Frequently Asked Questions
Web Time Sheet is here! This new web-based time reporting and approval process will be introduced to all University departments. Each department will receive hands-on training prior to implementation. Payroll staff will be available to answer questions and assist with any problems. The web time sheet is accessible by login into the University Information System (UIS).
How will Supervisors or Approvers know when to approve time sheets?
Approvers will follow the current bi-weekly pay schedule. Time sheets can be approved as soon as they have been submitted by the employee. However, all time sheets must be approved on or before the end of the pay period (Saturday). Since the time sheet is being entered directly on-line Approvers have more time to electronically forward time sheet to Payroll. They can monitor attendance and view their department work hours on-line.
What if my Approver is on vacation?
All Approvers are required to set up a Proxy who is authorized to approve time in the absence of the Approver. Approvers must notify their Proxy when they need to approve time. If the Proxy is not available, Approver must contact Payroll to approve time or submit paper time-sheet.
What if my Approver resigns or I transfer departments?
Any change in Approver status should be communicated to the Payroll Office.
Payroll can overwrite the Approval process or assign a new approver.
What if I have more than one supervisor?
If you have two supervisors, one supervisor will be designated as Primary Approver and the other supervisor as FYI (For Your Information only). Records are routed to the FYI supervisor for viewing only. No approval is required by the FYI, since the Primary Approver or Proxy will approve all time reported.
What do the new time sheets look like?
The format of the web time sheet looks different, but contains all the earning codes and employee information needed. Additional information not currently found on the paper time sheet is also included to allow for more accurate time keeping.
Will all earning codes be listed?
All of the common earn codes applicable to non-exempt employees will be listed on the time sheet. If you need to report time for a code not listed, contact your Payroll Office.
How many past time sheets can I view as an employee?
At this time, we are only providing access to 3 months of time sheets. If requested, Payroll will provide you with previous months or years time sheets. There is no need to print or store paper time sheets.
Am I required to enter hours each day?
Yes, it is strongly recommended that employees record all hours on a daily basis. By doing so, you will build a habit of entering time and supervisors can review attendance records daily.
What if I need to make a change to the time sheet?
Employees can make changes until the time sheet is submitted to the Approver. If you have already submitted your timesheet, your Approver can either make the change for you or send it back to you for correction. If the Approver has already approved the incorrect timesheet, contact the Payroll Office.
What if I submit my time sheet to my Approver on Friday and then work on Saturday?
Communicate with your Approver. If the Approver has not yet approved your time sheet, the Approver can make the change for you or send it back to you for correction. If it is past the pay period and too late for payroll to adjust, you can include the hours on the next timesheet with a comment to explain additional hours.
What if employee is out sick when time sheets are due?
Contact your Approver and the Payroll Office. Time sheets can be approved by Payroll with authorization from the Approver.
What if an employee is gone an entire payroll period?
Either contact Payroll to move the time sheet to the Approver, or complete a paper time sheet when you return.
Can I submit my time-sheet at the beginning of the pay period?
Yes, you may submit your time before the end of the pay period if you will be out of the office when time sheets are due. Notify your supervisor if you are submitting your time in advance.
How do I train new employees?
Web Time Sheet is very simple to use and training can be done from any web enabled computer. We encourage all departments to train new employees as part of their department procedure; however, if necessary you may contact the Payroll Office for training.
