Editing Time In/Out or Adding Notes to Time Events



You can view and edit an employee's time through the employee's time/edit report.


Using the left pane Main Menu, click on: Administration » Payroll » Time Edit


Note: Pay Type Override and Pay Override sections (shown) require optional IPSOTO module.

     

  1. Run the Time Report for the employee whose time you need to adjust.
  2.  

     

  3. Click on the Time In or Time Out link needs to be edited or corrected.
  4.  

     

  5. Adjust the Time In and/or Time Out by typing over the date and time or by using the calendar that pops up automatically when you click in the date/time field. You may also select a job, enter notes, and edit custom remote clocking field values, if available.

     


    TIP: Enter an explanation of the edit in the Change Note section for auditing purposes.

    NOTE: The "Last Audit Note" field contains the last Change Note that was added to the pair of events being viewed.

    WARNING: If there are any current or past pending payrolls, the time edit may invalidate the payroll run and require you to enter an explanation for invalidating the payroll. This security feature ensures that you are aware and agree to adjust information that may affect a generated payroll file.

  7. Click on the Update button to save the adjustment(s).

     

    NOTE: Manual time adjustments are automatically audited with the editor's name, time of adjustment, and original Time In or Out. A flag displays to the right of the Time In/Out pair identifying it as an adjusted time event. Click on the flag to view the audit and Change Notes.



IPSOTO module Pay Type Override and Pay Override

TimeIPS IPSOTO module includes overtime options, including allowing a manual override on pay type and pay rate for individual time events.

Option Function
Type of Pay Select to force a pay-type regardless of hours worked or overtime policy. Generally used to force special time to be overtime or doubletime, for example work done outside of normal business hours.
Counts Toward Overtime Select to include or not include this time for the calculation of worked hours in a day or worked hours in a week for the purposes of trigger daily/weekly qualification for overtime, doubletime and/or premium time. Generally used for paid breaks where the time on break will not be counted toward the 40 hours in a week required to go into overtime.
Hourly Rate Force an hourly rate for this work. Leave blank to follow employee/job pay rate, if set.
Hourly Differential Force an hourly differential for this work. Leave blank to follow job differential, if set.
Rate Multiplier Force a rate multiplier for this work. Leave blank to follow employee/job multiplier, if set.

Pay Override Note: Normally, only set one of the three Pay Override options. If multiple options are set, they will be calculated in order: Hourly Rate, Hourly Differential and Rate Multiplier. Example: If the hourly rate is $10.00, with a differential of $2.00 and a rate multiplier of 150%, then the actual pay will be $10.00 +$ 2.00 = $12.00 * 150% = $18.00. This is true for values set here and/or from jobs, or employee rate settings.

The Pay Type Override and Pay Override set here are given top priority, and if set, will override pay and pay-types set per employee, per job, per overtime policy calculations, or elsewhere in the system.

Real Time tracking (in addition to paid time)

TimeIPS 1.8 provides a way to track "Real Time" in addition to the regular "Paid Time."

TimeIPS actually tracks three different times for each clock event:

  • Paid Time: The paid time for clocking in/out is used to generate reports and payroll. This time can be adjusted by rounding, snapping, manual edits or other schedule-based modification. When using IPSDBRO, paid time is stored in the adjTimeIn and adjTimeOut fields.
  • Real Time: The real time is the time the employee actually clocked in or out. The real time does not have any adjustments such as rounding or snapping applied. The real time can be edited if the division-wide option to see real time when editing is turned on. This allows tracking the time an employee was on site vs. when the employee was working. This can be useful in an audit or when trying to ensure that rounding or other adjustments have been fair over a long period of time. When using IPSDBRO, real time is stored in the realTimeIn and realTimeOut fields.
  • Creation Time: This is the time that the time in/out was created. When an employee actually clocks, this is likely to be the same as the real time, and could be the same or nearly the same as the paid time. In cases where time is manually inserted, this creation time could be hours or days different than the paid or real time. When using IPSDBRO, creation time is stored in the timeIn and timeOut fields.
