Keep in Mind

· Time Approvers and HRPs can only Mass Submit Time for workers within the supervisory organizations they manage. This process is not available for workers outside of their assigned supervisory organizations.

· When a Time Approver completes the Mass Submit Time process, time is submitted AND approved on behalf of workers at the same time. The Mass Submit Time process does not provide an option to Review Time.

· To Review Time, please see the Completing a Mass Review Time in Workday Knowledge Base article for more information.

· When selecting Run Frequency, it is a best practice to utilize Run Now on an ad hoc basis to have better control over time submissions.

· The following information is needed to complete this business process:

· CNET ID & Password

· Worker name

· Pay Period
