Minimize the screen again by clicking on the black rectangle.
The top right-hand corner of the time clock displays the current status to indicate whether to clock in or clock out. The current time and date is displayed in the center of the time clock. Use the “Transfer” button at the bottom of the clock after clocking in to change jobs or cost centers. A new window will open with the option to “select location” (choose a different cost center) and to “select position” to select another job (which will access a secondary pay rate if appropriate). Click on “OK”, and the window will close.

The Timesheet
Once an employee has punched in for work, their punches appear on the Employee Timesheet. Click on “Employee TimeSheet” and select “Load”. This feature tracks an employee’s actual hours worked against their scheduled hours (if schedules are being used) on a weekly basis. The data from the timesheet is then used to calculate pay.
This is an example of what an employee timesheet looks like. Please note the green arrows to the right and left of the date. These allow navigation between weeks. The calendar may also be used to select prior payroll weeks. The main actions that can be performed with the Timesheet are:
Review – Look at a timesheet to verify time and accuracy Comments – Add comments to identify and track any discrepancies Another feature that is available on the Employee Timesheet is: View Pay
The View Pay Panel

Please note, holiday benefit hours can be viewed in “View Pay”. It is important for supervisors and employees to preview employee pay in My Timesheets. Pay-related problems that might occur on the timesheet include:
Employee hours are calculated incorrectly Pay is classified under the wrong pay code (For example, an employee should receive sick pay but instead receives regular pay) An employee worked at a different location or position for a shift The pay summary has two main tabs: Weekly and Daily.

4. Salary (Manager) Hours Entry
Upon login, go to the (non-labeled) arrow drop down to the far right of the top row. From the drop down, select “Employee TimeSheet” (this is the salaried manager’s own time sheet vs. their employees time sheets which are found under “My TimeSheets”) Click on the “Load” button next to the date and calendar. Use the green arrow in the upper, left side of the screen to go to the appropriate week, or click on the calendar to pick another payroll week. As a salaried employee, time has already been set up in the time sheet to default as “hours worked”. If any dates in the pay period should be recorded as anything other than “hours worked”, such as sick, vacation, jury duty or bereavement, the optimal way to accomplished this is via the “Time Away” request form, which may be used for dates in the past, but the manager’s supervisor must approve it in order for it to be updated on the time sheet. Please see “Use Time Off Request” below. If any vacation or sick hours are entered without using the “Time Away” request form: Under “Pay Code”, click on the drop down to select the pay code desired, then, close the pop up. Enter the number of hours worked for each date of the week. Click on “Save” after each entry, or after the hours have been entered for the week. If more than one pay code is appropriate for the week, click on the green arrow labeled “Add a Row” and repeat.
YOU MAY NOTE When adding alternate pay (i.e. “sick” or “vacation”), the “regular” hours do not reduce, and you will see the total number of hours increased for the week, at the bottom, right side of the screen. THIS IS OK. The system will automatically reduce the normal hours by the number of alternate pay hours entered. You may confirm this by clicking on the “view pay” button in the top row. The pay summary has two main tabs: Weekly and Daily. To confirm that hours will calculate at the correct number for the week in

Use Time Off Request: Salary Managers can find their own “Time Away” request form under “My Work”. Go to the drop down arrow at the top, right side of the screen. The drop down list will offer the “My Work” option. Select the green arrow to add a new request. Complete the form (note the vacation and sick balances at the bottom) and click on the “save” icon (computer disk) at the bottom of the screen. (Please note, the “Time Off Request Manager” option on the first screen “My Day” is for the manager to submit and approve a time off request for one of their employees.)
Authorize the Timesheet
Salaried employee time sheets no longer have to be self-approved.

Personal Information
Every employee has an HR record created for them within Dayforce. This record contains all information associated with the employee, from their mailing address to the rules that govern how they are paid. Employees don’t see the majority of the HR record; it is managed by an administrator. However, employees are able to update and manage certain types of personal information.
The Me Feature
The Me feature is where employees go to view and manage personal information. When selected, the Me feature displays a dropdown list with features:
Employee Profile
Path: Me > Profile Select Profile from the list to display the employee profile.
