2 OVERVIEW Web-based: Created by TAMU Business Computing Services Group (BCS) On-line timesheets can be completed from anywhere with a computer Support Screen allows you to email support staff questions Help Screen is available at the “?” button
3 Processes 1 st It is my assumption that you currently have a system in place to verify the validity and accuracy of time reported to payroll. 2 nd It is my expectation that you will continue to maintain a system that verifies the validity and accuracy of time reported.
5 Roles Employee Manager Department Approver Departmental Admin Central Administrator Payroll Administrator
6 Payroll Process Overview Employee fills out on-line timesheet & submits to Manager Manager or Dept Admin (usually Dept Approver) allocates accounts Manager approves or rejects the timesheet Dept. Approver reviews & submits timesheets for the entire adloc to Payroll
8 From the employee's perspective, TimeTraq is a simple application.
9 Employee’s Role Access TimeTraq thru SSO Enter hours worked on a daily, weekly, biweekly period Submit to Manager
10 Getting Started Log in to SSO and select the TimeTraq link TimeTraq will display the Employee Timesheets screen on startup TimeTraq automatically creates timesheets for employees Employees with multiple jobs can work with timesheets from either job Select a timesheet by clicking the gray select button or its ID number Each TimeTraq timesheet is assigned a unique ID; refer to this number if you need help with a timesheet.
12 Entering Time Employees normally only have to enter the Regular Work hours Select the correct work week by clicking on the tab with the date range you want to enter Enter your regular work hours each day Click the green Save button to save your changes. Select the next work week and enter that week’s time When you’ve entered all of your time and want to exit this screen, click the Save/Exit button If ready to submit, click Submit Timesheet button
14 Submitting a Timesheet “Sign” your timesheet by certifying that the time entered is true and correct (this is done by checking the box at the bottom of the screen) Press the Submit Timesheet button to send the timesheet to your manager TimeTraq will display the Timesheet Review screen showing that your timesheet was submitted
19 Manager In TimeTraq, the manager's primary responsibilities are to: Ensure that their employees submit true and accurate Timesheets in a timely manner; and, Approve submitted Timesheets as quickly as possible. In TimeTraq, documents that require a manager's approval show up in his/her Manager Inbox screen. Manager Inbox screen Managers can configure their own Preferences so that he/she receives an email when Timesheets need to be approved.Preferences
21 Manager (con’t) Set up a delegate to approve timesheets in your absence To add a delegate, search by last name or enter the other manager’s UIN, then click the green Add Delegate button To suspend another manager’s ability to act as your delegate, click the red Deactivate button. To re-activate a manager’s delegate authority, click the blue Reactivate button
23 Manager Managers work primarily with the Manager Inbox and Timesheet Overview screens. Managers can return a timesheet to an employee for correction.Manager Inbox Timesheet Overview If a Timesheet needs further review, it can be selected from the inbox and displayed on the Timesheet Overview screen. This screen displays detailed information about the Timesheet, including hours worked by day adjustments, approvals, etc.Timesheet Overview screen
24 Manager If an employee has not completed his/her timesheet and are not reachable, the manager has 2 options: Complete the timesheet for the employee Cancel the timesheet If an employee didn’t work any hours during that pay period the manager must cancel the timesheet A MANAGER CAN NOT ALLOW ONE TIMESHEET TO HOLD UP PAYROLL
25 Timesheet Overview Screen Approve a timesheet submitted by an employee Edit a timesheet for an employee Cancel a timesheet that is not needed Reopen a timesheet that has been canceled Reject a timesheet with errors back to an employee Recall a timesheet you’ve approved Timesheets approved by another approver or that have been paid cannot be recalled
33 Manager’s Outbox The Manager’s Outbox screen allows you to see timesheets you’ve taken action on, including approvals, rejections, etc. Timesheets that you’ve approved can be recalled from this screen – if they haven’t been approved by another manager or sent to payroll This screen also allows you to review the outboxes of other managers for whom you are a delegate
Adjustments Use an adjustment to add hours worked previous to the current time period. Time Traq will look up the correct rate based on the Adjustment date Adjustment must be marked as “Done” Put in a lump sum of the hours Describe what days this if for in the Comments 39
