Timesheet | Approving and Finalising a Timesheet


1) What is the timesheet & why is this important

The timesheet records the actual clocked data and compares it to the roster shifts for the same period.

Timesheets display actual clocked times for past shifts. This feature can be used by end users to check their past shifts and hours worked.


NOTE: Depending on your permission level, you might not have access to modify your timesheet shifts.


2) Accessing my timesheet

The timesheet can be accessed by:

  1. The View my current timesheet link on the homepage, in the Quick Links Section. This will open the current timesheet period.
  2. Click the 'My Easy Employer' tab at the top left-hand side of the screen and click 'Timesheets'.

Select the timesheet period you would like to view and the timesheet will be displayed.

Through your online account, you can confirm timesheet (actual) shifts and also leave messages.

There are different colours of shifts on the timesheet which are shown in the following picture:
