The Deadline for Time Entry and Approvals is now 4:00 pm for both Biweekly Time Entry and Monthly Exception Time. Additionally, Monthly Exception Time is due on the 12th of each month, unless otherwise indicated in the Schedule.
Time Entry Best Practices:
- Timekeepers should complete time entry and submit for approval before 3:00 pm to allow Time Approvers to complete their task prior to the 4:00 pm deadline.
- Please ensure your employees who have either the Timekeeper or Time Approver BAR roles have a trained and experienced backup who can provide support in the event the primary is not available.
- Payroll and Employment Areas need time to properly assist departments with diagnosing issues before the end of the day to avoid missing the deadline.
- The Deadline time change from 5:00 pm to 4:00 pm and the Exception Time Deadline date change will commence with the 2018 2R1 and 5R1 deadlines.
In the event the Approver has questions or needs to Return a Timesheet for Correction, this allows the Timekeeper more time to correct and resubmit, and the Time Approver more time to check each timesheet for accuracy. This practice will help reduce adjustments.
