TL - Punch Positive Timesheet Entry (Employee & Manager)


A typical employee who would use this type of timesheet would be a non-exempt employee with a varied work schedule and has not been assigned a schedule in HRS. These types of employees must manually enter the IN and OUT punches for each shift worked on the timesheet for each day of the pay period. If an employee with a Punch Positive timesheet is assigned a default schedule, the Submit button must be clicked in order for the hours to flow through for approval.

  • The ‘Auto Lunch’ deduction should only be used for punch exception employees. WARNING!  Unlike Exception Time Reporters, if an employee with a Punch Positive timesheet is assigned a default schedule the timesheet will need to be physically submitted in order for the scheduled hours to flow through for approval.


1. To access or review the timesheet, refer to TL - Accessing a Timesheet (Employee & Manager).

2. Select the correct time period.
