Electronic Timesheets or Leave Reports

Once your profile is active in HR/Payroll Connection, an online timesheet is generated for the current period in one of the following ways:

  • When an employee accesses his/her time sheets through the Home or Timesheets tabs.
  • When a supervisor accesses his/her approval list therough the Home or Timesheets tabs.
  • A weekly automatic system check for any active employees.

Staff are responsible for entering hours worked or leave taken for each work day of the period. This can be done daily or at the end of the cycle. At the end of a pay cycle, the staff members should sign their online timesheet or leave report and then notify their supervisor to obtain their approval. Note: A supervisor must approve the online timesheet or leave report before it can be processed in the payroll.


Staff members and supervisors are notified via email when an online timesheet or leave report requires a signature and approval. To ensure accurate and timely processing of online timesheets or leave reports, staff and supervisors must adhere to the payroll schedule provided each semester. To review the schedule, click on the Payroll Schedule icon to the right.
