Below are the basic instructions to get you up and running with eTime. If you would like to read more about each action, click on the blue title name and you'll be taken to a page with detailed information.

Adding Time

  1. Choose a department from the dropdown.
          - If you only have one department, it will already be selected for you.
          - You can also choose a default department in the Settings Tab.
  2. Choose the date you worked.
          - Some days may not be selected, please see Adding Time for more information.
  3. Choose the start time you worked.
          - The start time is based off of the current time.
          - You can change a default start time to a specific hour in the Settings Tab.
  4. Choose the ending time of your shift.
          - You will be limited as to the number of hours you can work.
          - On the last day of the pay period, you cannot enter time past 12:00 AM. If you work past 12:00AM, you will need to choose 12AM as the starting hour when the next time period begins.
  5. Click Add Entry to save the hours.
