    To view instructions for Payable Time see "Viewing Payable Time - Payable Time Details" or "Viewing Payable Time - Payable Time Summary."   Step 22
  23. Important!

    •Every employee should have an initial IN punch when the day's work is started.

    •When the employee takes a lunch (or meal) break, his time record will reflect a MEAL OUT and subsequent IN punch.

    •An OUT punch is required at the end of each workday.

    There is no automatic [lunch] deduction, so ensure that the employee has correctly recorded his meal break.    Step 23
  24. The clock, exception time icon, indicates that there is an exception on an employee's timesheet.

    This must be resolved to ensure that the record reflects the correct activity for the time period - before you approve the employee's timesheet activity.

    For detailed instructions regarding exception time refer to "Manage Exceptions."    Step 24
  25. If an employee has worked more than 5.5 hours without a break, you will be alerted by the exception time icon.

    This will allow you to determine if an employee has worked through lunch (working through lunch: only IN/OUT punches needed) or if meal punches were missed.

    To see exceptions for all employees refer to "Manage Exceptions."    Step 25
  26. Click the Exception button.   Step 26
  27. Exception Information: Certain exceptions are not allowable and will prevent time from being passed through to Payroll. The disallowable exceptions are noted with a HIGH severity level; you must correct these in order for the Payable Time to generate for that day or time span. You must return to the employee's timesheet and correct the row/data that generated the error.

    Other exceptions are allowable; they are "warnings" to prompt you that a condition exists in case you need to correct the timesheet. The allowable exceptions are noted with a MEDIUM severity level. You can approve the exception by clicking Allow next to the exception row and Save.
       Step 27
  28. Check the box on the appropriate exception row.   Step 28
  29. Click the Save button.

    Note: If you edit a timesheet to correct the data that generated an exception, you must wait for the Time Administration process to run to see the changes reflected in Payable Time. The Time Administration process is scheduled to run every 15 minutes.    Step 29

    On the empty row, select the desired form of payable time from the Time Reporting Code list item.   Step 40
  41. Enter the desired number of hours in the Quantity field.   Step 41
  42. Deleting Rows: Rows can be deleted if necessary. (For example, you may have realized that you added vacation time to the wrong employee.)

    To delete a row, first scroll to the right.   Step 42
  43. Click the Delete button.   Step 43
  44. A delete confirmation page will display. Click the appropriate Delete button.   Step 44
  45. Missed Punches: The exception icon indicates a missed punch. You must correct these in order for the Payable Time to generate for that day or time span.

    On the timesheet, click in the field that you need to edit and add the missing punch.    Step 45
  46. The missing punch has been entered.    Step 46

    Click the Reported Hours Summary - click to hide link.   Step 49
  50. Balances: Click the Balances - click to view link.   Step 50
  51. The employee's available balances display. Note the balances reflect any leave hours that were submitted on the employee's timesheet, even if that payroll has not been processed yet.

    Click the Balances - click to hide link.   Step 51
