    • Negative time entry profile – Does not record time or submit timesheets unless recording time worked that is more than regular schedule indicates (i.e. overtime or call back)
    • Positive time entry profile – Records hours worked each day and submits timesheet weekly
    • Purdue Webclock – Records hours worked by clock in and out times. Employees clock in and out at a Kiosk or accessing  on their mobile device or a computer.
  • Employees should complete timesheets/Webclock changes by the Monday following the end of each pay period. Supervisor approval is required by 10:00 PM Monday. The Biweekly Calendar of Paydates from the Payroll Calendar webpage outlines pay periods, pay dates and time approval completion dates.
