TL - Navigation in Time and Labor

This user procedure provides steps for accessing Time and Labor pages, starting from the MyUW Madison or MyUW System portal. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

While the Manager Self Service modules provide quick links to the areas a supervisor will need to report or view time, review and approve exceptions, review and approve payable time, and run reports and queries, this procedure will assist supervisors once they are in HRS to more readily navigate within Time and Labor to move from page to page without having to return to the portal main page.

Before using this guide, an employee should know the following:
  • There are two MyUW portals, MyUW Madison and MyUW System, which provide all UW employees access to their Personal, Time and Labor, Absence, Payroll, and Benefit information applications (app).  Each app displays personalized employee information stored in the Human Resources System (HRS), as well as links to HRS-Self Service modules and Help information.


  1. Supervisors will log in to the manager self service pages through the MyUW Madison or MyUW System portal.  
  2. A second logon will be required which will include the supervisor’s Net ID and password.

  3. After the second logon, you will now be at the Manager Self Service - Time Management page.
