Step One

  • Upon signing in, this home page will display. Click on the bell icon in the top right corner.

  • Once the bell icon is selected, a Notifications tab will display with the most recent Notifications.  It is recommended that you select Show All to view all items pending your action.

    • All time card approvals will be titled “Approval of Payroll Entries for XX Name from XX Date Range.”

  • If you do not see the time card approval from the Notifications page, you may need to access the BPM Worklist by clicking on Worklist in the upper right corner. This will open a list of pending approvals in a pop up window.

  • The approval details will display in a pop up window (ensure pop ups are enabled on your web browser).


Step Two

Review your employee’s time entries.

  • The employee’s time submitted for approval opens in a new pop-up with the following information:
  1. Details:
    • Assignee: your name
    • From: Employee whose time you are approving
    • Assigned Date: date and time submitted
    • Task Number: system assigned approval number
  2. Payroll Time Entries for Approval
    • Person Information: If the employee has multiple assignments, this will always be the primary assignment, no matter if it is the assignment you supervise.
  • Name
  • Assignment Number
  • Position
  • Location
  • Person Number
  • Job
  • Department
  • Manager
  1. Time Card Details
    • Time Card Period: Bi-weekly pay period in which the dates fall.
    • Overtime Periods: Indicates that potential overtime is calculated on a weekly basis.
    • Status: this will display submitted until you take action on the timecard.
    • Resubmission Status
    • Time Card Comments / Resubmission Reason: Optional comments entered by the employee.
  2. Reported Time: Time per day as reported by the employee.  As you review, confirm the following as it relates to entering Salary Emergency Leave with Pay:
    • The first day in which the code is available for use is March 15, 2020, the final day is April 30, 2020.
    • A maximum of 80 total hours using the time reporting code Salary Emergency Leave with Pay has been entered.  If an employee should need time beyond the 80 hours, their own Paid Time Off (PTO) should be used.  Salary Emergency Leave with Pay can only be used once.
    • Hours recorded using this code are consecutive. For example, they aren’t using the leave one day, but reporting regular hours (or no hours if exempt) the next day they would have been scheduled to work.
    • The employee meets all the requirements to use this code as outlined in the UW COVID-19 FAQs including previously notifying you of illness and/or high risk status.  No doctor’s note is required prior to using the code, however a doctor’s note is required prior to returning to work.

Below is an example of what a time approval notice looks like for a salaried employee who has entered only Salary Emergency Leave with Pay during a specific pay period.


Step Three
