To make corrections, click the ‘Edits’ tab and select ‘Time Management’ from the dropdown menu.

Correcting Punch Exceptions

From the Time Management menu, you will see punch exceptions that need to be corrected. These are missing punches older than 16 hours. Any punches that are 16 hours or newer will be considered punches within the Punch Threshold.

I = In punch

O = Out punch

LI = Lunch In

LO = Lunch Out

You should have a corresponding IN/Out Punch.  If one is missing, it will cause an exception and needs to be edited to correct it. The example below has yellow highlights show the missing information. To make the correction, click on one of the missing information fields to open it.

When the punch opens, it will look like the example below.  You will be able to make all the corrections needed for this employee’s punch from here, except for lunch punches.

This example shows an employee who had an Out Punch that should have been an In Punch, an Out Date needed to be added, and an Out Time needed to be added. Click on the ‘Time’ box to open a predefined grid where you can select the correct time, or you can add the time manually by typing it in the field. You can also add a note recording why you are making the change.

When you click on ‘Save’, the timecard exception will disappear.
