Keep in Mind

· Biweekly employees are responsible for reporting their time (this category includes staff, students, and temporary workers). All biweekly workers can use Workday to record their time, report absences, view accruals, and request time off. These workers can be classified into three groups:

· Web clock users – These employees check in and out directly from the Timely Suggestions section on the Workday Home page, or by accessing the Time App.

· Time clock users – These workers record their time by swiping their UChicago cards at a time clock device.

· Timesheet users – These employees record their worked hours via a timesheet.

· Timesheet users can correct their time as long as the time has not been paid.

· If adjustments need to be made for any previously entered time, necessary corrections can be completed by accessing the Time App.

· All corrections must be submitted again for approval.
