How Each of These Widgets Can Help You Manage Your Team
As a supervisor, you have two different dashboards in UKG Ready to assist you in your role as an employee and as a supervisor. These are separated by two different tabs:

Personal Hub — This tab is where your personal items regarding time & attendance live such as your own personal timesheet, your accruals, your time-off requests, etc.

My Team—This tab is where all team related tasks regarding your supervisor responsibilities such as approving timeoff requests and timesheets, managing missed punches, team lists, etc. will live. This tab is broken down below:

Start Menu — This menu acts as a central hub for your widgets to help you in managing your team’s attendance routines. Each icon opens lists that will help you navigate to your most frequently used items in UKG Ready: your personal items, your team’s timesheets, your team’s time-off requests, and missed punches from your team’s timesheets.

Timesheets no longer will be submitted and approved on a weekly basis. The university now submits timesheets per pay period. • If you are a supervisor over Biweekly employees, your team submits their timesheets at
the end of every two weeks for your approval. • If you are a supervisor over Non-Exempt or Salary Exempt employees, your team submits
their timesheets at the end of every pay period. The timesheet process is on a deadline-oriented schedule rather than a weekly schedule. The timesheets now conform to our university payroll schedule. With this in mind, your role in the process is critical for your team’s time being pulled into the upcoming payroll.
 Employees should submit timesheets IMMEDIATELY after their final punch of the pay period.
 All supervisory approvals for timesheets are due should be completed by the following business day after the pay period ends. These approvals should be completed no later than the two business days after the pay period ends.
 If for any reason you will be unable to fulfill your supervisor responsibilities due to a conflict/absence, please contact Human Resources in advance to make arrangements for delegation procedures.
 Work hour totals for Non-Exempt employees will fluctuate based on the number of days of the pay period. Human Resources will send out reminders each pay period to confirm these totals.
 Overtime procedures HAVE NOT changed. Approval from the president is still required, and must be forwarded to Human Resources once received. In the event you have a need to seek overtime approval, please make this request AT LEAST one week in advance in order for us to remain on schedule for payroll.
TIP : All automatic notifications/reminders from UKG Ready will be sent to you from this email address:
