Manage the Time Clock - An Overview

Permissions control the ability of your Users to see certain data and take specific actions. Before moving forward review Time Clock Administrator - Required User Permissions.

One or more people in your organization should be selected to work with the Jackrabbit Time Clock. 

Managing the Time Clock is a four-step process that should be completed in the following order:

  1. View time entries and resolve incomplete time entries.
  2. Approve or Unapprove time entries.
  3. Close the pay period (all time must be approved before a pay period can be closed).
  4. Export to Excel to work with the data or export it to Express Payroll for payroll processing.

Jackrabbit only accepts a 12-hour format when entering time into the time fields. You will be prompted to enter the next digit and am or pm.  Note: when entering a single-digit number, you must either enter a "0" before the number or enter a ":" after the number. Military time is not accepted!
