle indicates the pay period is closed; no further changes can be made unless the pay period is re-opened by the account holder or a manager with access to manage timesheets and pay periods.
- Click the employee’s name under Timesheets on the left. The employee’s timesheet appears.
- The box at the top shows a summary of the employee’s hours for the pay period.
