The Time Card menu toolbar contains functions to assist how the screen functions and what you see.
Use these functions to display the employees' time.
The Time Card screen can be customized in the following ways:
▪Locking columns for scrolling.
▪Assigning Attendance Codes to columns.
▪Assigning customization to specific user groups.
The columns displayed on the Time Card can be selected by using the Field Visibility feature.
▪Click on the Actions icon.
▪On the pop-up list click on the Field Visibility icon.
The Field Visibility menu will display.
Saving and Assigning Customization
Depending on the user's security profile, changes made can be assigned to different user groups.
In the example below this user does not have rights to make changes for Company or Security Groups.
When you make changes to your Field Visibility, you can choose any of the three levels to which to save your changes.
If you select Company, your Field Visibility changes will affect all users. If you select Security Access Group, your changes will affect all users within your security access group.
If you select User, your changes will only apply to your user settings.
A user with rights to Save to other levels or groups will see this screen.
The three levels of Save As are:
Company - Assign to all staff.
Security Access Group - Assign to a specific group.
User - Assign to individual only.
When using Save As Security Access Group use the Security Access Groups option to select a group.
▪Click in the Security Access Group window.
▪From the list click on the Access Group.
On the bottom of the Field Visibility screen are options for managing the changes.
Save - Will save changes made.
Restore To Default - Will set all columns to ticked on to display and reset all Alias to default.
Pick up Higher Level - If your Field Visibility access level is User, and you select Pick up Higher Level, your Field Visibility settings will change to the settings created by the users one level up, in this case Security Access Group. The Security Access Group settings would only apply to those users in the same access group as you.
If your access level is Security Access Group and you select Pick up Higher Level, the settings will change to the Field Visibility settings created by the users one level up from this access group, in this case the Company. When users in this group edit the Field Visibility, the edited settings apply to all user groups. If no new settings have been created by the group one level up, the system will take the settings from the level above that one. If there are no Field Visibility changes in this group, the system will return to the default settings.
Cancel - Closes the Field Visibility window without saving.
Displaying Columns and Headings
Each user can select which columns to be displayed on the Time Card.
▪To select a column, click on the check box beside the column.
In this example the user will see Date, Status and Department.
Column headings can be customized by the user.
▪ Enter the new heading in the column's Alias field.
In the example below Facility will display as Building and Department as Dept.
Lock first column(s):
Enter the number of columns to freeze when scrolling to the left.
In the example below the user has enter 5 to lock the first five columns. Columns not being displayed (not ticked on) have to been considered when counting columns.
Based on the above setup the user will see Date and Status locked when scrolling.
Once you have selected which columns should appear on your menu and renamed the column headings as desired using the Field Visibility options, on the Time Card screen you can move columns to the left or right. The dragged column will appear either to the left or right of the column the drag is focused on. If dragging left, the dragged column will move the left of the focused column. The same applies if dragging to the right.
In this example, we will move the Dept column to the right of Day Code.
▪Click and hold within the Dept heading box. As you start dragging the header will slightly fade and the symbol will appear.
This indicates the column is now locked and can be dragged.
▪Drag this column until it rests on top of the Day Code column.
The Day Code column will turn purple to indicate the drag is on top of this column.
▪Release your click and the moved column will appear in the new position:
To save your column settings:
▪Click on the Actions icon.
▪Click on Field Visibility.
▪Click Save on the Field Visibility screen:
Mapping Attendance Codes
Columns can be mapped to display the value of specific Attendance Codes.
Using the left side scroll bar, scroll down through the available columns to the AC columns.
To select the code:
▪Click on the column's mapping field.
▪In the drop-down window scroll down to the desired code.
▪Click on the code.
▪Enter new heading in the Alias column. (optional)
In the example below the user has configured column AC_1 to have the header VAC and display the VACATION PAID code.

The Time Card menu toolbar contains functions to assist how the screen functions and what you see. Use these functions to display the employees' time.
The following options are available on the Time Card toolbar.
This option links directly to the employee's Active Schedule. For example, we can see employee, Maggie Block's Active Schedule below because she is the selected employee at this time.
While in this screen, you can book, unbook, and modify shifts. You may also add, modify, and delete attendance for this one employee.
Simply select the date, click on the Actions icon, and select the option you wish to perform.
The Time Card Filter has multiple options to filter the Hours section.
There is an extra filter on the Time Card to filter to only the time cards with data on them that have not been approved.
Once the filter is applied, the employee list will be reduced to only those time cards for past dates only.
To access the Time Card Filter:
*Select the funnel icon on the Hours section toolbar.
The pay period displayed in the top left will be the pay period in focus on the hour section.
If you have options selected but would like to disable them and not lose them:
*Click on the Disabled box.
This filter will remain selected but not active until the Disabled function is unticked.
This feature allows for multiple actions to be done.
In this example we will select three lines (May 5th to May 7th) to be reviewed using the Action List option.
▪Click in the line's tick boxes to select the line.
▪Click on the Actions icon.
▪Click on Action list.
In the pop-up window tick on the action to be performed. In this example we will be using Rev.

The Save Mode windows shows this is for the Current Employee only.
All three days have been updated as reviewed.
When hours are added, deleted, or edited on the Hours screen, a pencil icon will appear on the edited line. Hover over this icon and the Manual tool tip will appear as shown, indicating that this line has been manually adjusted:
The Reset Manual option is used to undo any manual changes and re-calculate the hours. The system will calculate the hours by comparing the punches to the employee's schedule, then adding the applicable regular, overtime and premium hours according to configuration.
To perform this process:
▪Select the row (day) you wish to reset by clicking on it, so it is highlighted.
▪Select Reset Manual icon.
▪Click Yes to continue to reset the manual change(s).
The regular hours are reset, and the Manual tool tip removed.
This option should be used instead of Reset Manual to recalculate hours when the punches appear BEFORE the schedule is entered.
For example, Jane took a shift for Marco who called in sick. Jane then punches in and out before the manager has updated her schedule. In this case, once Jane's schedule has been correctly updated, Recalculate Punches should be used to tell the system to calculate the hours again, this time against the Day Code, where the over time, premium and lunch deductions have been configured to automatically calculate.
▪Select the date you wish to audit by clicking on it to highlight it.
▪Click on the Audit icon.
The audit trail for the Date 02/24/2021 window appears. To open the sections, click on the drop-down arrows.
