Keep in Mind

· When a worker has not submitted any time entries the Time Approver may need to enter worked time on behalf of the worker.

· Recording a lunch period is not needed if the worker has an assigned scheduled that includes a built-in lunch period. Otherwise, two separate time blocks should be entered for a day to represent the unpaid lunch period.

· For workers with multiple jobs, be sure to choose the correct position when entering time on behalf of them.

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

· Worker name.

· Date of the time entry.

· Start and End time for work period.
