Time Card Approvals Feature

Have employees submit their time card for approval.
Our Time Card Approvals feature requires your employees to submit their time card at the end of each pay period. Time cards can be approved, or rejected back with comments by either their Manger or Administrator. This is an optional feature that can be toggled on or off.

When a pay period is about to close or has closed, an employee can submit their time for review.
They can add in notes for their Manager or Administrator to review.


If you as an admin or manager are approving or rejecting a time card you can add in comments back to your managers or employees that they will see.

If their time was rejected they will then have a chance to review and resubmit their time back to you.


Lock Time Cards for Payroll

To ensure there are no surprise, last-minute edits, approved time cards are locked. Only by rejecting the time card can any edits be made. This provides tighter control over time card entries as you near payday. If you ever need to check if any adjustments were made to the time card, you can view the revision history that shows what adjustments were made and when.

Guarantee Labor Compliance

Are your employees required to receive a 60 minute break if they have worked longer than 7 hours? Does your state require any time worked beyond 8 hours in a day to be paid as overtime? With time card approvals you can go over each employee’s time card for accuracy and labor or policy compliance and add notes if a time card requires further review. Time card approvals help you make sure everything is recorded right every time.


Why use time card approvals?

Getting ready for payroll can be a daunting task, but with time card approvals you can ensure that time cards are accurate every pay period. Time card approvals give you a look into each employee’s work week and allows you to verify that each employee’s hours are allocated to the correct job and task. After you have taken the time to review your employee’s hours just click “Approve” to lock the time card. Now you are ready to process payroll with the confidence that your employees time cards are accurate.
