Electronic Timesheet

The use of electronic timesheets in place of paper ones was implemented for exempt employees in the period from mid-February through mid-April of 2010, and for non-exempt and hourly employees from mid-March through mid-April 2011. Most employees on campus now enter their time online. 

Timesheets are electronically routed from the employee to his or her supervisor for approval and then to the appropriate payroll representative. 

Numerous live training sessions and hands-on help clinics were made available to employees during the respective roll-out periods. Self-paced, online training as well as full supporting documentation continues to be available for all classes of employees as well as supervisors and payroll reps, as described below. It can be useful as a “refresher” or to orient new employees.

Self-paced training

Self-paced, web-based training for electronic timesheets is available via the UMB System Tutorials.  There are three “tracks” of training for employees to take depending upon their respective roles.  After accessing the tutorial library, display the individual training topics by clicking on the plus sign to the left of the eUMB Electronic Timesheets purple book icon, and then the ones next to the sub-topic purple book icons.
