Viewing the Payable Time Detail Page in HRS


This document explains how to find out if your employee's time has been approved or if it still needs approval. If you find yourself unsure as to if you or someone else has approved an employee's time, a good place to check is the Payable Time Detail page.

After time is entered and time Administration has run (4a, 9a, 11a, 1p, 3p and around 6p), the Reported Time becomes Payable Time.  Payable Time is created based on the rules and edits within the Time Administration process and once approved, will be processed in Payroll to compensate the employee.

Process Considerations:

  6. The Payable Time Detail page for the specific employee will appear.
  7. The Status column will tell you if the time has been "Approved", "Needs Approval", or has been "Taken by Payroll".  "Taken by Payroll" means that the time has been approved and has moved on to the next step in the process of paying the employee.

    *NOTE:  Make sure the Start and End date are set for the correct Time Period you are looking for.

  8. Below is an example of some time that "Needs Approval".  Also, if you look in the Quantity column, you could possibly see negative numbers.  This means that changes were made to the originally submitted time.  The negative number is reflecting that you need to approve taking away the faulty original entry.  You should also see a positive number for the same day, as in the example below, with a different amount of time (reflecting the change that was made).  This is indicating that you also need to approve the change to the original entry of time.
