Overview: When using time card approvals, Managers with Approval permissions can review employee time cards at the end of the pay period. If correct, they can Approve the time card and move on to payroll processing. If incorrect, they can Reject or Reset the time card back to the employee to make changes.

4. The time cards selected will be approved and you'll receive a confirmation message. (Right image)

Important: If you cannot check a time card to bulk approve, it means it has time off or punches pending approval that requires action first.

Reject or Reset an Approved Time Card

1. To reject an approved time card, start by visiting the time card for the user in question. Once on their time card, click the Reject button. (Left image)

2. You can then enter a note if needed and confirm the Reject via the button. (Middle image)

3. You'll then receive a confirmation that the time card has been rejected. (Right image)


Q: What happens if an employee submits a time card early?

A: If an employee submits a time card too early, they won't be able to punch in or out. If the time card is approved, it will have to be rejected back to the employee. If the time card is still pending, it can be Reset to Draft.
