Quarantined Time in ExakTime Connect

Quarantined time are time punches that are not accepted to an employee's time card due to a time card approval and/or a closed pay period. After all time card approvals have been removed and the pay period has been reopened, the quarantined time will be accepted to the employee's time card. 

If you are utilizing either pay period closing or time card approvals, it can help to review the Quarantined Time tab before finalizing payroll.
