Payroll Coordinators - Frequently Asked Questions

How do I adjust a prior pay period?

Supervisors/Payroll Coordinators can make prior period adjustments once a pay period has been moved to history (after payroll has been processed). Instructions on how to make a prior pay period adjustment are found in sec. 5.9 of the Supervisor Manual.

Why am I receiving a message 'please select an hours type' when entering exception time for an employee?

If you are entering partial-hour exception time for an employee, you must enter 00 in the hours column. Example: An employee missed 30 minutes on a day, you would enter 00 hours 30 minutes under the exception time.

How do I care for the wall clock screen?

Guidelines for the care and maintenance of the time clock:

  • Keep liquids away from the clock.
  • Don't allow moisture to get into any of the openings
  • Don't put spray cleaners directly onto the Clock. Always spray the cleaner on the cloth or towel and then clean it.

For the touchscreen:

  • Touch screens are sensitive, and react to the pressure of the finger being applied. Make the users aware and encourage them to use their fingers instead of pencils or any other objects is a must!
  • Do not use abrasive cloths, paper towels, or tissue paper, which can scratch the touchscreen. Instead, use microfiber cloths, which are specially designed to clean sensitive surfaces.
  • Do not use harsh chemicals, including Windex, anything with ammonia, or alcohol-based cleaners. If a liquid is necessary, you should only use a small amount of water on the cloth.
