Editing Your Time Cards

The best practice is to make all your edits (adding, editing, and/or deleting time records) in one batch before saving. As the policies will be applied to the time card after saving, saving after every minor edit will result in multiple policies applying and take longer for the fully calculated time card to present.

  • Specify the date range you will be adding time for.


  • Click the employee that will be receiving time from the employee list to the left.


  • Click Add Time...

    2. next to the date to add more time for a specific date.


  • Select the location and cost code to be used and enter the start and stop times. If needed, a comment can be added as a reminder as to why the time was manually added.
