You may be able to create time punches via the web app to record your work times and breaks. You may be able to record the time you work against an activity.
To punch in:
You may be prompted for additional information. If your administrator does not require any additional information, and you do not record time against activities, projects, or tasks, you are now punched in.
If you record time against activities or projects, an bubble displays.
You can't select a billing rate when adding a punch for project or task work via the web app. If multiple billing rates are available for the project selected, the first one alphabetically will be assigned by default.
Your time will be recorded against the activity, project, or task you chose.
If rounding rules are in use, your punch may be automatically rounded to the nearest interval and the rounded time will be displayed. (Your supervisor will have a record of the original, unrounded punch time.)
If you need to change the project, task, or activity you’re working on during the day:
You will remain logged in, but your time will now be recorded against the new project, task, or activity. An Out time will be automatically added to the In punch you created for the previous activity.
You may have a Break button on your Clock In or Out page. If this is the case, your administrator has defined one or more types of breaks you can take, and you’ll need to punch to record your break times.
To record a break:
A Break Type bubble displays.
A break end time will be added to the Break punch you created.
Even if you don’t have the Break button available, it is possible you still need to punch out and then in for unpaid breaks. Ask your supervisor if you’re not sure if or how you should record breaks.
Typically, you should only need to punch out at the end of your shift, since breaks and changes in type of activity are recorded using the Break and Transfer buttons, respectively.
To punch out:
Talk to your supervisor. They may prefer you punch in late, and then they will correct the time of that punch. Or, they may prefer you to skip the punch altogether. Either way, it’s important that you report your missed or late punch to your supervisor as soon as possible, or correct it yourself if you are able to.
You may be able to edit your own punches, depending on the permissions you’ve been assigned. You may have permission to edit the fields associated with the punch, such as the activity or break type. Or, you may have permission to edit all of the punch data, including the punch times. Employee edit of punch times is rarely allowed.
No, you don’t need to punch in before you punch out. If you realize you missed punching in at the end of your shift, you can punch out as normal and report the missing In punch to your supervisor.
Your start and end times will be recorded exactly when you create In and Out punches. Typically, you will not be paid for any time when you are punched in before your start time. However, if you are recorded as Out during your work time, your pay will likely reflect the time you were recorded as being away.
If your punch record is inaccurate, talk to your supervisor. They may be able to correct your punch history for you. Or correct errors yourself, if you are able to.
Typically, no. In most cases your hours are automatically sent to your supervisor.
However, if your timesheet isn’t automatically submitted on its due date, you likely have to submit your timesheet manually. Talk to your supervisor if you have questions about this.
Depending on your timesheet settings, if a punch is added to a timesheet after it is submitted, it may be reopened. This could cause you to receive an overdue notice and require you to resubmit the timesheet.
If a blue triangle appears in the top, right-hand corner of a punch cell in your Today's Time Punches table, it means that punch was edited after the fact (that is, it wasn’t recorded via a real-time punch).
If your punch buttons are disabled, your timesheet for today has likely already been submitted or approved. You are prevented from adding punches for submitted timesheets to ensure punch data and timesheet pay data stay in sync. To add a punch, you’ll have to ask your supervisor to reopen your timesheet or, if you are able to, you can reopen it yourself.
