Start Date

Enter the start date for this timesheet. The system creates timesheets in weekly increments.

Enter T to have the system default the current date.

Note: If this timesheet was generated from a work completed labor line (in SM Work Orders), the start date will default based on the labor entry date and the pay period defined for the payroll group. For example, if you have a pay period of 04/01/12 through 04/07/12, and the labor entry date (in SM) is 04/02/12, the timesheet created here will have a start date of 04/01/12.

However, because timesheets are in 7-day increments, if your pay periods span multiple weeks, the system will use the pay period start "day" to determine the start date for labor hours posted in each week of the pay period. For example, say your pay period runs 04/01/12 — 04/15/12. The start date, 04/01/12, falls on Sunday, so this is the "day" the system will use when determining the Start Date for timesheets posted in each week of the pay period. Therefore, labor hours posted on 04/01/12 through 04/07/12 will have a start date of 04/01/12; labor hours posted on 04/08/12 through 04/14/12 will have a start date of 04/08/12; and labor hours posted on 04/15/12 will have a start date of 04/15/12.
