Electronic Timesheet Improvements

It has been about six months since the campus-wide implementation of the new Electronic Timesheet System (ETS) for exempt employees.  (See “The New Green Timesheet” in the April, 2010 issue of CITS Bits.)  It is being widely used, and CITS has continuously made improvements and refinements to it based on user feedback.  In the coming weeks, another improvement  will be implemented:  the ability to access the ‘Approve Exempt Timesheet’ function directly from the ‘My UMB Personal Information’ page.  This simplifies the process and significantly reduces the number of clicks needed to get to this page.  Also added for timesheet approvers will be the ability to approve multiple timesheets for an employee in a single transaction, thereby improving the user experience for Supervisors and Department payroll representatives.
