How do I set my timesheet when I work past midnight?

Working past midnight2:36

"How do I set my timesheet when I work past midnight?"

The timesheets can store both the working time before midnight, or in other words, the late evening before the timesheet's date. And also it can store working time after midnight, or in other words, the early morning after the timesheet's date.

To set a timesheet time that's earlier than midnight:

  1. First, tap: MenuMy timesheet
  2. Next, tap: Add time
  3. Then drag the start slider to the very left most edge.
  4. You'll see that the start time shows as minus 10 pm.
  5. The minus symbol means the day before, so the example means 10 pm on the late evening before the timesheet's date.
  6. Next, drag the end slider to 2 am.
  7. You now have a four hour shift that started on the previous evening and goes through to 2 am of the current day.
  8. And finally, tap: Save

To set a timesheet time that's after midnight:

  1. First, tap: MenuMy timesheet
  2. Next, tap: Add time
  3. Then drag the start slider all the way across to 11 pm.
  4. Next, drag its end slider past midnight and across to 3 am.
  5. Now you'll see that the end time shows as plus 3 am. The plus symbol means the day after, so the example means 3 am on the early morning after the timesheet's date.
  6. And finally, after you tap Save, you'll see the total hours.

Keep in mind that:

  • All the steps also equally applies to setting planned times as well. The only difference is you drag the yellow slider instead.

You may notice:

  • That even though the times are before or after midnight, the times still belong to the day's timesheet.

For advanced usage:

  • Remember that clocked-in timesheet time is always paid as part of the paystub the timesheet date belongs to.
  • So, what happens if a January pay period had a first of January timesheet, with hours worked before midnight?
  • In the example, those hours before midnight, in reality, were worked on December 31st.
  • However, because those hours were recorded on the first of January timesheet, the hours are be paid as part of the January pay period.

And that's it! That's everything you need to know about setting your timesheet when you work past midnight!
