Why can’t I add a timecard for an employee?

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Sometimes there is a need to add a manual timecard for an employee however there name doesn’t show in the list to select.

If the employee is marked as ‘NOT scheduled and can check in/out at any time’ then the only department they will show in is their primary department. The reason for this is based on their punching in/out. Since they aren’t scheduled, we don’t know the department they are clocking in for, so it always defaults to the primary department. Therefor, this is carried over to the timecard module as well.

If you do need to add timecards for other departments, change their profile to one of the other ones and you can then pick their department.

What to do with NO SHOWS?

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Previously when an employee didn’t show up, their name remained in the timecard list as unapproved, with no way of reporting on this.

Now, you can mark those timecards as NO SHOWS:

You now see the link ‘Mark this as a did not show absence’. Once you’ve done this, you can go to the REPORTS and select this absence type from the drop list.

Now you can ensure all your timecards are approved, and those that can’t, are properly handled.
