What is the difference between Reported and Calculated Time?
If you enter time or if you are someone who approves time cards for their team, then this is an important message for you!
When an employee creates a time card and enters the number of hours they have worked in the Human Resource Management System (HRMS), the entered hours are recorded as Reported time. These hours do not take into account meal break deductions, that the employee’s regular hours are subject to.
To view the number of regular hours that are captured in the system after meal deductions, the employee must look at their Calculated time within HRMS by clicking on the glasses icon next to their submitted time card.
For anyone who approves time cards for their team, it is important to review the Calculated time for an employee’s time card by clicking on the glasses icon next to their time card submission. Calculated time is a time element that is used for approval and payroll calculations.
