Why are my new employees not appearing on timecards?

If you add a new employee who is starting midweek in your company, you may find that the employee is not appearing on Timecards or in Timecard reports. This comes down to 2 dates, the start date of the employee and the start date of your timecard week.

                                             

Let's say that your normal work week is Monday-Sunday (27 May - 2 June) and a new employee starts on Wednesday (29 May).

Typically you would run your timecard report for the whole week but the new employee was not active in the first 2 days of the week; therefore, the employee doesn't have a full weeks timecard available to be pulled for export.

 

If this happens in your account all you need to do is have the employees start date match up with the start of your timecard week and the employee will then appear as there is now a full weeks timecard worth of information available for exporting.

 

Why can I only edit recent Timecards/Attendance Records?

If you are designated with a Role (eg. Manager) that grants you permission to view and edit Attendance Records/Timecards, you may notice that you can only edit the records for a number of days after the day in question. If this is the case, your admin has put a time limit on your permissions. 

 

This Time Limit means you are only able to change records with your Employee Portal for a certain number of days after the day in question. The exact number of days is determined by the admin.

 

In order to change this time limit so you have more time to edit these records, or to remove the time limit completely, please contact your admin.

 

Managing Daylight Saving Time in Employee Timecards

When the clocks move forward or backward for daylight saving time, Bizimply Timecards will provide a warning to show you on which days you need to double-check that the hours worked are correct for your staff. This is only applicable for employees who work past midnight, between 11pm and 3am.
