    Click on Save after entering all the relevant information.

    Payroll Hours can only be added for dates after the employee or system lock date.

    The Comment Tab

    Use the comment tab to add comments as to the reason for adding the manual hours record.




    The Job Costing Tab

    The Job Costing tab is only visible if this feature has been installed and it allows you to enter job costing information for job hours.



    Select the job and/or classification you are adding the hours for.  If you are overriding hours, the job information must match that of the existing record.

    Changing or Removing Daily Hours

    You can only change or remove manual records.  Both actions can be done by highlighting the record you wish to change or remove and clicking on the Change button.

    You can then change any of the details in the Weekly Hours Form. 

    To remove a manual record, select the Deleted option next to Approved.



    Click on Save to save your changes.

    Please note:  if the Save button is not visible then the record has been locked and cannot be edited.


    When adding manual records, do not add more than one record for a date.  Remember that you can override the existing hours in which case you need to enter ALL the hours the employee has to receive for that date.  If you entered any of the information incorrectly you can always go back and change the manual record as described in the section above.

    When adding payroll hours make sure that you select the payroll ending date to which the change must apply to.  A record added for a date other than the payroll period ending date may have no effect on your payroll hours.
