Viewing Payable Time in HRS

Overview

After time is entered and Time Administration has run (4a, 9a, 11a, 1p, 3p and around 8p), the reported time becomes payable time. Payable time is created based on the rules and edits within the Time Administration process and will be processed in payroll to compensate the employee. Payable time may be reviewed through the Payable Time Summary page, Payable Time Details page, or the Approve Payable Time page. Payable Time may only be approved through the Approve Payable Time page and may not be approved through the Payable Time Summary or Detail pages.
