About the PR Add Trans to Timecard Batch Form
Use this form to add existing timecards to the current batch.
Access this form by selectingfrom PR Timecard Entry. Different filtering criteria is available, depending upon the timecard option selected in the Options section of PR Add Trans to Timecard Batch. Options for adding timecards are discussed in the sections below.
Adding Timecards from the Current Payroll Into Your BatchThis option allows you to add timecards that have already been posted for the specified employee in the current pay period. Typically, this is used when you need to make corrections to some or all of the employee's timecards for the pay period. You can restrict which timecards are added using the filtering criteria in the Restrictions section of the form. To filter, enter a value into each relevant field; if all fields are blank, all timecards for the current payroll are batched. Only timecards meeting all restrictions are added to the batch; a message displays when one or more timecards are already in the batch. You also have the option to flag all timecards that are added to the batch for deletion. Additionally, you can exclude timecards if the employee or pay sequence have been paid.
About Initialize Reversing Timecards from Another Payroll
This option allows you to add timecards to a current pay period that were posted in a previous pay period. When selected, this option restricts which timecards are added using the filtering criteria in the Restrictions section of the form. To filter, enter a value into each relevant field; if all fields are blank, all timecards for the current payroll are batched. The system locates all timecards meeting the criteria and adds them to the batch with negative values.
Using this option, you can 'back out' an employee's posted job earnings and costs, as well as correct entries, for the specified batch. For example, if an employee's time was posted to the wrong job, you can pull in the posted timecards to 'back out' the earnings and job costs. Then, in the same batch, manually add the earnings and costs to the correct job with new timecard lines.
If you are posting timecards for the employee for the current pay period, and do not want the reversing entries to reduce the employee's earnings, post the reversing entries to a different pay sequence. After posting the batch, post a 'dummy' check to account for the negative earnings. This step is not necessary if you post a correcting entry in the same batch or if you post the reversing entries to the same pay sequence to reduce the earnings by the reversing amount.
Timecards Posted to SM Work Orders
Changes made to the timecard will update Payroll accordingly; however, the system will also update the work completed labor lines for the work order as follows:
- If the work order has not been invoiced, the system will update the cost and price information for each applicable work completed labor entry (in SM Work Orders).
- If the work order has been invoiced, the system will update cost information only; the price information will remain intact.
If you mark the timecards for deletion (i.e., check the Mark added timecards as "Delete" box), work completed entries will be handled as follows:
- If the work order has not been invoiced, the associated work completed labor entries will be deleted from the work order.
- If the work order has been invoiced, the associated work completed labor entries will not be deleted; however, the system will set the costs to 0.00 and leave the price information intact.
